The Reeb Rave is on again for this year!  This is one of our biggest annual events – a fundraiser auction where we share dinner, entertainment, treasures, and services.  Save the date for November 12. 

We are expecting to return to an in-person event this year with food, live entertainment, and bidding, as long as community concern levels for COVID-19 remain low in Dane Co. We will also include virtual participation in the event with some online bidding and a Zoom social component as well.


You still have time to help us select a theme for Reeb Rave! Sunday October 10th is the deadline. Click here to vote for this year’s theme. These are the themes up for voting:

  • Garden of Delights– dress up as animals, flowers or anything delightful, because we need some delight after the pandemic.
  • Who is your Hero? – celebrate someone you see as your hero in costume. Entertainment could include music about heroic characters.
  • Love Resists and Persists– celebrate our social justice heroes with costumes, songs, symbols\icons. Decorations could include displaying T-shirts and posters of protests and movements.
  • Masquerade– come in costume with a mask. We could have materials to make your mask fancy!
  • We’re Back! – let’s celebrate getting back together. We could wear our Reeb T-shirts and write on the back “We’re back 2022”. Theme song could be Beatles “Get back to where you once belonged”.
  • Folk Tales\Fairy Tales– dress up as folk and fairy tale characters from any culture; the entertainment could include skits, stories, and songs

The more people participate the more successful and fun this event will be! We are seeking volunteers to help with the event, including providing entertainment. Last year we had some wonderful singing, music, stories and poetry.

If you have any ideas, suggestions or questions please contact Tom McClintock.

Examples from previous years to get you started…

We encourage you to offer items and experiences that help us build connection and community – gatherings, excursions, homemade food and goods, artwork, services, lending, lessons etc. Every year we learn a little more about each other through these exchanges and build more Beloved Community. Other donations are also very welcome! If you aren’t using it anymore, it might become a treasure for someone else. That’s another form of connection too. Feel free to include a little background on items you offer.
