Quarter Auction – October 2

WHAT’S MORE FUN THAN A BARREL OF MONKEYS? Why, a Quarter Auction, of course! Mark your calendar for Saturday evening, October 2 at 7:00PM.  (Doors open at 6:15PM)  What is a Quarter Auction? It’s not exactly like Bingo, although you do need to buy a paddle and there will be a cage with balls that are numbered. It’s not exactly like a regular auction, because the bid price is already set, but you do get choose whether or not to bid on a particular item. And it’s definitely not like trivia – no intelligence required!  

The paddle price is $10, which allows you to bid on each item. The bids are one, two or more quarters per item, depending on the value of the item. A Golden Paddle is $40, and automatically gives you a bid on each and every item at no additional cost. IF YOU CAN’T ATTEND BUT STILL WANT TO PARTICIPATE: Make arrangements to buy a Golden Paddle in advance, and then your paddle number will be eligible to win all items offered all evening long. If you would like to participate in that way, please contact Lisa Holderle at lholderle@yahoo.com or call her at 314-962-9979.

Items to be auctioned include toys for kids, restaurant gift cards, Cardinals and Blues memorabilia, books, household goodies, holiday decor, wine and beer baskets, woodwork custom made by Bob Kieffer, and lots more!

You do need to register in advance because spaces are limited. There is a sign-up board in the church lobby, or you can contact Lisa (contact info is above). Invite friends and family, come as a group or come on your own, but be sure to come!  Proceeds benefit “Sharing Christ’s Love” Capital Campaign.
