hbb-2016-Logo

Bid NOW on Huckleberry Bash auction items!!  Auction items include family fun activities, tickets to sporting events, dinners at popular restaurants, jewelry, home items, art, travel and much more.  All proceeds from the Huckleberry Bash benefit our wonderful school and its programs.

How do I see the items that are being auctioned?
Visit http://bidpal.net/huckleberrybash and click on the register tab the first time that you use the site.  You may want to select the notification button to receive an email when you are outbid on an item.  There is also a Buy It Now option.

Can I support Twain by letting my neighbors, friends, and family know about the auction?
Absolutely, we encourage you to send the link (http://bidpal.net/huckleberrybash) to friends, grandparents, neighbors, aunts and uncles.

When does the bidding end on the auction items?  Can I bid on them during the Bash event?
The online auction will stay open until Friday, February 12 at 3pm.  Those who are not attending the Bash event will be held to the high bid they have entered.

If you are attending the “Pages from the Past” event, you will have the final opportunity to continue bidding on all auction items that have not been purchased using the ‘Buy It Now’ option until the event closes.  You will also have the exclusive opportunity to bid on the socials and live auction items that night.

Any tips if I am attending “Pages from the Past” event on February 12th at the Julia Ideson Library downtown?
BRING YOUR SMARTPHONE fully charged as the event will utilize mobile bidding and get a head-start and download the BidPal App now.  This is the App you will use to bid on the items that night.

We HIGHLY recommend that you preview the auction items on http://bidpal.net/huckleberrybash.  You can select items to watch or start bidding on auction items (except socials and live auction items, which are only available the night of Bash).

Finally, parking options for Huckleberry Bash at the Julia Ideson Library (500 McKinney Street) are 1100 Smith Street parking garage ($10 paid via credit card), street parking meters, Uber or Taxi.

Please allow time for traveling downtown.  Friday is generally a very heavy traffic day.  The event starts at 7 pm.
