Plan to join our very first Walnut Acres Virtual Auction from the comfort of your home – the first phase starts tomorrow, Thursday, March 12 at 8am! We’ll be auctioning off Desserts (minus the “Dash”) and selling our entire Wine Cellar inventory through the online auction site.
Bottles of wine will be available for purchase at retail price as “buy now” items. With 200+ bottles, we’re still adding them to the system, so check back first thing tomorrow for the complete selection. Specialty desserts will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Remember, these are portioned for tables of 8, so bid high and be the hero of your neighborhood!
Bidding closes at 4pm this Friday afternoon, so we can deliver desserts to all winning bidders on Friday evening between 4pm-6pm. We will also offer delivery for large wine purchases – if you buy 5 or more bottles of wine and would like to have it delivered Friday evening between 4-7pm, simply email a copy of your receipt to our wine leads, Hillary Bennett and Caroline Clerempuy and they will arrange for delivery to your home.
And that’s just the beginning… As Veronica promised, phase two of our Virtual Auction is scheduled for next Friday, March 20 from 8-10pm. We’re still working out the logistics, but mark your calendar and stay tuned for detailed messages so you don’t miss:
- Best of Live Raffle in advance of items being auctioned
- Live Auction Items coming online for limited time bids
- Fund-a-Need opportunities to directly fund visual and performing arts at our school
- Wine Walk tickets for sale to live auction ticket holders
- Buy-In Party tickets for select events
Finally, we’re disappointed to miss you all at the live gala, but there’s no reason to hold back your Masquerade spirit, so we’ll be creating a special social media channel where you can share your #AcresAlmostAuction moments – stay tuned for more details!
Thank you for all your support!
