Mobile Bidding! 

You will be able to view as well as bid online for the Silent Auction. The auction is full of incredible items, fantastic travel opportunities, and fun events that will all help to support the cause. 

Whether you're at the event or viewing from home, you can use the auction website to bid on these great items! The process is easy and should you need any assistance, volunteers will be available on site throughout the night.
How it works: Purchase tickets or Register online at https://www.501auctions.com/78auction.
A confirmation text or e-mail will be sent to you. Sign in on the website or click on that link to browse the catalog and choose from the many great items you would like to bid on. You do not need to download an app or open a separate browser. Place your bid on a selected item, with an option of setting a maximum bid. You will be notified on your smartphone if you have been outbid. Registering online is the quickest, easiest way to place bids in the auction and will also help us provide you with a speedy check-in and check-out at the event. Your card will not be charged unless you win an auction item or make a donation.

When the silent auction closes, you will receive a text message if you won any items.  Please self check out online to finalize your purchase or go to the check-out area to pay and pick up your physical items.
