The FARA Energy Ball
Silent Auction is Open-
Bid Now from your Smart Phone!
The FARA Energy Ball's silent auction is open for bidding on the Qtego mobile bidding platform. You can now register and start bidding on over 200 auction packages right from YOUR SMART PHONE. Please share the link below with anyone interested in the auction and supporting Friedreich's ataxia research! Whether you attend the Ball in person or virtually, the bidding process is the same.
Just follow six easy steps below to register and start bidding:
  1. Visit  
  2. Click the Register for Event button on the top right. 
  3. Enter your name, smart phone number you'd like to bid from, credit card and address. Click Submit Registration. 
  4. A text will be sent to your phone with a link to your portal to bid. Tap the link. 
  5. Review items and start bidding from your phone. You can view all the items at once or tap Item categories to see dropdown list of items grouped by category.
  6. Let the Qtego bidding software work for you. Set your Max Bid on an item. The Qtego software will bid against other bidders for you and notify you when you've been outbid. 

We encourage you to review the items prior to the Energy Ball and register your bids before the event. By completing this pre-registration step at home, you can bypass the check-in desk at the event and start enjoying everything the Energy Ball has to offer. The anticipated close time for the silent auction is Saturday, September 25th at approximately 8:30pm. However, you will receive a text message to alert you when there are 10 minutes left to bid. If participating remotely, you may incur shipping charges for oversized or heavy items. All items will be shipped UPS or FedEx ground to minimize cost.

We recommend bidding from your smart phone. It's as easy as tapping on the photos and hitting the submit button next to your bid. However, if you'd like to place a bid from your PC, it will prompt you to enter a "personal pin." This pin can be found at the end of the url that was sent to your phone (after the = sign). It can be a combination of letters and numbers. 

For those attending the Ball, be sure to bring the smart phone you registered to the event fully charged so you can continue bidding throughout the night! 

Please contact with questions. 
Look forward to seeing you soon!
