Gourmets for God Center Fundraiser


 This year, Adventure in Faith is even more delicious.

Last year, we auctioned off five meals during our Adventure in Faith auction and they were so much fun that we want to invite everyone to get involved!  If you love to cook, host or entertain, host a party and we'll auction tickets to members of our church community.  

To host a meal:  

During September, we will collect your proposals for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, picnics, and barbeques.  Fill out the HOST SHEET HERE or pick one up at the church.  Your parties can happen any time from late November through March 2013.  Let us know when, where, how many people you can feed, and set a starting bid for your meal.  The auction will run for the month of October.  All that's left for you to do is shop, cook and host a fabulous party!

To bid on a meal:  

Let's say a host has offered a chicken barbeque for ten people with a starting bid of $25.  You bid by signing up on the bidding sheet.  After ten people have bid $25, the eleventh person must place a higher bid.  This bumps the last low bidder off the guest list.  Keep checking the bidding sheet.  If you were outbid and you want to ensure your seat at the barbeque, you must counter with an even higher bid.  In the end. the highest ten bids buy tickets to the meal then show up at the appointed time and place for a great time and great food!  CLICK HERE for the rules.

Remember:  It's a fundraiser!  Eat well, meet new people and support our Center all at the same time!
