BEGIN BIDDING NOW!

All these opportunities for bargains AND to support Greenfield's Upgrades are NOW at your finger tips. If you've bought your tickets you have already received an email for self check-in. This will confirm your information, allow you to vault your card and readies you to bid. DO NOT FORWARD your personal auction emails to others. They contain account-specific information.
 
BE READY!
 
Last year MANY found that going online, looking at the catalog and placing their maximum bids BEFORE they hit the party lead to their maximum enjoyment at the event. They could respond to bidding notices while enjoying themselves without having to acclimate themselves to what was available and how to navigate within the system. 

Watch for details of LIVE AUCTION items on Facebook page this week!
 
We've SOLD OUT before! Don't wait. $50 NOW. 
$75 the day of the Auction!


We look forward to seeing you on FRIDAY - 
fresh, hungry, thirsty and generous!
