Items and services have been donated by the community to be auctioned off. Rather than having an auctioneer, all items are on display with a sheet listing bids that have been placed. If you wish to bid on an item, you sign up for a bidder number, then simply write your bidder number and the amount of your bid on the sheet for that item. At the end of the event, the highest bid wins!
It’s important to know that Autumnfest (and the Silent Auction) are fundraisers for NCS, so we’d love it if items sold for more than their retail value!
At the Silent Auction sign-up table, staff will take your information and assign you a ‘bidder number’. Then, as you find items you’d like to bid on, you simply write your bidder number on the sheet along with the amount of your bid.
You can see what others have bid on an item, but not who bid on it. (Unless you’ve guessed their number, of course!)
