The silent auction will open for bidding March 2nd and remain open until 8:30 pm EST on March 7th. In order to maximize the mobile bidding feature, which in turn will raise more money for the school, please share our event site with your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc. so they can bid and/or purchase tickets and attend the event. The link is www.bidpal.net/greenfieldgoldengala. You may also forward this email to your own contact list, refer friends through the auction site and utilize Facebook to drive traffic to the auction site enabling more people to bid on our items as well as purchase tickets to attend. Many schools have experienced tremendous success with online mobile bidding and we hope to experience the same success. However, our success will only occur with your support and that of the people who are referred to the site for bidding!!
