The silent auction is OPEN for bidding!

We are excited to tell you that our auction is mobile this year! Win Win 12 will be using Handbid, a mobile silent auction platform which allows you to bid from your smartphone. 

Save time at check-in by getting set up and start bidding BEFORE YOU ARRIVE! How to use Handbid using the app:


If you have an iPhone or Android, you can download the Handbid app from the Apple iTunes App Store or the Google Play store

 Whether you are bidding online or in the Handbid App, here are some easy tips to help:

  • MAX BID:  This is the max you are willing to spend for an item and Handbid system will automatically bid for you until you reach your max.  Set a max bid and enjoy your evening!
