Serenade in Blue
Saturday, February 29
The Terrace at Cedar Hill

Auction Preview
ONLINE BIDDING HAS ENDED (Top bidders will be contacted)

Serenade in Blue is the annual fundraising event for The Choir School at St. Peter’s. Businesses and individual have contributed dozens of gift items for our silent and live auctions. We’ve curated some of these items for an advance bidding opportunity.

How it works
See something you like? Send an email to serenade@thechoirschool.org with your (1)name, (2)phone number, (3)the item name and (4)amount of your bid.

Each evening between 10pm-Midnight, the website will be updated with any bids received that day. Example: if three bids come in for Southern Grace, the update will read 2/19/20 – 11pm – 3rd bid – $3,200 – DK (bidders initials). That means the highest bid is posted so that you can revisit the site and reconsider your bid the next day.

Advance bids will close at 10pm on Wednesday, February 26. If an item has reached or exceeded its value, we will send an email to the bidder that they have won the bid and ask them to pay online by 5pm Thursday.

Bids will stay active on any items that have not reached their value and will move to the Saturday, February 29 gala auction event. Top bidders for each item will be called prior to the event and asked to provide their top bid (using increments posted), and for their credit card number. If they win the bid on Saturday night, we will email the bidder and process the credit card.
