HOW AUCTION BIDDING ON YOUR PHONE WORKS
There is no app to install. Bidding
notifications are sent via text message, and bidding takes place in your
phone’s browser. If you don’t have a smartphone, our BidPals will be
there to help you place bids throughout the evening - look for the boas!
Just give them your bidder number which will be given to you at
When bidding, the current highest bid is
shown. Each item has a minimum "raise" amount. Select the amount you
want to bid up to the max amount shown.
For example, an item has a current high bid of $30. Susan places a max
bid of $40. Jerome places a max bid of $45. After Jerome bids, the high
bid goes to $41 and Jerome gets a text saying he is in the lead. Susan gets a text saying she has been outbid with a link to raise her bid. She
clicks on the link and enters a max bid of $50. This goes on until we
raise lots of money for the Arts Program at Two Rivers!
Several of the items have a ‘Buy Now’
button. Use ‘Buy Now’ to end the auction and secure the item
immediately! But move fast - once the high bid surpasses the 'Buy Now'
price the button disappears.
Have a couples ticket? At Check-in we
will check that both of your phone numbers are in the system. You will
both get text notifications and be able to bid! (If you need to have separate bidding numbers ask at Check-In).
WHEN DOES THE AUCTION CLOSE?
The items are spread across three
closing times: 9:30 pm, 9:45 pm, and 10 pm. Check-out begins at 10:30 pm
and the Gala ends at 12 am.
During the Gala if you have questions,
ask the BidPals in the auction area - look for the boas! To be even more prepared, watch the following one minute video: https://youtu.be/WVryjGvzv-Q
