2020 Gala Silent Auction Items

Pre-bid on Silent Auction Items

If you can’t attend our Sunday Jan. 26 Gala, you can still participate and raise $$ for Friends of Sax-Zim Bog

Select items Only! (There will be many other items to bid on in person at the Gala…Don’t miss it!)

New this year is a chance to participate in the Gala Silent Auction BEFORE it happens. For certain select items we have opened them up to Pre-bids (the Maximum you’re willing to spend on that item).
But don’t worry…If you are attending in person, there will be MANY items to bid on that are not available for pre-bid. 

HOW TO PRE-BID

  • Decide on the MAXIMUM $$ amount you are willing to bid on a certain “Lot” (lot numbers will be below each photo)
  • email info@saxzim.org with the Lot# and your maximum bid.
  • A proxy bidder will enter your bids at the Gala
  • Your bid will be the STARTING bid for that item.
  • If anyone at the Gala bids above your bid, you will NOT get the item.
  • If there are no “In-person” bids on your item at the silent auction, you will get the item for your MAX $ amount you specified.
