We look forward to enjoying an evening full of food, friends, fun, and philanthropy with you. ​

What to Expect


All guests must enter through the main museum doors.


Cocktail dress or business casual are appropriate.


All guests must have a credential to enter the main museum floor or the Eagle Hangar. Your credential will include your bid and table number. If you have not received a credential or need to make a change to your credential, please visit the table that corresponds with the first letter of your last name in the museum lobby.

Mobile Bidding

There is no longer the need to hover over bid sheets hoping to be the winning bidder for your special lot. Bidding on the auctions or making a donation can all be accomplished using your mobile device. All you need to do is charge your phone and ensure your information is entered into the mobile bidding system. You will then have access to bid from your mobile device.

Many auction lots will be available for bid prior to the event, however if you have not registered on the bidding platform prior to the event, there will be bid assistants onsite who can guide you through registering, bidding, and donating from your mobile device. 

Please also note if you prefer not to raise your bid paddle during the special giving portion of the evening, you can enter your pledge via your mobile device or by flagging down one of the bid assistants. 

The auction lot list will be updated as new lots are confirmed; please check back to learn more about all of the exciting lots available.
