Charity Auction Rules

Please note the Auction HAS changed from past years! Updated 25-Mar-16.

  • The auction will be held on Saturday from 10 AM until 4 PM.
  • Auction items will be spread out on various tables in the art show/dealer's hall. This creates more visibility for the auction items.
  • Badge numbers are required to make bids. This will make finding item winners easier. At each item’s scheduled closing time, its bid sheet will be removed from the table. If a particular item is caught in a bidding war between two or more people in the closing moments, this item will move to a “limited live auction” format between only those bidders. No new bidders will be allowed into the live auction.
  • To help simplify the payment process and receipt of items, payments will not be taken at the close of the auction. Instead, all items will be removed from floor to be picked up Sunday morning in the Convention Office. Beginning at 10 am until noon Sunday morning, auction winners should go to the Convention office to make your pick up your item. Payments are accepted in cash, check, or credit/debit.
  • If you wish to donate items to the Auction, the time to do so is Friday between 4 pm & 6 pm. Please go to the Convention Office to donate items. We ask that you notify us of your donation in advance by filling out a donation form at
