Instructions for Participating in the Tucker Maxon Online Auction
We’re excited to have you join us for this brand-new virtual experience! To help you enjoy the auction to its fullest, we have put together a quick “how-to” check list:
Step 1: Register for the Auction. Tickets are no longer required, but you still need to register. This will allow you to bid on any and all items during each stage of our auction! In this first step, you can also purchase Golden Tickets and wine from the “Wall of Wine.” If you need help registering, we’ve put together a quick tutorial with step-by step instructions.
Step 2: Silent Auction Items, Super Silent Auction Items and the Gift card board are now combined in one location in the online catalog. The bidding for all these categories is now open and closes on Friday, April 3 at 6:30, 6:45, and 6:50, depending on the item. You can browse all Auction Items here. On the left-hand side of the online catalog, you can use the search feature to browse items by category. During this period, you can continue purchasing Golden Tickets and wine.
Step 3: The Virtual live stream auction (https://youtu.be/y4NgQq1xCgo) will begin at 7:00 pm sharp on Friday, April 3, right after the silent auction closes. The live stream link will open at 6:30 p.m. to provide time for you to check sound, connection, and review last minute registration reminders. Don’t forget to make your last-minute bids!
Step 4: To have the best virtual experience for the live stream event, you will need two screens or devices. Get both your laptop and phone out to bid and make donations to the Special Appeal.
Step 5: Let the fun begin! Grab all your creature comforts and settle in for a compelling hour live stream. Staying in your pjs? Excellent! Dressing up, but kicking off those shoes? Fabulous! Surrounding yourself with pizza and snacks? Awesome! Show us how you’re celebrating by taking a selfie and using the hashtag #TheSoundsofTucker2020 on social media.
Any donations made during this virtual event are tax-deductible. You will receive a tax document from us in the coming days. It is more important now than ever before for us to come together as a community. Thank you for helping make this a successful event!
