Invitations & RSVPs
The invitations for the upcoming Auction went out 3 weeks ago and were mailed to every registered parish. If you haven't received your invitation, please contact Kristen Figge at 409-6436. Please note that the official deadline for responses is a week from today! Please get your RSVP in now! We did sell out last time! AND note that the ticket price increases to $115 after 11/3.
Also, please be sure to fill in all the information on the RSVP card - we need your email and credit card information to get you set up in advance for the online bidding and the Express Pay. Setting it up in advance saves time at check-in, and allows you to check yourself out via your phone and skip that darn bank line at the end of the evening!
Have a talent or treasure to donate to the Auction?
Do you have a talent, a service, a gift certificate, tickets, a time share, or a treasure to donate? Or, do you own a business or does someone in your family own a business that would purchase an advertisement in the auction program book? The donation form (for a talent, treasure, etc.) can be downloaded at right and should be returned to Sara Buehring at firstname.lastname@example.org. The advertising (download right) should be returned to Suzanne Moore at email@example.com@yahoo.com. Or, just deliver your donation to the office and we'll pick it up! If you have general auction questions or would like to help on an auction committee, contact auction chairperson Kristen Figge.

Fund-A-Need: A Special Giving Opportunity
Each auction year, we ask for funding for special needs that benefit our Mary Queen of Peace community. This year we are challenged to update our wireless internet connectivity throughout the parish campus. Wireless technology is commonplace in all business settings today, and such an update will enable new educational practices to emerge, new security systems, and better access for rectory business, parish meetings, retreats and events. We invite you to consider what donation you can make to this need. Information will be forthcoming on how to contribute.
The auction generated over $160,000 for the parish in 2014, and the Silent Auction is a huge part of that - and anyone can contribute! We need big & small pieces that can be put together in groupings, baskets, etc. We're looking for things like: Gift Certificates to local restaurants & shops
- Passes to local attractions
- Spa gift certificates
- Tickets to Cardinals, Blues, Mizzou, etc
- Sports & music lessons
- Kids Activities
- Bikes & scooters
Please take a look at the Sign Up Genius list.
If you have any gift cards that have been burning a hole in your pocket, please consider donating them to the auction! Grab a friend or your neighborhood & see what you can do to help make this a great parish success!
Please contact Sara Buehring with any questions at 314-308-2466. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
