The Silent Auction helps us raise nearly $40,000 to support the underfunded programs in the elementary, middle, and high schools in La Jolla.
During our last festival, we featured electronic bidding for the Silent Auction. Patrons could bid from anywhere, anytime before the close of the auction, online from their own device. They could even get an update when they were outbid.
The auction was hosted by GiveSmart
Attendees could pre-register and view all the items before the auction.
Ways to Bid:
Smartphone: Attendees used the link provided in their registration text to see their personal bidding page. From there they could select any item and place a bid.
Text: Attendees could simply text the 3-digit item number and amount they wanted to bid (i.e. 101 500) to 52182.
Computer/Tablet: Attendees selected an item and placed their bids!
GiveSmart Staff: Attendees could also ask GiveSmart staff members at the event to place a bid on your behalf.
