HOW DOES THE SILENT AUCTION WORK?
We’ll have close to a hundred silent auction items for you to bid on!  During the silent auction, bids are written on a sheet of paper next to the item. At the end of the auction, the highest listed bidder wins the item.

 

 

 

HOW DOES THE LIVE AUCTION WORK?
Our live auction is a blast. You’ll receive your bidding number at the beginning of the night when you check in. As we showcase each item during the live auction, the auctioneer will call out suggested bid values. If you want to bid on the item, hold your bidding number high. Your bid sets a new high-bid mark for others to build on as they try to outbid you! Don’t be nervous… our live auction is very fun, funny and interactive!
