How does a Silent Auction work?
Throughout the evening, there will be a designated area within the room that will have a couple tables with names and descriptions of silent auction items.
- Submit a bid on the Bid Sheet next to each item that you're interested in.
- Check back from time-to-time throughout the evening to see if you still have the highest bids. If not, submit a higher bid to stay in the game!
- At the end of the evening whoever has the highest bid to each item wins. It's that simple!
