Join us on Friday, Nov 3 at 6 PM for Renaissance Charter at Tradition's Cambridge program's Quarter Auction Fundraiser. Funds raised at this event will be used for the program's end of the year field trip to Epcot.
What is a Quarter Auction? ~ A quarter auction is part raffle, part auction and part fundraiser.. It works a bit like bingo. When you arrive, you will be given a numbered paddle. This paddle will have a corresponding numbered chip which will be put into the drawing basket. The vendors will have items up for "auction". Once the auction begins, the announcer or one of the helpers will hold up the item that's up for bid and will announce whether the item is a "one quarter" or "two quarter" bid. If you're interested in bidding, you'll put one or two quarters (whatever was announced) for EACH paddle you intend to bid with. A worker will be walking from table to table with a bucket to collect bids. The announcer will then draw a number to find a winner. If they draw your number and you had bid on the item, hooray! You just won an awesome item at a great price. If it all sounds complicated, relax. Everything will be explained again once you get to the auction, and you'll catch on in no time and you'll love it!
