We’re going Mobile

The 2015 Gala will feature mobile bidding by Qtego Aucton Technology! For the first time, our guests will be able to bid on silent auction items using their mobile phones- no more paper bid sheets! Mobile bidding is a safe, secure, reliable, and a FUN way to participate in our silent auction.
