The Auction is a fun way to create community-building events—Dinners, Getaways, and Services—that bring people together.

The Dinners, Getaways, or Services that will be auctioned off are provided by congregants. Other congregants bid on and attend these events, and in this way we get to know each other and raise funds for Unity of Fairfax at the same time!

Here are just a few of the donations you can bid on this year:

    • Lucy Wainwright Roche concert and dinner at Jammin' Java
    • Luncheon and Boating on Beautiful Lake Thoreau
    • Holiday Dinner at Belmont Manor
    • Carry Out Pizza Contest
    • Super Bowl Party
    • Italian Wine Dinner
    • Topgolf Golf Games and Brunch
    • Pumpkin Carving Party
    • Intuitive Readings and Tea
    • Pentagon Tour and Dinner
    • Game Night Party
    • And So Much More!
