Ways to Participate
Auction Items are open for bidding! Simply scroll up to the top panel of this page, click on "View Items," and you'll be ready to go. Click on any item and you can scroll either direction and see all the items that are available. (To get back to this home page, simply click on "Home" on the Items page.) The minimum bid or current bid amount is right below the name of each item. The "FMV" amount in the lower right hand corner is the fair market value of the item.
Donations can be given at any time by scrolling to the "Donate Now" section of this page and making your donation. Thank you!
How to Navigate the 2021 CMS Virtual Gala
Now that you are on the event home page, make sure you are logged in by checking the upper right corner of this page. Click on the button to "Sign In or Register" and sign in with your username and password. If your name is in the upper right hand corner, you are already logged in.
Everything for the evening will be on or linked on this page. There will be sections on the home page for viewing the virtual event, donating, and bidding on the auction items. Just scroll up and down the home page to find everything you need for the evening.
If you have a second device (phone or tablet) available during the event, you can actually watch the event on one device while donating and bidding with the other device. You can sign in with both devices using the same username and password.
If you don't have a second device available, once the virtual event starts, you can navigate to the donation section or to the auction at anytime. However, the virtual event will pause if you decide to donate or bid on an item. But not to worry, once you've completed your donation or bid, simply navigate back to the home page, scroll down to the virtual event, and hit the play button and you will rejoin the event in progress (just like if you stepped away from your table during a live event).
Also, please make sure you have a credit card on file to make the auction bidding go smoothly.
