It’s not too late to get involved!

1. Donate to the Silent Auction. We are collecting donations for the Silent Auction and need your help! “Personal experiences” (like a weekend at your cabin or use of your RV or boat), care baskets, gift cards, baked goods, and services (teaching lessons, lawn mowing, babysitting, etc) are always a huge hit. All items should be in new or “like new” condition.

2. Enter your Chili ($25 entry fee). Will our judges pick your recipe as #1 or will you win the popular vote of “Crossview’s Best Chili”? The entry fee will be used for prizes and to help cover the costs of our mission trip adult leaders.

To donate an auction item or enter your Chili in the Cook-Off, please email NextGen Director Alex Ramerth.
