Silent Auction Update

We had a great Give-a-little, Get-a-Lot Silent Auction and were able to make a nice contribution to the "House of Blessings" here in Monticello.  The vegetable soup and cornbread was a great hit.  We will post them later.  

House of Blessings is a local volunteer run feeding program for the hungry and shut-ins in the community.   They serve one hot meal each day, five days a week and are working to expand their services.  They hope in the near future to also provide shelter for the homeless in the community.  

If you are interested, I am sure that they would welcome your donation and time as a volunteer. 

Thanks to all of the donors to the silent auction.  I'll not name names but you know who you are and you have already found the Spirit and Joy of Christmas.  


Just got a time share in Orlando' Sunshine Resort to auction!

Christmas “Give-a-little, Get-a-lot!” Silent Auction  
Lake Cumberland Winery
Saturday, December 19th join us for a Christmas "Give-a-Little, Get-a-Lot" Silent Auction at Lake Cumberland Winery.  It’s free and open to the public.  If you would like to participate in the auction bring a new or lightly used item for sale (no junk, no used clothes, no flea market, please) between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. to the Lodge (To drop things off earlier, just call).  Whatever the bid is at the end of the day (6 p.m.) will be split between you and one of the participating local charities.

The way it works:  
  • Someone bids and buys something they need, 
  • you sell something you don’t need 
  • and you support someone in need. 
That is what we call win-win-win!  You will find the Christmas Spirit!

P.S. It is not a requirement that you bring something to auction or even bid, just come and enjoy.

Two items for the Auction
We will have cups of vegetable soup and cornbread for a contribution.  Wine will also be available all day.

Customize your own wine label! (With our help.)

Paint a wine glass!

Support a local charity!

Join us from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for a Joy-Giving Holiday experience!

Bidding will close at 6 p.m.
