We will be using technology where silent auction participants will bid on items through either their cell phones or on site systems. Long gone are the days of having to “stalk” the silent auction tables to ensure that you aren’t outbid. With GiveSmart you will get a text message sent straight to your phone if you are outbid on an item, giving you the chance to just press a button and get back on top. Silent Auction will open June 1st. Stay tuned for details on some of the fantastic packages.
