Auction & Bidding

A huge highlight of this event is the auction component. We will run a silent and live auction, both of which will be packed with a wide variety of practical, fun, unique, and valuable items we have been carefully procuring for months.

Every ticket holder must have a bidder number associated with them. Bidder numbers can be shared amongst guests, such as two spouses or a mother and daughter pair. A bidder number can be assigned when a credit card is submitted to secure the bidder number. 

Log in NOW to set up your BIDDER NUMBER / EXPRESS PAY so you can make sure that you don't miss out on WINNING the AUCTION ITEM everyone else will be talking about!

Here's how:

1) Login to the HUB
