How to Start Bidding
Register for the auction buy purchasing your Gala tickets or by Clicking "Get Your Bidder Number" and following the registration steps. You will need to enter your credit card information in order to be set up to bid. Once your registration is complete, you will get an email receipt. This will NOT contain the bidder number. The bidder number will be sent in a following email within 24 hours, but usually much more quickly.
How does "Buy Now" Work?
Many items have a "Buy Now" option. If you choose to "Buy Now", you will be guaranteed that item at the full asking price. You will not be charged on your credit card right away. All Online Auction items and Live Auction items will be charged at the conclusion of the event on April 16.
When Will I Be Charged for These Items?
Your tickets will be charged right away, however, all Online Auction items and Live Auction items will be charged at the conclusion of the event on April 16.
How Do I Know What My Active Bids Are?
You can track your active bids by clicking on the "My List" link on the Online Auction screen.
What is "Max Bidding"?
Max Bidding allows you to set a ceiling for your bid, some systems call this auto-bidding. The lowest bid increment will be bid at first. As other participants come in and bid against you, your bid will automatically bid higher until your ceiling or "max bid" is reached.
How will I know if I Have Been Outbid?
If you’re outbid at any point before the silent auction closes, you’ll be notified by text message and email.
How is the Winning Determined?
As soon as the silent auction closes, the guest with the highest bid will win. Under “My List” you can check your winning packages.
