Auction Items

Join us on Saturday, November 18th 2023 at the Hershey Lodge for the Fur Ball Gala & Auction you’ve come to know and love. Start the evening with conversation, hors d’oeuvres and an opportunity to view our silent auction items (which you can bid on using your mobile device any time during the evening). Head into the main ballroom to enjoy dinner and the main presentation which includes award winners and our special Raise the Paddle feature. And don’t forget music and dessert to cap off the evening!

This year we are excited to introduce a new mobile bidding platform Givi that will make bidding easier and more fun!

You will have the choice of using the QGiv App or web-based bidding options. Whether by web brower or app, you can:

  • Bid on items and make Raise the Paddle and other donations
  • Build a watch list of favorite items, set maximum bids, swipe to bid, or bid via QR code
  • Opt in to real-time push notifications to alert you when you are outbid
  • Manage your entire bidding and checkout experience with one hand (without putting down your drink or tiny plate of snacks)
  • You can set up your Givi account when you purchase your ticket or look for “Givi” in your mobile app store.
