Over the past 13 years we have seen some exciting changes to our Gourmet Gala. In the last 2 years we’ve had a venue change and a great increase in both offerings and attendance, with this larger venue. This year we will be bringing the addition of our New Mobile Bidding Site. This year you will be able to keep track of your bids, without having to stand guard over that special item you just must have. You can place bids with your smartphone, or with the help of our bidding butlers who will be roaming throughout the event.
This new addition will allow you to receive instant notification if you have been outbid. It will even allow you to set a “Max Bid”, which will automatically bid for you up to the amount you have pre-set. You may also follow your bids on the large screen with the leaderboard which will continuously update.
We brought mobile bidding to our last auction at our Holiday Marketplace and while it took a few minutes to get familiar with, the attendees truly enjoyed the experience.
