A – M – A – Z – I – N – G ! ! !

There aren’t enough words to thank the many supporters who made last evening’s Dinner & Auction an amazing success. The community support was fabulous and we couldn’t have made it happen without the tremendous backing of the Manheim Auto Auction and the confidence of our Lead Sponsors.  We were honored to have a hardworking team of MC students onsite to handle the many tasks associated with orchestrating the event and a special thank you goes out to each of them for their efforts.  Lastly, a standing ovation to the dedicated planning committee who have donated hours upon hours to ensure a seamless rollout. And, to the direction of our Co-Executive Directors, Russ and Cheryl Burke. The evening’s success is a direct result of your energy and passion for MCFEE!

If you were the successful bidder of an item and still need to pick it up, they will be available after 10am Monday at Myer’s Furniture in Manheim. If you have any questions, please contact Cheryl Burke at cburke@mcfee4kids.org.

The MCFEE 2014 Dinner Auction Is Almost Here!

Everything is being readied for this “best ever” event.  Hundreds of unique items, services and packages are numbered and categorized.  All it needs is YOU.  For those who already bought their tickets, Thank You, and see you Saturday!

Can’t make Saturday’s event?  Not to worry, you can still be part of this 11th annual event!  Here’s how:   Join us and others for online bidding two days before the Saturday’s event.

Starting very early Thursday morning (March 27) at 12:10 am, non-attendees and attendees alike can visit http://bidpal.net/mcfeeauction2014  using any internet connected computer or smart device.  There you can preview all Silent Auction items.  There’s a link to show you how BidPal works.  You can register and place bids on those items.  If you attended last year’s auction, your registration information will still be in BidPal but you will have an opportunity to update as needed, and mark yourself as active to bid (credit card is required).

Online bidding will be open from 12:10 am Thursday through Midnight on Friday 3/28. From Midnight until 9 am on Saturday morning, the site will be unavailable to allow BidPal port over maintenance.  At 9 am, the site will re-open and bidding can resume.  BidPal bidding will continue right up to 8:30 pm when the Silent Auction closes for all bidders.

Attendees will continue to enjoy the LIVE auction, while non-attendees can proceed on their devices to check-out and complete their transaction.  BidPal emails you a receipt.  If a non-attendee wins any item, it will be taken to Myer’s Furniture for you to pick up during normal business hours, starting Monday 3/31. Presentation of your receipt will get you your winnings.

The Manheim Central Foundation for Educational Enrichment appreciates all the hard work of dozens of volunteers, the many generous donors who commit time, money and items, and all those who support us through their auction participation.  Together all of us are “Fostering Excellence in Education” for benefit of the students of the Manheim Central School District!

Still have a question…we’re just an email away…“Click here to send a message”.
