Preview Hour vs. Regular Auction
The Preview Hour starts at 5:30. The Preview Hour ticket provides you with a specialty appetizer and cocktail pairing, the opportunity to start bidding on silent auction items immediately and the opportunity to BUY IT NOW! Of course the Preview Hour Ticket gets you into the regular auction as well.
The Regular Auction starts at 6:30 pm and your ticket includes delicious food and drink provided by M572, Little's Food Store & Twain's, silent and live auctions.
At Check In, you will receive a bidder number on the back of your catalog. It is also recommended that your credit card be swiped at this time to speed up the check out process. If you don't win an item, your credit card WILL NOT be charged.
Silent Auction Items
Silent Auction items will consist of a wide variety of items, from vacation stays to restaurant gift certificates to wine to pieces of art.
Live Auction Items
The Live Auction will include class art projects, vacation getaways, Hooky with the Head, and the Boost Our Technology Fund-A-Need. When bidding on a live auction item, please hold your bidder number up towards the auctioneer. If a group is bidding collectively on an item, please designate one person to place your combined bid.
All items must be paid for by the end of the evening. For your convenience we gladly accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards.
Once you have checked out and paid for your items, you will be issued a receipt. You will then give your receipt to a runner who will bring you your items. If you need to leave early, you may pick up your items on Sunday, March 19, from 10-11 am in the Color Wheel Art Studio.
