About Our Auction

This silent auction is part of our Raider Promise 2022 Banquet. All funds received from this auction will benefit our ministry and the students we serve, and will be counted towards our $150,000 matching donation! Through your generosity, we will be able to provide for the spiritual needs of the thousands of Texas Tech students that participate in our ministry.

About Raider Catholic

Raider Catholic is the John Saleh Catholic Student Center at Texas Tech University and St. Elizabeth's University Parish. Our mission is to form Preacher's of the Gospel at Texas Tech University. Our goal is to help students find a "home away from home"-- a place where they can rest, study, build relationships, and deepen their faith. Raider Catholic is an amazing community that hosts events and activities every day of the week during the school year. We provide a variety of ministries at Raider Catholic! We host student-lead retreats, fun and fellowship activities, service events, Bible studies, and many other opportunities for students to grow.

It is only through charity and financial support that we are able to provide fellowship and faith formation opportunities for our students. A gift today will impact our students for a lifetime. Your generosity can be used by the Holy Spirit to provide students with personal encounters with Jesus Christ, Sacramental graces, lifelong friendships, and a greater knowledge of our Catholic faith. We thank you for discerning this call to give! Our prayers are with each person who impacts our ministry.

Live Event Information

This year we are doing a hybrid auction! This means our silent auction will be both online and in person. Here is how it will work:
People have the opportunity to make their bids online as normal leading up to the event. At 2:30 PM on 9/16/22, we will stop receiving online bids, and transition to our live event. We will have bid sheets available for in person donors. If you will not be in attendance at the event, you can set what is called a "proxy" bid. A "proxy" bid allows you to set the highest amount you are willing to bid on any item. If someone outbids you at the live event, you are still able to continue bidding by the increments set for each item based on your "proxy" bid.

For example, let's say the current bid is at $200 by the time the live event starts, and I have set a "proxy" bid for $500. If someone else bids $220, the auction administrators will update the bid sheet with my bid of $240. This will continue up until we've reached my "proxy" bid of $500.

If you aren't able to attend the event and you really want a particular item, be sure to set a high enough "proxy" bid! Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
