How does the auction work this year?
All auction items will be available through online bidding. You will be able to use your smartphone/tablet or even your home laptop or PC to keep up with the status of your bids and continue bidding until the auction closes. You can be the winning bidder wherever you are in the world!
How do I participate in the online bidding auction?
Get started online through this auction page. To expedite your registration, please register with the auction site prior to the online bidding time.
Browse the Silent Auction and start pick out your favorite items! Bidding begins at NOON on Saturday, June 13th and closes that evening in 15-minute increments per section. Each item section will note the closing time so that you can bet down to the last minute. Place your bid on selected items, and set a maximum bid if desired, and Givesmart will continue to keep you in the running until you reach your maximum.
You will be notified via text if you have been outbid. Keep an eye on your favorite items! If you are NOT receiving the text messages make sure you have the correct mobile number under your profile. The texts will continue to notify you when you have been out bid or reached your maximum bid. When the silent auction closes, you will also receive a text message if you won any items!
For easier bidding you can also do the following:
Set a maximum bid. The auction software will automatically raise your bid by a predetermined increment until your maximum bid has been met or the silent auction ends.
Pay For Your Items
Auction winners are required to make a credit card payment the night of the event.
