We encourage you to use the ride sharing company of your choice and please note that parking across the street in the Harris Teeter parking lot is strictly prohibited.
ATTIRE: Anything goes (within reason of course)! You will see everything from jeans to folks dressed for a night on the town. Come dressed in whatever inspires you to bid!
FOOD AND DRINK: A delicious catered buffet will open at 6:30pm along with our open bar featuring wine, beer, and a selection of non-alcoholic beverages.
SILENT AUCTION BIDDING: Can't be at the auction? No problem! The silent auction will take place entirely via mobile bidding. When you register for the event you will enter your cell phone number and will receive a text message with a link to bid on items. Please note: mobile bidding is done over text message not via an app. The silent auction will open for bidding during our preview on October 24th and will end promptly at 8:30pm on event night, November 2nd.

Please note: to participate in the live auction via proxy or phone bidding you will still need to register on the event website and provide a credit card number.
ARTWORK PAYMENT AND PICK UP: When you register to bid you will be required to enter a credit card number. You will have the option to pay with that card, or via another form of payment (checks are preferred), at the end of the evening. All items will be wrapped and available for pick up after the event.
