St. Matthew Festival Update (by Jim Guyor)
Rather than having live and silent auctions, the August 23rd St. Matthew Festival is featuring a “One Best Bid Price Mystery Sale.” On Sunday, August 9, you will receive an email with a link to an online form where you simply enter your name and phone number, and then proceed to bid on one or more items in our gallery of items for sale. Each item will have a minimum bid price. From 12 noon Sunday August 9 until 12 noon Sunday, August 23, you will be able to visit the online “One Best Bid Price Mystery Sale” site, view the items for sale, and make your “one best bid price” for each item that you wish to purchase. You can try to buy as many items as you wish. The “mystery” is that no one will know what bids have been submitted by other online buyers. At 12 noon Sunday, August 23, each item will be sold to the buyer who has placed the highest bid price. In the event of a tie for highest price, the winner will be the buyer who offered their price first. You can visit the site and change your bid price, but your last bid will be the one considered for winning the sale, or not. Remember to check your email on Sunday, August 9. Good luck, and make your best bid count! Recent auction donations received from: Jim Guyor and Theresa, Chuck and Max Vondra. Recent cash sponsorships received from: K of C Council 6314 (Platinum) and Lynda’s Real Estate Service (Gold). Auction donations and cash sponsorships are encouraged.
