How do I bid on auction items? Can anyone participate in the auction?
Instructions for bidding can be found here and will be shared via email leading up to the event. All it takes is a computer or smart TV to view the program and another internet browser window or a second device like a laptop, tablet or smartphone to bid on items – there’s no special program required. Just like our typical gala, all guests will need to register with a credit card to bid on items and donate to our Hope Gala. You can register for the silent auction here. Click “Get Started” in the upper righthand corner to begin the registration process.
I won't be able to get on before bidding closes. Is there a way I can set a max bid on the things I want?
Why, yes of course! You can set a max bid by simply:
Selecting the package you want to bid on,
Place a Max Bid. The system will bid in your favor until you are outbid or the auction closes.
Can I still bid on items or make a donation if I cannot tune into the digital event?
Yes! Everyone is welcome to participate in the online auction or make a direct donation to the mission, regardless of attending the digital program.
