Ready for a little friendly competition from your smart phone? Join the fun, spread the word and bid high to support our Riverdale PTC.
THE ONLINE AUCTION SETS NEW RECORD
Last year marked the first PTC Online Auction which replaced the in-person Silent Auction, typically held at the Auction event. Our first online auction was a success!
Donors, volunteers, and the entire community made the 2019 Online Auction one for the record books!
Here is how the results stacked up:
- The 2019 Online Auction raised $21,100!
- This was a $6,600 increase from the previous (2018) Silent Auction;
- And a $12,600 increase from the 2017 Silent Auction.
Our goal this year is to increase participation to 100 Riverdale families and raise $25,000 through online bidding.
This year the top 3 highest winning bidders will have a bottle of bubbly waiting at their table on Auction night!* Take it home or go ahead and pop the cork – Cheers to all of you for helping us meet our goal!
* Winners must be present at the Auction event to receive bottle of champagne.

WHAT IS ONLINE BIDDING?
Replacing the Silent Auction, families and community members will be able to browse and bid on a selection of donated items for approximately two weeks leading up to the Auction event. Go ahead and forward the link to your non-community friends and relatives; anyone can join the fun.
Similar to the live auction, paddle raise and raffle games, the Online Auction is to raise money to support the PTC. Whether you have tickets to the gala and are planning to attend or can’t make it this year and want to get in on the fun from afar, there is a place for you.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
WHEN DOES IT END?
Online Bidding ends at 7:00pm on February 28, just in time for the Auction gala.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I WIN?
After you celebrate your victory and enjoy your night out at the Roaring Twenties Auction, you can expect a notification from the auction committee within 1 week to coordinate pick up.
WHAT IS NEW THIS YEAR?

- Original works of art from a neighborhood parent
