In addition to our in-person event, there will be a virtual silent auction from November 6-9.

Virtual silent auction
If you can’t make the live event or want to start bidding early, our virtual silent auction will available from Monday, November 6 until Thursday, November 9. You can also big throughout the night on your phone during the in-person event. Here’s how the auction will work:

  • Visit the Silent Auction Pro website to set up your account. If you already purchased tickets for the in-person event, don’t forget to also set up your silent auction account as a separate step so you don’t miss out on all the bidding action!
  • Return to Silent Auction Pro the week of Nov. 6-9 to place your bids.
  • If you are attending the November 9 in-person event, the items up for bid will be displayed so you can see them in person. You will still do all your bidding online.
  • The auction will close at 8 p.m. on November 9. If you are attending the in-person event, you’ll pick up your items before you leave. If you aren’t at the live event, we’ll reach out with dates and times for you to pick up your items at SFM’s Bloomington headquarters.
