We’re very excited to announce an upcoming Quarter Auction! Please contact us through this page if you’d like to donate a raffle item.
Doors open at 6:15 at St. Mary’s (Undercroft), bidding starts at 7:00.
Are you new to the quarter auction scene? Here is how a quarter auction works. When you arrive, you will purchase paddles for $1 each. Each paddle will have a number on it. A corresponding chip with the same number will be placed in a large bowl. When the bidding starts, an item/basket will be held up, and a description of the item will be given including the retail value. If you are interested in that item, you will place a quarter for each paddle that you are wanting to bid with in the bucket that is being passed around, then hold up your paddle(s) for that particular item. A chip will be pulled out of the bowl, and the person with the matching paddle wins that item. If that paddle did not bid, the person would say, “No bid,” and a new number will be drawn until a winner is found. There will be approximately 60 items auctioned off throughout the night. There will also be split the pot and raffle baskets. Recurring vendors include: Thirty-One, Lu La Roe, Tastefully Simple, Avon, Scentsy, Mary Kay, Usbourne Books, ColorStreet Nails, Norwex, Origami Owl, Lip Sense, and more. There will also be soft drinks, beer, pizza, chips, and candy bars for sale.
Come out to have fun and support the Band of Pride!!!
