2019 A Night For Sight Wine Auction

ABSENTEE BIDDING

This year we are adding some new features for our supporters that are unable to attend the night of the event.  You now will be able to submit an absentee bid for an item up until Friday May 17th, 2019.  


How does absentee bidding work?

  • Click on the absentee bid button located below the lot you would like to bid on.
  • Fill out the form with all the required information
  • Tell us what your highest bid would be (this does not mean you will have to pay the highest bid if you win the lot)
  • The night of the event we will have an absentee bidder start bidding on your behalf at the opening bid and then increase the bid by the minimum bid increase until the auction ends or your highest bid is surpassed. 


You can fill out an absentee bid for as many items as you would like.  If you win a lot we will contact you Monday May 20th, 2019 to arrange payment and pick up / delivery of your items.  Please note that if you need the wine shipped there may be restrictions and additional cost.
