WHAT IS A FOOD FAIR?

  1. A 2-day sale of tickets to future events that involve food, plus a silent auction of individual food items. Everything is offered by members & friends of the congregation. Doors open right after first service on April 30, and we end at 12:30 p.m. We open again around 9 a.m. on May 7, and close up at 12:30 p.m.
  2. EVENTS are offered for dates ranging from mid-May through the following March. Tickets are sold at per person pre-set prices on a first-come basis.
  3. SILENT AUCTION ITEMS: This year there will be two types of auctions: Some will be available on one or the other of the sale dates to be paid for and taken home that day by the highest bidder; others will be available at later dates and awarded to the highest bidder as of 12:30 p.m. on May 7, 2017.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE FOOD FAIR?

EVERYONE!  Meat-lovers & vegans! Individuals, couples, & families!  Young & old! If you like to eat, the Food Fair is for YOU! It’s a great way to meet new people, have a ton of fun, and support the church.

WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO DO THIS?

  1. Many comment on how much they enjoy getting to know new people while sharing great food (whether it’s simple or gourmet)
  2. Some say they feel like they’ve traveled the world without leaving town while enjoying marvelous ethnic meals
  3. One couple even said they’ve come to think of the event they host as a spiritual activity: “…cooking enables healthy nourishment, and eating together is part of community building. Good food provides an excuse to gather, lubricates our interactions (sangria provides an assist!) and is a backdrop to good conversation and dialogue”

HOW IT ALL WORKS

  • Bring your checkbook, cash or credit car! EVENT purchases & same-day auctions MUST be paid for at time of sale. NO IOUs!
  • You MUST complete a BUYER/BIDDER form BEFORE you can sign up for an event or bid on an auction!  Your buyer number is your ID for the sale!
  • Events are displayed in numeric order.  Refer to the list to choose your item & find its number.  Events are listed at set, per person prices.
    – Sign up on the event sheet – one name & buyer number per line!
    – When done, take your BUYER/BIDDER form to check-out to register & pay.
  • Silent Auction: Enter your name, buyer number & bid amount. Minimum bid increase is $2.00.  Auctions close at 12:30 p.m.  Must be present to win a same-day auction, or it will go to the next highest bidder.

Cheers!
