Auction Bidding Instructions

We are pleased to provide you with an easy-to-use and high tech way to bid on auction items. It’s called Text2Bid and it helps everyone bid on the items they are most interested with a minimum of fuss.

Are you Afraid of Mobile Bidding?

Don’t be! We have made it easy. There will be plenty of people at the event to help you. When you check in, if you are feeling uncomfortable with the bidding method, tell someone at the registration desk and they will introduce you to a bidding assistant. This person (or any of the people with a tablet) can help you bid on each and every item you like. It’s that easy — you aren’t on your own!

The mobile bidding site will become active on Wednesday, March 25th, 2020. If you follow these prompts before then, it will say the auction is closed.
