Items range from a week at a Mountain get away, to sky diving, to a trip to Africa, to wonderful theme dinners with your Prairie UU friends, to landscape design and professional organizing.

This year’s event The Journey Continues… Keep Dreaming! is on September 29, 2018, at First Universalist (4101 E. Hampden Ave, Denver, CO 80222). To help plan and/or for more information, please contact Jan Spooner or see last year’s items or upcoming items by clicking here.

Giving Tuesday

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.

Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity. This year, ensure our church’s longevity, and make a donation to the Prairie Endowment Fund on #GivingTuesday.
