For those attending our Rock-a-Bye Ball and are new to mobile bidding:
We are no longer using paper bid sheets for our silent auction items. Instead, you can bid using your smartphone simply by registering with our online bidding hosts, Givesmart.
On your own smartphone, you are able to:
Bid on silent auction items before and during the event
Monitor bids on auction items throughout the course of the night
Checkout and pay your bill without having to leave your seat
Smartphone bidding will allow you to:
Receive notifications about bids on specific items you would like to bid on
Know how many others are bidding on items you want
Set up automatic bidding with limits and caps
Monitor bidding on all items available
Visibly watch the countdown for the closing of the auction on your phone
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO
Before the event, you will need to go to our event website and register as a bidder. You will only need to register your phone number, email address and a credit card for easy payment.
If you don't register before the event, then you can register that night when you arrive. Once you register, you are able to bid on anything you would like. Communications and instructions will come directly to your phone through text messages. If you have questions, a Givesmart Pro is available to help you.
