The UCAC Scholarship Auction, an annual tradition, dates back to the 70s. UCAC members, friends and family gather for what has become the highlight of the year – and an excellent opportunity for everyone to contribute to the Scholarship Fund.
UCAC’s President, David Duff, has made it his mission to revamp the Scholarship Program during his two-year term with a focus on assisting students interested in careers in the trades. The new program will be announced by the new year and will aim to help many more students and those who opt for trade schools over traditional college educations.
The Scholarship Auction is an amazing event with top tier entertainment, a Silent Auction, a Live Auction, fun raffles, an abundant buffet, signature drink and always surprises. Many UCAC members invite their entire teams and their significant others to this event.

Saint Clements Castle
1931 Portland-Cobalt Road
Portland, CT 06480
The architectural design of Saint Clements began with the 16th century castles of Europe. Centuries later, a New York architect named Sidney Algernon Bell incorporated several interesting features in the manor house, which include the long balcony modeled after the Inn of William the Conqueror at Divers, France, and the Art Gallery which was modeled after the Great Hall of the Chateau of Langeais. The two Norman towers add a distinctive feature to the French Tudor entrance.
This is the perfect backdrop for our finale event of our 50th Anniversary Celebration year!

The dress for this event is business dressy or dressy. Men typically wear suits, with or without ties and ladies often wear dresses.
All attendees receive an Auction Paddle upon arrival, with a unique number. There is a silent auction where you can use your number to indicate your bid and raising your paddle during the live auction will alert the auctioneer to your bid. All active members may be billed for items won, but payments will be taken via credit card, cash or check from all others or from members who wish to pay on the spot.
It is always a good idea to bring some cash as we will have some fun raffles. We will have a card reader on hand for this purpose if needed.
