This year’s auction is VIRTUAL (as we have held it for the past two years!). On Oyster Roast night, we will have auction items on display in the gallery of the Civic Center (NOT upstairs, where they have traditionally been displayed). See what’s up for bidding, register and bid HERE. Bidding is now OPEN and will continue until 8:30 p.m. on the night of the Oyster Roast, Nov. 12.
If you think you might bid on silent auction items, but first want to see them in person at the Oyster Roast, we recommend registering to bid before the day of the event. Just follow the link to register HERE.
At the Oyster Roast, each auction item will have a QR code that will link to that item on the auction website. All you have to do is open the camera on your smartphone, allow the camera to focus on the QR code, then touch the link that appears on the screen — that will take you right to the item on the auction website. OR you can download the Auctria mobile app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
For the more tech-savvy, the auction site has a cool feature: you can bid, get notifications on whether you’ve been outbid, and more, through texts. Learn how HERE.
CONCERNS ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY?
No worries — we have you covered! If you do not have a smartphone, we will have a couple of laptops available at the Oyster Roast for your use. We will also have staff and volunteers on hand who can walk you through the process of bidding via smartphone and QR code. Please register to bid before the Oyster Roast and, on the night of the event, make sure you have the password you created when registering OR have the access code you received via email from the auction site when you registered.
