2015 Lobsterfest Gala
Mobile Bidding Instructions
This year’s Lobsterfest Gala & Auction Event will feature Greater Giving’s Mobile Bidding Software, which allows you to place bids on silent auction items using your smartphone, iPad, tablet or computer.
Register your Smartphone
You can register your smartphone and receive a bidder number by providing your name, mobile phone number and credit card information to an event volunteer during guest check-in.
Once your smartphone is registered, you will receive a text message containing a link to your bidder URL.
Simply click on the text message then select the red Yes! button when you see your name.
Your name, bid number and table number will appear on the top left corner of your screen.
View Auction Items
Click on red Show Packages Button to see all silent auction items.
You can also search for items by entering package number or name in the Package#/Keyword box with the red outline, then clicking on the red OK button.
To return to your home page, click on the small, white House Icon in the black band on the top left corner of your screen.
Select Details/Bid button to bid on an item and select the next incremental dollar amount to place a bid or select Watch to keep track of bids on a particular item.
You can keep an eye on packages you have bid on or are watching by selecting the My Bids button.
Watch the event timer on the upper left of your screen in the blank band. As soon as the silent auction closes, the guest with the highest bid will win. High bids will be displayed to others using your Bid Number, not your name.
If you don't have a smartphone, or don't wish to use it, don't worry. Look for the floating lobster balloons! There you will find a Bid Buddy who can place bids on your behalf.
Check to see which items you have won under My Bids. Your silent auction items will be available for pickup when you check out. You may use the credit card you have on file to pay for any items you have won or may provide a new card upon checkout.
