The Auction Committee will send out a request for donation of auction items, and will meet periodically to organize and prepare the donated items for auction. Members of the Auction Committee will set up for the auction the day before, arranging areas for display and payment. During the live auction portion of the event, an auctioneer will solicit bids from the audience.
When a guild member is unable to redeem a service offered and paid for at the live auction, every attempt will be made to find an acceptable substitute service in kind from within the membership.
At the end of the auction the committee will work to restore the condition of the auditorium.
