Mobile Bidding

Mobile bidding for the Silent Auction will open up 24 hours in advance at 6:00 p.m.  Everyone will receive an email with instructions and a bidding number.

Please come to the Auction with your cell phone and/or iPad fully charged or bring your charger.  Charging stations will be available in case phone batteries get low.  Bidding stations will be available to offer assistance to those who don’t feel comfortable bidding on their mobile phone.
