What is the Outreach Auction?

This gala evening features a live auction as well as a tricky tray and is sponsored by three congregations in Bergen County:
  • Central Unitarian Church
  • Unitarian Society of Ridgewood
  • Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Palisades
with 100% of the proceeds going to selected charities. The charities are selected based on the impact they have on those in need in Bergen County, regardless of religious affiliation.

Our first Outreach Auction was held in 2000. Over the years, this brainchild of Central Unitarian Church has grown to include two additional congregations, and has raised more than $400,000 to support Bergen County charities. The auction raises money with bids from $10 to $1,000, demonstrating that when we work together, we are greater than the sum of our parts.

The auction is an annual event calling upon members, friends, businesses and the local community for support.

Tickets: $30 (Includes hors d’oeuvres, beverages, coffee, dessert, and a free sheet of tricky tray tickets valued at $15)
