We invite you to be our guest for an evening you won’t soon forget. The 7th Annual Challenge Your Fashion event gives you the opportunity to make a tremendous contribution to children with special needs right here in our community. What’s more, it promises to be a good time with silent and live auctions, high fashion, celebrity appearances, fine dining, dancing and more.

Here’s the planned schedule for the exciting evening.
Text bidding for our silent auction is back again this year!
Instead of having the old paper bidding silent auction system, you will bid with your cell phone or from one of our iPads through the Qtego system. All you have to do is set up your account when you register and in a few seconds you will receive a confirmation from Qtego and you are ready to start texting your bids. Start off by viewing the items displayed around the room or listed in your silent auction booklet and text the 3 digit item number with the whole dollar amount. Qtego will immediately respond to confirm if you are the highest bidder. If you get outbid, you will receive a text message that you have been outbid, including the bid you must make to again be the highest bidder. You will then need to rebid with the amount to be the highest bidder again. You will continue to bid until the auction is closed and you have WON the item.
You can also set a maximum bid that will keep bidding for you to that maximum amount just enter the item number, your maximum bid amount, and the letter M to indicate maximum you are willing to bid.
To check the status on ALL your items reply to any Qtego text with the word STATUS and send. You will receive a text listing all the items on which you are the current high bidder.
At the close of the auction you will receive a text if you win those items you have been bidding on during the evening.
Dress for the evening is considered “Favorite Saturday Night Attire” which means anything from jeans to dresses to suits…just come to have a good time and be comfortable.
Hotel accommodation information will be announced shortly.
