Live Event Information
Silent Auction/Paddle Raise Auction
On March 5, all auction items open for online bidding. The bolded price underneath each item is the starting bid. Many items feature a "buy now" option, so if you really want something and don't want to risk being outbid, you can scoop it up now for 10% over the retail value. The entire community, including those that did not purchase a Speakeasy ticket, are invited to participate. The online bidding will close at 9:00 p.m. on March 30, and the auction will transition to a live paddle raise at our Speakeasy event on March 31. Only those that attend the Speakeasy will have the opportunity for final bids via a live paddle raise!
Wine Grab Sponsored by VinodiVino
Each person who purchases a Speakeasy ticket will be entered into our wine grab raffle! If your number is called, you may choose a wrapped bottle of wine, but you don't know what you're going to get! All bottles have been generously donated by VinodiVino and are valued at least $30. One bottle will be valued at $100!
