MOBILE BIDDING

Already have your Bid Number? STEP-BY-STEP Instructions Here

This year's auction will use Greater Giving Online Bidding - allowing for a paperless bidding system. Guests will bid straight from your smartphone or tablet on silent auction items. You can easily track Packages by "following" their activity without having to continuously return to a table or bid sheet - you will be updated directly to your phone about the items you have expressed interest in. 

Plus if you can't join us in person this Friday night due to being out of town or a prior engagement then you can still bid on the silent auction items available, supporting programming that changes the lives of our Memphis youth.
