About Our Auction
Annually, the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. Greater Cleveland Chapter hosts its Woman of Vision Scholarship Reception to honor women in the Greater Cleveland Area who are distinguished in their professional and civic achievements. This year we celebrate Judge Lauren C. Moore and Dr. Rachel Talton as the 2020 Honorees. In addition NC100BW GCC will acknowledge emerging local female leadership through its #SheLeads100 award initiative. Co-Hosts are Romney Smith, Anchor / Reporter and Jason Frazer, Meteorologist at WKYC TV. In addition to the Silent Auction you'll enjoy food, live entertainment, and a Curated Vendor Market.
The Online & Silent Auction features exceptional items including fabulous travel destinations throughout the Caribbean to places like Antigua, St Lucia, an award-winning resort in Panama, and the Grenadines. We’re offering club membership to Walden Inn & Spa and an unbelievable opportunity to have you or your family members portraits created by a world-renowned artist. This package includes a stay in either New York City at the Ritz Carlton Westchester or a five-star luxury resort in Palm Beach Florida!
The Online & Silent auction opens its bidding to donors - existing, new, near and far by increasing its reach and participation. Donors bid from their digital & mobile devices and can transition into live participation at the event.

Live Event Information
The WOV Online Silent Auction will transition to a Live Silent Auction beginning at 5:30PM the night of our signature event March 20, 2020. The 29th Annual Women of Vision Scholarship Reception will be held at the Cleveland Marriott East, 26300 Harvard Road, Warrensville Hts. OH 44122.
Auction Administrators will send leading bidder notifications when the online portion of the silent auction ends. The email notification informs leading bidders that bidding will continue at the live event. Online auction participants who can't attend the live event have the option of entering Proxy Bids which we will honor during live event bidding. At the end of the online auction, maximum proxy bid amounts will be requested from online participants. During the Live Silent Auction administrators will continue bidding for online proxy bidders, by writing bids on the bid sheets, making sure not to exceed the maximum proxy bid amounts.
A proxy bid allows you to enter the maximum amount you're willing to spend with the goal of winning the item at the lowest possible price. While online, the system will bid for you up to your maximum proxy bid amount, as additional bids are entered on the item.
