About Our Auction
Welcome to the Greater Oneonta Society Online Benefit Auction!
The GOHS auctions are our largest fund raisers. This is our 17th Annual Auction, and again this year is both online and live. The funds generated help support GOHS' local history exhibitions, the conservation of GOHS’ collections of artifacts and archives, and GOHS’ onsite and offsite programs. With your help, GOHS will continue to encourage historic preservation and promote local history.
Please note participation in the online auction does not require that a credit card be on file. Payment is by credit card online or by credit card, cash, or check at the Oneonta History Center, 183 Main Street.
There is a Donate tab above at which you can make a donation to GOHS at any time. You can donate at the end of the auction when you receive your invoice with all the items for which you were the high bidder.
Online auction items will be posted and ready to view on this site BEGINNING OCTOBER 16. Values listed are approximate.
Visit the Oneonta History Center in October to view a sampling of items in both the online and live auctions.
We are very appreciative and grateful for the dedication, determination and perseverance of our Auction Committee members: Jane Bachman, Bob Brzozowski, Elizabeth Chellis, Bhanu Gaur, Thomas Mark, Marcela Micucci, Liz Morley, Loraine Tyler, and Rich Tyler.
And sincere thanks to the auction donors and sponsors - and to you for bidding!
You're invited to our live auction on Saturday evening, October 28, at the Quality Inn, with auctioneer Kevin Herrick. Admission is free.
Thanks for your generous support! HELP US MEET OUR GOAL! A donation also helps us meet our goal.
WHAT DOES "EXTENDED BIDDING" MEAN? If a bid is made on an item in the last 3 minutes before closing (i.e. 7 pm), bidding on that item is extended for another 3 minutes and this will continue for 30 minutes as long as another bid is made within each 3 minute period.
