Q: Why did CCA switch to Mobile Bidding?
A: There are a number of good reasons to use Mobile Bidding:
Q: Do I have to register separately for Mobile Bidding?
A: Nope! Registering for the Gala will also enable you to bid in the silent auction. Be sure to sign up with the cell phone number you are using the night of Gala.
Q: I have a friend who wants to come to the event, but is not very good with computers. Is there a way they can get some help?
A: Of course! We’ll have special volunteers serving as ‘Bid Buddies’ at the Gala. They will help anyone who needs assistance with bidding, or does not have mobile access.
Q: What if I cannot bring a smartphone or tablet to the event? Can I still bid on packages?
A: If you have an older cell phone you can register it at check-in so that you receive outbid notifications via text message, but you will need to find a volunteer or ‘Bid Buddy’ with a tablet or smart phone to place bids for you.
Q: When can I start bidding?
A: Approximately 60 seconds after you check into the Gala you will receive a text message containing a link that will take you directly to your personal bidder page!
