The Hops & Vines gala might have been cancelled for this year, but the silent auction portion of the event is going ahead.
The Hopes & Vines-Virtual Auction will allow Capitol Centre supporters to browse and bid on auction items from the comfort of their homes.
Almost 100 businesses have donated auction items, with an array of items to choose from in time for holiday shopping.
Almost $10,000 was raised through the silent auction component of the Hops & Vines event last year, and organizers hope to raise that much or more with this year’s online auction.
The revenue from the auction will help with the operating costs of the arts centre and public art gallery.
The site will go live Thursday at noon and ends at 11:59 p.m. Nov. 30. The online auction is mobile friendly on the Charity Auctions Today platform. Bidders can bid using desktop computers or any mobile device.
Winners will be notified Dec. 1 with pickup and drop-off arrangements made at that time.
