Auction Moves Online

This year’s Glebe Auction will be held online.  Bidding begins at 8PM on Sunday, May 31, and ends at 8PM on Sunday, June 7.  We will provide information on how to register for online bidding and access the online catalog as the event draws closer.  Just like in prior years, the items you’ve come to know and love, such as Glebe Experiences, Teacher Donations, and Classroom Projects, will be available, alongside donations from our generous community, families, and supporters. Also, we will host a special portion of the online bidding in a live format, with designated live auction items, on Sunday, June 7, beginning at 8PM.

The Golden Raffle Live Auction Ticket is still in effect. For $100, you have the chance to “steal” any item of your choice from the live auction items (see rules and restrictions HERE). Golden Raffle ticket holders are invited to watch the drawing online on Sunday, May 31, at 7:30PM, and have your cell phone and choice ready. You must be available at 7:30 PM to claim your prize! You can still buy Golden Tickets here.

For those who have purchased a drink band to the 2020 Social & Auction, please consider making your drink band purchase a donation; alternatively, you can use your drink band purchase as credit towards a purchase during the online auction, or as a drink band for the 2021 Social & Auction.  Please email glebeauction@gmail.com to confirm your preference.  Refunds are also available.
