All pre-registered ticket holders of this year’s Art Affair will be able to bid early on Silent Auction pieces using their mobile device starting Wednesday, March 8th, at noon. On Wednesday, once your smartphone number is registered, you will receive an automated welcome text message containing your bidder URL. You can bid the next increment, set a maximum bid or simply choose to “watch” certain items. If you enter your highest maximum bid on an item, the system will automatically place bids in your favor until that amount is reached or until the auction closes on March 11, at 10:00 pm. For more information on Mobile Bidding, click here.
For Live Auction pieces, Absentee bidding is available to those unable to attend The Art Affair on March 11. Each Live Auction piece has a “Bid On This Item” button on our Auction Items page where you are able to submit bids for future bidding at the event. An OpenDoors representative will stand in for you to bid to your desired amount, or up to your desired amount plus one increment, whichever you specify.
Bid early and bid strong as you invest in children and strengthen our community!
