UUOKC Presents: Auction 2012 - An evening in Paris - Sat Feb 19
"Paris is a hard place to leave." - Willa Cather


Our auction is an important fundraising event for the church (and always a fun party), but it is also a great way to bring people together. Do you have a special talent or skill or a unique item to donate? Can you host a dinner? Does this sound like a fun project to be involved in? Then you've come to the right place!
