2021 Gift Basket Online Auction
How It Works
Each year, our annual Garden Symposium includes a gift basket raffle. This year, due to the pandemic, we are not able to present our Garden Symposium, but we are still offering the many beautiful gift baskets normally raffled off at the Garden Symposium as an online auction.
The overall fundraiser will run from March 9-28
32 gift baskets total
2 auctions per week
5 to 6 baskets per auction
Each auction runs for 3 days (Tuesdays at 7 am through Thursdays at 9 pm & Fridays at 7 am through Sundays at 9 pm)
Winners can pick up their basket(s) on Saturdays & Sundays from 12-4 pm. Winners can contact us if they need to schedule a pickup time outside of those hours.
What We Are Using
The online auction platform we are using to conduct our auctions is called 32auctions. You do not need to have an account with 32auctions in order to view our auctions, but you must create an account if you wish to bid. If you plan on bidding, we recommend you sign up for an account now, so you’re ready to go!
When you create an account, you will be asked to create a “display name”. Keep in mind that the display name you choose will be visible in the bid history which is public.
Viewing the Items Up for Bid
Each of our 3-day auctions is listed as a separate auction, accessible only through a direct link.
Click the heart icon on an auction item to add that item to your “watchlist” so you can easily return to it again for easy bidding. Click the star icon at the top of the page to view all the bids you’ve placed.
When you click on an auction item, you can view a description of the item and see who donated the item. Each item up for auction will have a different starting bid amount and different minimum bid increments.
We are only offering pickup for these gift baskets. Winners can pick up their basket(s) at Beech Creek Gardens on Saturdays & Sundays from 12-4 pm. Winners can contact us if they need to schedule a pickup time outside of those hours. We are located at 11929 Beech St NE, Alliance, OH 44601.
To pay for your item, use the convenient online checkout offered by 32auctions. Just follow the invoice/payment link provided in your "winning bid" confirmation email. You may pay using a debit/credit card or a PayPal account. Please note that all payments are ultimately processed through PayPal, so you will receive a payment confirmation email from both 32auctions and PayPal regardless of how you paid, and your payment will show on your bank statement as PayPal. You may also pay for your item in-person at the time of pickup, using cash, check or debit/credit card.
