ONLINE AUCTION

In light of the Covid-19 related event cancellation, the Blooming Bash auction is moving to an online portal. This format is new to all of us, but we are hopeful participants will be able to bid, have fun, and support our wonderful ECS PCO! We also have some great raffles below!

We are going to utilize Google Forms for our auction. This platform tends to work better on a desktop instead of a mobile device, so please move to a different device if you have access to one if you encounter any problems. There are a number of steps but they are pretty straightforward. The extra clicks are worth it because this Google Form auction allows us to keep 100% of the profits unlike the professional online auction sites.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ONLINE AUCTION:
  1. Register here
  2. View available auction items below.
  3. Click on the item you are interested in.
  4. Read through the description and decide if you want to bid.
  5. Check what the current bid is by clicking on the spreadsheet (“Click here to view the current bids”). You will not be able to enter your bid directly on the spreadsheet. Note the amount on the bottom line.
  6. Go back to the form.
  7. Make your bid following the rules for that item (for example, if the current bid is $100 and the minimum raise is $10, you need to bid at least $110). You are welcome to “bid up” on an item at any time for an amount as high as you are willing to pay!
  8. Click “Submit.”
  9. Repeat for any item you are interested in.
  10. Check back over the course of the week and keep bidding!
  11. All auction items will close at 10pm on Sunday, May 3. Any entries received after that deadline will be discarded.
  12. The winner will be contacted and you will then be instructed to pay for your item(s). Credit cards and checks will be acceptable forms of payment. (checks only accepted from current ECS families)
  13. Physical items will be available for pick up at the ECS Plant Sale at a prearranged time on May 8th at the Intermediate School on Milton Street or a scheduled porch pick in Highland Park until May 10.
While we wish we could have enjoyed a night out as originally planned, we hope you will enjoy this online auction experience. Thank you in advance for supporting our wonderful school!

Please feel free and share this link with friends and family that might also like to participate (however, we are not providing shipping; all items must be picked up according to #13 above).
