This year’s AWS Artisan Auction will feature Greater Giving’s Mobile Bidding Software for bidding on silent auction items using your smartphone, iPad, tablet or computer. Bring your device fully charged! There will be no paper bid sheets for the silent auctions.
Bidding Assistance: If you don't have a smartphone or don't wish to use it, don't worry. There will be volunteers at the auction who can place bids on your behalf.

Remote Bidders may pick up silent auction items at AWS during school hours or arrange for shipping within the continental US.
