Auction Donations

How does the auction work?

The Run4Elise auction is a combined online/live event silent auction. Online bidding will open on Sunday, March 17, at 12:00 p.m. and close at 6 p.m. on Friday, April 5. The auction will then transition and re-open LIVE at the Run4Elise on Saturday, April 6. The final closing time at the live event will be specified at the auction table.

If the highest online bid is not beat at the live event, the winner will be the person with the highest online bid.

If bidders have set a proxy to continue bidding up to a maximum amount online but cannot attend the race, we will do our best to ensure that those high bids are honored at the live event. Our hope is that most bidders will be present at the race to pay for and collect their prizes in person.

All payments for the auction will be made OFFLINE in person at the Run4Elise. Cash, checks & credit cards will be accepted. If an online bidder wins an item but is not present at the event, that bidder will be given a period of time to pay; however, if payment is not received in a timely manner, the item will go to the next highest bidder.

In the event of inclement weather preventing the auction from occurring at the event, or if some items are not sold at the live event, the online auction will re-open after the race. More details will be provided as necessary.
