Pure Game is excited to have launched its Back to Sports Online Auction & Opportunity Drawing on Monday! This event will help our organization continue serving youth in our communities during these times of uncertainty.
This year’s auction will use Greater Giving Online Bidding – allowing for a paperless bidding system. You will bid using your smartphone or tablet on silent auction items. Also, you can easily track Packages by “following” their activity without having to continuously return to a table or bid sheet.
Below are a couple Frequently Asked Questions regarding online bidding, courtesy of Greater Giving. Should you have further questions, please contact our Director of Development Cristina Velasquez at [email protected].
