December 2022: Silent Auction Writer’s Night and FUNdraiser

December 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


*Please note: Our annual Open Mic Night is normally in December. This year, in 2022, we’ve moved it to Tuesday, November 1 from 6-7:30 pm at the Art Center in Grand Junction. To register for the November Open Mic Night, click this link and then scroll all the way down that page.

Our December event is our first-ever Writer’s Night Silent Auction and FUNdraiser, set for Tuesday, December 6, 2022 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at The Art Center in Grand Junction.

Watch this space for updates.

Why are we holding this fundraiser? We’d like to bring new programming your way and resurrect popular past events like this one: Write Out Loud: A WCWF Live Performance of Original Local Works or this one: Prompt & Circumstance. We also have a new goal of establishing a scholarship fund for high school graduates or GED recipients pursuing a degree in a writing-related field, and we need your help to make this a reality.

Our plan so far: We’ll have fun presenters and lots of fun and useful items and services to bid on, and we’ll keep a working list right here on this event listing. As more items come our way, we’ll list them here so you can plan ahead, newer items added to the end of the list. After all, December is gift-giving season too! (see what we did there?)

We already have a few auction items to list, so here we go.
