2023 Gala Auction

Welcome to the 2023 Gala Silent Auction

The silent auction will be available to both guests in person at the Gala and friends joining us online! We have some awesome items up for bidding, and we hope you enjoy the selection.

Below, you will find a pop out option for each of the 16 auction items. Each pop out will include the unique link to the item’s bidding form and a flyer describing the item. Check out instructions are included in the last pop out option.

To bid on an item, open the item’s unique bidding form in its pop out option. Once arrived, view current bids on the item by clicking on the hyperlink at the top of the form (the hyperlink’s text reads “HERE”). This will open a spreadsheet which includes the current bids on the item. You can then proceed back to the form and fill out the required information and a new bid. The person with the highest bid at the end of the evening will win the item, so make sure to check back frequently on your favorite items to secure your bids! There are no limits to the number of times you can bid on an item.

The bidding forms will be open from 6:00-8:15 pm MST on Friday, 3/10. Winners will be announced in person at the Gala at 8:20 pm. If you win an item but are not present at the Gala, an email will be sent to you with instructions on checking out and receiving your item. 

Please email mineswithoutborders@gmail.com if you need assistance or have any questions. We will have a volunteer monitoring the email while bidding is open.

Please share this silent auction with all your friends and family. All are welcome!
