How do I bid?

We use BidPal. Register when you purchase your tickets, and use your smartphone or tablet. You can browse auction items and bid anywhere at any time during the event. BidPal notifies you when you have been outbid, eliminating the need to constantly return to the silent auction area. Watch the bidding LIVE on the screens in the gym for a fun look at the most popular items and the bids!

Your own personal BidPal allows you to:

  • Bid anytime and from anywhere during the silent auction
  • See all item information and current bid status
  • Receive outbid alerts and re-bid
  • Personalize your “watch” items
  • View items won
How can I become a Sponsor?  

As a donor your name/business name will be seen by hundreds of HGP, alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends. Sponsorships begin at $250 for a contributing sponsor to $7500 for our Premiere Spiritan sponsor. For details and benefits click here.

How does the Tuition Raffle work and do I need to be present to win?

A minimum of 250 tickets must be sold for the raffle to be held. A maximum of 750 tickets will be sold. Drawing will be held at the end of the evening. Winner need not be present.

Where do the live or silent auction items come from?  

Many businesses have been loyal supporters of our auction and continue to donate each year. However, with so many schools and organizations requesting donations each year they are inundated with requests. We need the support of our HGP families to make a personal donation to either the silent or live auction using our “wish List” as a guide.
