Download the App
We are excited to tell you that our auction has gone mobile this year! The Charity Ball auction will be using Handbid, a mobile silent auction platform which allows you to bid from your smartphone.
Step 1: Download the Handbid app
Please note we strongly recommend you “Accept notifications from this app” when you open it and join an auction. This will allow you to get push notifications for “Outbid” messages during the auction.
Step 2: Create an account
Next, you can create an account. From the App home screen, tap on “Get Started” button and complete the information (please use your cell phone as the phone number). Tap “Next.”
Handbid will text you a 5-digit code. Enter this code to log in.
Step 3: Select the auction and start bidding
Select “Charity Ball” from the list of auctions and swipe left to enter the auction. Once in the auction, swipe left/right to access categories and up/down to access items.
Whether you are bidding online or in the Handbid App, here are some easy tips to help:
This is the max you are willing to spend for an item and Handbid system will automatically bid for you until you reach your max. Set a max bid and enjoy your evening!
If you have downloaded the Handbid App and accepted push notifications, you will be notified by push notifications when you are outbid on an item. If you don’t have the app you will receive text messages from Handbid.
Monitor what you are currently winning and losing on the Dashboard screen in your app or online.
No smartphone? No problem.
You will be able to access the auction through a web browser:
