Sing into Spring with UUCWC’s Spring Auction 2022!
Our popular Spring Auction, UUCWC’s biggest fundraiser of the year, will be held online from April 30th through May 7th, with items and price points for everyone! The Auction builds community, offering many opportunities for us to get to know each other better throughout the year. Your participation helps to make it successful: proceeds account for close to 10% of our operational budget. Best of all, half of the Auction proceeds over the budgeted amount will be donated to Urban Promise Trenton, a social justice organization that enriches and empowers young people.
