Bid It to Win It

Highlands United Methodist Church joins forces with Scudder Auction Galleries for a night of excitement and adventure.  Enjoy the skills of renowned auctioneer Al Scudder as you bid for your favorite items.  All funds raised will go toward funding the church’s new Faith & Fellowship Center.

Five years ago, a similar event kicked off the church’s expansion campaign.  Enthusiastic bidders vied for the rights for fly-fishing trips to some of the area’s most coveted fishing holes and other sporting events.  Fine jewelry, unique hand-made pottery, original art, and one-of-a-kind home furnishings rounded out the many exciting auction items.   

Mark your calendars now to be a part of this fun-filled event – Saturday, October 14, from 5:00 to 7:00 P.M. in the gallery at Scudder’s Gallery on Main Street, Highlands. If you’re unable, send a proxy to bid for you.  Munch on tasty hors d’oeuvres and wet your whistle while you bid on a wide variety of fabulous items. The Auction Committee has gathered a host of selectively-curated treasures that will tickle your fancy.  Bid high and bid often.  One of the premier items that will be offered for auction is a custom-made rug featuring Wildflowers of North Carolina.  The original cost of this rug exceeded $10,000.  Come, capture it and many more treasures for your enjoyment.
