About Our Auction
Welcome to the Cheat Fest From Home online auction, hosted by Friends of the Cheat.
The auction will be live from Monday, April 27th at 12:00 P.M. to Sunday, May 3rd at 5:00 P.M. During that time you can bid on our offerings donated by friends and sponsors of the Cheat!
Friends of the Cheat is a non-profit watershed group whose mission is to restore, preserve and promote the outstanding natural qualities of the Cheat River Watershed.
Each Spring, for the past 26 years, our community has gathered together on the banks of the river to celebrate this place that we love and to renew our commitment to protecting it’s well-being. This year, like so many, we are called to stay home -- in support of our shared health & well-being. While this has been a difficult decision, we know it’s the right one, and we cannot wait until we can all come together again!
For now, we are moving some aspects of the festival to the virtual world. Join us during Cheat Fest week for video of musicians, Education Eddy presentations, a virtual 5K and more.
Much of this we are sharing for free, as we know many are in difficult financial situations. For those who can still support us financially, we hope you enjoy this virtual silent auction! All proceeds will support festival cancellation costs and the deficit to FOC’s operating budget as a result of not having Cheat Fest this year.
In an effort to keep us all healthy, we’ll coordinate a safe pick-up at the Kingwood Office and in Morgantown once it’s safe to socialize again. If you’d like your item shipped, we ask that you pay for the shipping expense. Winners will be contacted to discuss the best pick up / delivery option.
Thank you and enjoy!
