Relief Society: The church's women's organization--the largest women's organization in the world.
Enrichment: Quarterly meetings (outside of Sunday meetings) that allow the women within Relief Society, and friends gather, have an activity, and share in each other's company.
For one Enrichment Activity, the ladies set up a service auction. Women signed up to donate something or serve somehow, and their donations were auctioned off using fake money that was earned (check off items you have done in past day/week/month and tally points). Items auctioned included beautifully painted wooden blocks with the word, "Simplify" on them, scrapbook pages, baby sitting, cleaning, weeding, flower arrangements, framed mirror, porceline art, cookies, cakes, pies, and so on.
Since most ladies probably had earned over $500, there was plenty of money to be spent. The auctioneer, my neighbor, began the bidding of most items at $50. Most were sold between $150 to $250. Some went up as high as $800.
My service was up for auction now.
"[Token Asian Friend] has donated tutoring services for your kids in Math and Science," the auctioneer said. "Pretty much, ladies, we are bidding on her intelligence." A light wave of laughter rippled across the room. He continued, "We'll start the bidding at $10."
It sold for $30.
