Can virtual attendees participate?

The 2023 Framing the Future Gala will be in-person only. However, virtual participants can bid on silent auction items or make a donation towards the Accunet Challenge Match beginning October 6 until 8:00PM on October 12.

When does the auction close?

The auction closes at 8:00 pm on Thursday, October 12

How to place an auto bid

You can set an amount using the Auto Bid feature and the system will automatically place minimum bids for you as needed up to that amount. The system will bid incrementally up to the amount designated as long as someone else places a bid against you. If no one bids against your Auto Bid, the price remains the same.

  • Click the item of interest.
  • Click "Auto Bid."
  • Enter in the maximum amount you would like to bid.
  • Click "Bid."

Note: When two bids are placed for the same amount, the bid placed first based on the timestamp wins. Timestamps are set when the initial bid is placed; for auto bids, this is when a maximum was set, not when the system prompted the bid to win. 

How will I get the items I win?

For in-person attendees, winning auction items can be picked up at the event at 8:30 pm.

For virtual participants, winning auction items can be picked up at Milwaukee Habitat HQ, 3726 N Booth St, Milwaukee, WI 53212, on Friday, October 13, from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.

Can I pay for my items another way, without using my credit card?

You will be required to enter a credit card number in order to place a bid or make a donation. If you would like to complete your transaction another way (check, donor advised fund, or other), please contact Kristi Sebald at 414-316-5612 or [email protected] by Friday, October 7 to make arrangements.

What if I want to make a donation without bidding on any auction items?
