This year we are introducing a new mobile bidding system!
Silent auction bidding will be done with your smartphone using Greater Giving. Don't have a smartphone? No problem! We will have a number of volunteer Mobile Bidding Assistants with iPads who can help you place your bid on an item and check on the status of the item throughout the night.
Bid cards will still be used during the live auction program. Mobile bidding will be used during the silent auctions only.
Bidding on your smartphone can be accomplished in three simple steps:
1. Provide your name, cell phone number and payment information at registration.
2. A welcome text message will be sent to your phone containing a unique link.
3. After clicking the link, you'll be asked to confirm your identity. Start your bidding!
To make registration on event night faster, make sure you enter your cell phone number when you are purchasing tickets online.
Here is a short video from Greater Giving about mobile bidding:
At Encompass, we nurture children, enrich families and inspire community through our 26 education and pediatric therapy programs. Our dream is to create a legacy of children and families who know they are valued. Since our beginnings in 1966, we have provided our participants with the education and support they need to inspire community wherever they may go.
