Fundraisers: Holiday Fair, Spring Auction

Holiday Fair

St. Luke’s holds its annual Christmas Fair on the Saturday before Thanksgiving from 9 AM – 3 PM. It’s fun for the whole family and is a long standing tradition, sponsored by the Parish Life Guild. All proceeds from the Fair support missions, near and far.

The Fair features a number of specialties made by the parish. Many Fair guests kick off the day with a warm, delicious Scone served with homemade cream and jam and while taking note of specialty gifts such as knit items and church mice in the Handcrafts Booth.

Other popular booths include Santa’s Secret Shoppe where children independently shop for moderately priced gifts with the help of Elves after they’ve made their way to visit Santa.

If you haven’t tried St. Luke’s Gourmet-to-Go, you should! We feature lovingly prepared specialty appetizers, soups, and entrees such as lasagna. Items are packaged frozen for shopper’s convenience.

Attic Treasures and Toy Chest feature gently used items.
Visit the Canterbury Gifts for an array of new, fine quality, useful and creative items.Another St. Luke’s Fair tradition are boxwood tabletop tree center pieces and artful greenery decorations.
Grab a bit to eat at the hearty, country luncheon sold at 1 PM.
Finish off the day by finding a sweet treat at Country Cupboard.
We invite guests from the community to join in the fun, support good causes and get to know St. Luke’s Church.

St. Luke’s Auction

The St Luke’s Auction occurs annually in the month of May.  100% of the profit from the auction is given to the Parish Life Guild (PLG) for them to donate to selected charities.  The evening consists of a silent auction during the cocktail hour and a live auction following a sit down dinner.  In addition to raising money for the PLG charities, the auction is a wonderful opportunity for adults in the congregation to gather for fun, great conversation and a wonderful meal.

The Auction is headed each year by a chair or chairs.  However there are many opportunities to become involved from serving dinner or tending bar to helping on one of the subcommittees such as decorations or silent auction.

More information can obtained from the PLG or the Auction chair.
