UU Outreach Auction
The UU Outreach Auction of Bergen County is a yearly event that first began in 2000. The auction is sponsored by two UU congregations in Bergen County: Central Unitarian Church and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Palisades, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the charities. Charities are selected for the impact they have on those in need in Bergen County regardless of religious affiliation. Over the past 21 years, the event has raised over $700,000 for charity.
The 2022 Virtual Auction begins on Saturday, December 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm and continues through December 10 @ 7:00 pm.
