We look forward to our 27th Annual Auction with bidding this March 7-15!
As Geneva Day School's biggest and most exciting fundraiser of the year, we make it all the more accessible by hosting online, with a live component to occur March 13.
Starting March 7, Geneva Day School will auction off a number of fun and unique items to raise money for our school. The more items we have, the more money we can raise! Here are Auction Rules and Auction Highlights.
What to expect in the Geneva Day School Auction!
The Auction is around the corner and there are some amazing items available. Here is what you can expect and how you can start planning your perfect bid.
Online Auction will begin March 7.
Auction items are continually being added this week up until opening.
- You can register NOW to be ready to bid on March 7. You must enter a valid e-mail address, phone number and will be required to enter a valid credit card. Your Credit Card will NOT be charged unless you are the winning bidder
Once registered, you can browse through all the items. Save items to Your Items list and receive updates for those items.
Starting March 7, you can place regular individual bids throughout the week or a Max Bid to help secure an item especially if you will not be present at the end of the auction.
The Auction will automatically end on March 15, 2020 with the first categories closing at 9:00 PM.
Items are divided into categories that will close in 5 minute increments from 9:00 - 9:30 PM. Category Closing times will be posted on the website, Facebook, and sent home in tote bags closer to the start of the auction.
There will be Bid Extensions which will extend the Auction closing time on an item by 5 minutes each time a new bid is placed during the last 5 minutes for that item. This assures that all bidders will have the opportunity to counter any last-second bids on an item. The item will automatically close when there is a 5 minute extension period with no new bids.
If you have any questions regarding the Auction or if you would like to help, please email our Auction Chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Celebration of the end of the Auction, Geneva will have a Spirit Night at Badlands in Rockville on March 13th from 5:00 - 8:00 PM.
There will be staff vs. parent games, Silent Auction, and more! You are not going to want to miss this.
