Get ready for our 2021 blended Bringing it Home GetAWAY! The format will be much the same as last year’s first virtual event, but this year we will have bidding online for both in person attendees in Cincinnati and virtual attendees wherever you are!
This is your chance to share that special skill or hidden talent with your FAUSA family. Be creative and meet new FAUSA members at the same time! Here are some ideas of talents we are looking for that can be offered through Zoom or held in your Metro Area, safely of course!
- Cooking classes and sharing favorite recipes
- Hosting a theme party
- Sharing painting, knitting, sewing and other craft skills
- Preparing your favorite meal for a small group
- Coaching on topics from professional to personal to beauty
- Outdoor activities from gardening, hiking, to bee keeping
- Yoga, tai chi or other group exercise
- And the list goes on….
The donor sets the date, time, number of attendees for the performance of the talent IN ADVANCE; this should occur within one year of the auction. Please note the activities may take place throughout the year so participants will have something to look forward to going forward into 2022.
We also want item donations to round out our online auction catalog! Because we are going virtual again this year, we can conduct the FUNdraising auctions for ONE WEEK, from October 15-22! WOW!! You will be able to check the bidding activity of the catalog items and then BID UP and OFTEN for the ones you want! You also have the option to BUY IT NOW!! Text alerts or just watching on your Computer will be convenient and fun. And of course, the Silent and Live auctions will end Saturday, October 23 with the LIVE event on Zoom.
FAUSA Travel Tote Fill It Up Challenge
The FAUSA Travel Tote Fill it Up challenge has already been met by several metro groups to provide items from their areas to lucky bidders. If your metro group wants to Fill It Up as well, just let me know firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send you the measurements of the tote to give you an idea of how you can fill it! Of course simple gift cards work as well!! We are trying to eliminate shipping costs so submit a photo of the items to be included (and the approximate value overall) or you can choose to make your tote contents a mystery!
FAUSA Quilt Raffle
And don’t forget your quilt tickets! Kathy Coughlan’s design creativity is evident in the quilted throw ‘Desert Dreams’ and will be enjoyed for years to come if you are the lucky winner!
