2024 Annual Auction Saturday March 16th

It’s time to register and buy your tickets at the Auctria Auction website

Save the Date! The FUS Annual Auction will return with our bidding app

We will start our auction activities at 5 p.m. our silent auction, raffles, food, and drinks, which requires a ticket. Early Bird 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. At-the-Door tickets cost $30 after March 13th. Buy early so we can plan the food and drinks! Tickets are available online at our Auctria Auction website (you must register first) or after Assembly on March 3rd and 10th. When you purchase tickets online, they will go into your “cart” and you will pay later at checkout at the Auction.

What Should I Donate?

We need donations, particularly experiences, dinners, and events. Have a cabin up north? Donate it for a week or weekend! Host a dinner, a hike, a bike ride, a pizza party, a tour, a class in something you’re good at (like arts and crafts, cooking, etc.). Offer a service; help in the garden for a day, dog sitting, house sitting, computer or bike repair, raking leaves for a day in the fall (get the whole family involved!) Everyone has SOMETHING they can contribute. Starting thinking about what you might donate, so you are ready when our auction website is open.

Although we have many dinners and events in our Live Auction, we also need get-togethers and fixed-price dinners and events which are less expensive and less work for the hosts. These events bring people together at a minimum cost and effort. Think about sponsoring a walk in a park with a simple picnic lunch afterwards, or a simple BBQ for vegans or vegetarians or hot dog lovers.

Silent Auction

The Silent Auction will be online bidding only. There will be tables displaying items and descriptions and photos are available on the Auction website so you can start bidding early on Sunday, March 10th

To bid on items, you must first register on our auction website. Bidding opens Sunday, March 10th and will end Saturday, March 16th at 6:30 pm. If you are not attending Happy Hour or the Live Auction, you may still bid and we will arrange a time for payment and pick-up. Online bidding closes before the Live Auction begins at 7 pm.

Live Auction

The Live Auction will be conducted in-person only. To bid at the live auction, you must first register on our auction website. Our auctioneer is Colonel Kurt Johnson, who has been our auctioneer for many years. The live auction begins at 7 pm and may be broadcast live. Members who will not be at the Live Auction must have friend or proxy bid using that member’s bid number.
