After 2 years away, Cocoa House Returns to the UUFWC on Saturday, March 25th.
If you are new to the UUFWC, you may be asking yourself… “What the heck is Cocoa House??”
Cocoa House is a super fun evening where Children and Youth showcase their many talents. This was an annual tradition (6 years running!) before being interrupted by Covid. The Youth Community (grades 7-12) plan and host the event, put on skits, and auction off goods and services they gather in the lead up to the show. Children are encouraged to perform in the talent show portion of the evening to get tickets to enter a silent auction. Hot cocoa and other treats will be available by donation throughout the evening. All funds raised will help pay for RE activities. Sounds like fun, right??
So…how can YOU be a part of Cocoa House??
JOIN THE PLANNING COMMITTEE: Youth will be doing the planning for Cocoa House during Sunday RE Sessions at 10am. We got off to a GREAT start in January by picking a theme, filling some key roles, and deciding that a post-show sleepover was a must!
But don’t worry if you missed! There are still lots of roles to fill and lots of work to be done to make this event a success! Join us on Sundays to help.
CALLING ALL PERFORMERS: Children and Youth (ages 18 and under) are encouraged to be a part of the show! Sing a song, play an instrument, recite a poem, tell a joke or story…the stage is yours!
To signup, download this form. Fill it out and email to ymc@UUFWC.org or drop it off in the Youth Community Room. Bonus…anyone who performs gets 5 tickets and a chance to win a fabulous prize!
DONATE: We are seeking donations for our performers! Prizes may be goods such as board games, art supplies, and gift cards or services like cooking lessons, a craft night, or an outdoor play date. Our performers will get tickets and “bid” on their favorites the night of the show. Email ymc@UUFWC.org if you can help.
COME TO THE SHOW: Mark your calendars and enjoy a fun night that supports our Children and Youth!
