JDRF Miracles Gala
2012 Auction & Procurement Information
There's something for everyone in the Silent Auction! Place a bid on your favorites in a wide range of categories including Art, Books, Dining and Entertainment, Health & Beauty, Sports, Jewelry, Travel, and much more! Each item has been given a predetermined starting bid and progressively higher bidding increments. Auction item preview is coming soon!
Guaranteed Auction Bids
In addition to a predetermined starting bid and progressively higher bidding increments, each item in the Silent Auction is also assigned a predetermined "guaranteed" purchase amount.
At any time during the Silent Auction, guests may choose to bypass the normal bidding process by committing to the "Guaranteed Purchase" amount listed on an item's bid sheet. At this point, all bidding on the item stops and the guest with the guaranteed bid automatically owns the item.
If there are items in the Silent Auction that you simply must have, consider placing Guaranteed Bids!
Nothing beats the energy and excitement of the Live Auction! These items are exceptional, and will be offered up for bid as part of the Live program in the Ballroom. You will be given a bid number when you check in on the night of the Gala. When the bidding opens for your favorite item(s), just raise your bid card high so it can be seen by our Auctioneer or by our JDRF Spotters, who will be positioned throughout the room. Auction item preview is coming soon!
