2022 Annual Auction: “Let Us Gather Together, Again!”

Save the Date! The FUS Annual Auction will return after a two-year Covid absence on Saturday, March 26th at 6:30 p.m. CT.

We will start with a Happy Hour event starting at 5:30 p.m. CT, which requires a ticket. Tickets are $25 with a reduced rate of $15 for members/friends of FUS who are first-time auction attendees. Soft drinks, beer, wine, snacks and hot and cold hors d’oeuvres will be served. We have live music from Ted Olsen and friends for your entertainment!

Modality

You will not need to be present to bid! We will have an online Silent Auction available a few days leading up to the 26th as well as a hybrid in-person and online live auction with Colonel Kurt Johnson.

You will pay for your items electronically or by check after the event. Items purchased will be picked up during set hours at FUS and may be delivered if needed.

Silent Auction

The Silent Auction will be online only. There will not be tables displaying items as in the past, but descriptions and photos will be available on the Together Auction website.

To bid on items, you must first register and request a paddle number. We plan to open bidding for a full week beginning Sunday, March 20th and ending Saturday, March 26th at 3 pm.

Live Auction

The Live Auction will be conducted in-person only and online. Our auctioneer is Colonel Kurt Johnson, who has been our auctioneer for many years. The live auction begins at 6:30 and will be broadcast live. Members who will not be at the Live Auction may enter their minimum and maximum bids online and a surrogate will bid for you.

To bid on items, you must first register and request a paddle number. Bidding online ends Saturday, March 26th at 3 pm.
