Donâ€™t know what a quarter auction is?
Each item up for bid will be displayed for all guests to see. The auctioneer then gives a brief description, retail value and how many quarters you will need to bid. Guest will give their bid (quarters) and hold up their numbered paddle. If you have more than one paddle, you must place a bid for each one. When all bids are collected, then the auctioneer will draw a numbered chip from the container. If the number on the paddle matches the number on the chip drawn, the guest wins that item. If a matching numbered paddle is not held up, the auctioneer will draw again, until we have a winner. Once we have a winner all chips will be placed back in the container and go to the next item to be auctioned. Still confused? No worries, come and see for yourself! It will be a fun filled night for all!
