Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Quarter Auction?
A Quarter Auction is a fun and fast-paced evening where you bid 1-4 quarters to win a variety of items. Read a detailed breakdown of how a Quarter Auction works here.
How do I pre-order paddles?
You can pre-order paddles right from this website via Paypal. See above.
Do I have to pre-order?
Pre-ordering is not required, however we do have a limited number of spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. Plus, we offer a discount on pre-orders.
Why should I buy more than one paddle?
By having more than one paddle, you can put multiple bids in for items you really want. That gives you more chances to win!
You must put in quarters for each paddle you raise. You do not have to raise all of your paddles, however only the numbers on the paddles you raise are eligible to win an item.
Can I bring food/beverage?
We will have food available for sale. (menu coming soon) NO ALCOHOL as this is a school event.
What are the items available for bidding?
Check out our prizes post to see what we had for the 2019 Quarter Auction. This page will be updated with the 2020 options closer to the Auction date.
Will I need to bring quarters?
We will have quarters on site, but you are encouraged to bring your own.
What if I run out of quarters?
We will have quarters on site to cash out for bills if needed.
