About Our Auction
Welcome to the Geneva Music Festival’s 2024 Spring Benefit auction!
This online auction will run from 10 am on Friday, March 1 to NOON on Friday, March 8.
Most of the items will be auctioned off by March 8 at noon, but bidding on a few items (marked with an asterisk) will finish up in an in-person auction during the intermission of our Spring Benefit Concert (see info below). If you aren't able to attend the concert, you may submit a proxy bid (highest bid you're willing to make) for any of these Eight items and a GMF volunteer will bid for you. To make a proxy bid, just click on the "Proxy Bid" button that is next to the "Exact Bid" button.
We greatly appreciate your support of the GMF and hope you’ll find lots of items to bid on. We thank the many local businesses and individuals who have generously donated items for the auction.
This auction is part of the GMF Spring Benefit, our largest fundraising event of the year. Please bid and bid often to help GMF meet its fundraising goal! Telling others about the auction and sharing the 32auctions link is a huge help too.
In addition to bidding on one of our wonderful items, please join us at our SPRING BENEFIT CONCERT, Friday March 8th at 6:30 pm featuring Anna Petrova, piano, and Molly Carr, viola performing selections from their newly released "Hers" album featuring female composers from the 13th century's Hildegard Von Bingen to today’s Beyoncé.
We will be serving light appetizers as well as fine wines from Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard and offering a dessert buffet. The LIVE auction during intermission will be conducted by auctioneers Don Wertman and Susan Henking.
Tickets for the concert may be purchased at our website at https://GenevaMusicFestival.com/springbenefit.
