2020 Online Auction FAQ

This year, all Auction items are available for bidding online! You can access the Silent Auction using your computer or mobile device. If you purchased individual tickets through our auction website, you have already received a text message with a link to your personal bidding account.

Please do not register for a new account to begin bidding; rather, you should click through that personal bidding link to access your account without the need for any login or password. As your bidding link is connected to your credit card on file, please only share it with individuals who are authorized to bid on your behalf (such as your spouse).

How to Register

If you are not attending the Gala and/or did not purchase tickets through our auction website, you can register by clicking here to visit our auction website and then choose “Sign In” in the top right corner of the page. (Choose “Sign in with email” and follow the instructions on screen.)

You will be asked to place a credit card on file to complete your registration, but nothing will be charged unless you are a winning bidder or make a donation. Once you have completed your registration, you will receive a text message with a link to your personal bidding account. Use that link throughout the auction to access your account without a login or password!

How to Bid

Once you have accessed your account, browse by category or item name to begin bidding. On each item, you will see various options”

  • Bid: Hitting “Bid” will allow you to automatically enter the next pre-established bidding increment.
  • Set Maximum Bid: Before confirming your bid on an item, the system will allow you to manually enter any amount greater than the next bid or set a maximum bid. As others bid on this item, the system will automatically increase your bid, up to your maximum bid limit.
  • Watch: Clicking “Watch” will put this item in your “Activity” section, accessible by clicking the person icon in the top right corner of the page, for easy access.

As you enter a winning bid or are outbid, you will receive a text message alerting you of your status. You will be notified at the end of the Silent Auction if you are a winning bidder!
