God Auction 2019
July 14, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Once upon a time in Egypt, all of the temples in a city would vie for the honor of having their deity named the patron of the city. The winner was determined by the amounts of aid and support each temple generated over the course of the year. The most-honored deity would become the city’s temporary patron, and be celebrated on special days in the city’s religious calendar. In the God Auction, our modern adaptation of this tradition, we choose a power to study, honor, and work with for a year. This year, representatives of the temples of Horus, Kuan Yin, and Scáthach will compete for your approval and adulation, as measured by food donations for Harvesters and money donations to Gaia Community. Each temple will speak, answer questions, and generally show their deity to the community. Attendees will ‘vote’ with their dollars and food items ($1 = 1 food item = 1 point), and the temple that earns the most by the end of the day will be declared the winner. This is our biggest fund-raiser and food-raiser of the year, and it’s a lot of fun! Please join us and meet our potential powers for the year to come!
