How to Register

This year’s auction will use Greater Giving Online Bidding – allowing for a paperless bidding system. You will bid using your smartphone or tablet on silent auction items. Also, you can easily track Packages by “following” their activity without having to continuously return to a table or bid sheet. 

Ticket Purchasers: If you've purchased tickets to the event, you'll receive a personal bidding link the week before the auction opens. This link will allow you to access the online auction and start bidding on items as soon as the auction opens. Be sure to keep an eye on your email inbox for this link.

Remote Bidders: If you're not able to attend the event but still want to participate in the auction, don't worry - you can still create an account and access our online auction. Public access to creating your bidding account will be enabled the week prior to bidding. Once you create an account and are logged in, you'll be able to start bidding on packages!

Sign up to bid here. 

How to Bid with Online Bidding

Once you have been invited to join Online Bidding, you have a number of options available to you.

  1. Select the Package you wish to Bid on.
  2. Select either the Bid option to bid the next increment, or select Bid More to choose your increment.
  3. Or, if available, select Buy Now to purchase the Package for the price listed.
  4. Click the star icon to save the Package to your Favorites.
  5. To make a donation, click the Donate button on the home page and enter your amount.
  6. Use the menu in the top left to view Packages you have bid on, favorited, or to browse by Category.
  7. When the auction closes, the high bidder can find Packages they have won in the Bids area of the menu.
