2020 Virtual Nights in the Winner's Circle - Online Auction
Online Instructions and Rules
The online auction will run from Tuesday, April 14 at 8 am to Saturday, April 18 at 10 pm.
The auction can be accessed via our website or directly through Qtego.
Must be registered through the Qtego system in order to bid- there is no cost to register, but you must register a credit card or payment method to bid.
We have received many wonderful auction items that may have expiration dates which may make bidding in uncertain times feel challenging for our donors. While we have attempted to remove uncertain items, please know that if social distancing requirements cause an item to be unusable, HC will gladly offer a new letter with a full donation value or a refund.
Fellowship Parties (categorized as InstaBuy)- These are a limited number of "InstaBuy" items available and they are based on a first-come, first-served basis. These wonderful parties are hosted by parents, faculty and staff and create memories that will last a lifetime! Indexed Tuition levels are also listed and will be counted and added to the "Give from the Heart" totals daily.
