Come have some fun! The Fort Pierce Woman's Club is hosting a Quarter Auction to support the programs provided by the UP Center. This is a great way to help our community by raising money as you WIN prizes, raffles, and products for mere quarters! A quarter auction is part raffle, part auction, part fundraiser and works a bit like bingo. When you arrive, you will purchase a numbered paddle for $1. You are welcome to purchase more than one to increase your chances of winning! Vendors will have items up for "auction". These items will be on display for about an hour after the doors open so you can explore and decide which items you're interested in. Once the auction begins, the announcer or one of the helpers will hold up the item that's up for bid and will announce whether the item is a "one quarter" or "two quarter" bid. If you're interested in bidding, you'll put one or two quarters (whatever was announced) for EACH paddle you intend to bid with. If you have two paddles and decide to only bid with one, you only pay .25 BUT you MUST indicate whcih number you will use. A worker will be walking from table to table with a bucket to collect bids. The announcer will then draw a number to find a winner. If they draw your number and you had bid on the item, hooray! You just won an awesome item at a great price! Be sure to bring quarters, but if you forget or run out, there will be rolls of quarters available for purchase at the event. If it all sounds complicated, relax. Everything will be explained and you'll catch on in no time and you'll love it! Bring friends and have fun!
