Mobile Bidding Information
Whether you’re at home or at the event, everyone will bid on the super silent and live auction packages from their personal devices. The silent auction will open one week prior to the event. Bid with your smart phone, tablet, computer—anything that has an internet connection! Become familiar with mobile bidding and preview the live auction packages before the event begins on October 2. More mobile bidding information will be sent closer to the event.
How to Mobile Bid with Greater Giving Online Bidding
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 all auction items (Live and Super Silent). Also, you can easily track packages by “following” their activity without having to continuously return to a table or bid sheet. You will be notified via text message whenever you’re outbid so you can bid again! You can even choose to “set it and forget it.” Set your maximum bid and we’ll bid for you up to that amount!
- When the super silent auction opens on Monday, September 27, you will receive an automated ‘Welcome’ text with your bidder link. If you do not receive a link by Tuesday, September 28, please contact Darby Knox at [email protected]
- After clicking the link in the text, view all Live and Super Silent packages or begin searching for packages by name, number, or category and save your favorite packages you wish to bid on.
- You can bid the next increment or “Bid More” than the next increment to bid a custom amount. To view packages you are bidding on, click the menu button and select “Bids.”
- If you choose to “Bid More,” you can choose to set your “Max Bid.” If your max bid is the highest, the system will automatically bid in your favor until you are outbid or until the super silent auction closes. If your bid is lower than the highest max bid on that package, you will be prompted to enter a higher bid. If you’re out bid at any point before the silent auction closes, you will receive a text message which will give you the chance to bid again.
- Once the auction closes, the bidder with the highest bid will win. You can check your winning packages in the “Bids” area.
The health and safety of our community is a top priority and we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Offering in-person and virtual options allow our guests to participate in the way that is most comfortable for them. We will continue to follow state and local guidelines and their impact on the event.
