Winners will be contacted via phone and/or email. If social distancing limitations in effect preclude public attendance, members of the public can visit the website to see winning information. The winning raffle number will be posted. Winning auction amounts will be posted, as will the winner’s 5-character identifier code (this can be any set of letters, numbers, or symbols which bidder will recognize as theirs).

  • Due to current conditions, we are not offering certificates for eateries this year. Friends cannot guarantee that all performances will proceed as offered.

  • Bid in whole dollar amounts only. You may submit multiple bids for any item. Your highest bid will be considered final.

  • Increment & Cap Bidding: You may authorize Friends to automatically increment your bid by a specified dollar amount when a new high bid is received. Specify a limit/cap amount which Friends will not exceed.

  • Buy Now: If you submit the Buy Now amount, you will immediately win the item. You'll receive the item subject to payment and the item will be removed from auction.

  • For items where multiple sets are available, please indicate how many you are bidding on.

  • On or around April 30, the current high bid will be posted weeknights on the website. On May 20, the final posting of high bids will take place at approximately 10:30 am. There will be a “quiet phase” from 10:30-11:00 am when bids will be accepted, but new high bids may not be posted. All bids must be received by 11:00 am to be eligible. Automatic incremental bids will continue to be processed between 11:00 am and noon.
