SEE YOU THERE!!! 
Let's celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Partnership between the Church and the Daycare!  Do you own a golden outfit?  Let's party!!
“It’s not just about money... it’s about heart.”
Auction Date: Saturday, April 28th from 5-10pm at the Swedish Club on Lake Union! 

Why is the auction important?

The annual auction is the major mechanism for the Wallingford United Methodist Church and Wallingford Childcare Center to fund:
  • Under One Roof! The Building and Grounds Committee for upkeep of our shared building and major capital improvements
  • Scholarships for youth in the Church's Sister Parish in Guarjila, El Salvador
  • Programs and general funding for the Childcare annual priorities. 
Last year, individuals, families, and friends generated over $50,000 in net proceeds at the event!  Also, we had a LOT of fun!

We are excited to hold the auction at the Swedish Club on Lake Union this year. Their nice on-site catering is providing us with a cost savings, so PLEASE NOTE the 15% DISCOUNT on ticket prices compared to last year!!!! The venue has the perfect space for us with nice views, a room for our silent auction, and plenty of parking!

Looking for other ways to donate/volunteer?

  • We're currently looking for donations for the Dessert Dash. What is a Dessert Dash? The dessert dash involves each table combining their bids to claim one of the delicious desserts available at the auction night event. The table with the largest bid gets first chance at dashing to the dessert table and picking the dessert of their choice. Simply complete the dessert dash card on your table the night of the auction. Be careful though… you’ll need to bid high to be the first table called and be fast to get your favorite dessert because the next winning table number will be called quickly… thus, the DASH part of the Dessert Dash! For questions or donation, contact Daranee Oakley (daranee_o@hotmail.com).
  • We're also looking for volunteers to help out on the day of the event.
  • And finally, we're collecting wine donations of any type!
