Our event host Johnna Wells will have some great auction packages for you to bid on and a special appeal you can donate to during and after the livestream.
How do I participate in the virtual event? When you RSVP we know that you will join us for the virtual event. Closer to the event, we’ll invite you to register as a bidder and keep you informed on exciting event details.
How do I watch the livestream event? The week of the event we will post a link here to view the livestream. We recommend you tune in with 2 devices (computer/tablet and mobile phone) or open 2 tabs on your computer. This will allow you to watch the livestream and bid and give in the mobile bidding platform during the event.

If I win an online auction package, how do I pick-up that package? You will be notified by email if you win an auction package in the online auction.
