The BSS Gala is an annual event designed to bring the BSS community together and raise funds for our school. This is our largest fundraising event of the year and all monies raised are directly put to use to help support the cost of education at Blessed Sacrament School. 2. When will tickets be available? Tickets go on sale February 3, 2020 and can be purchased by visiting https://one.bidpal.net/bssauction2020. The deadline to purchase tickets is March 18th. Tickets will not be available at the door so please make sure to purchase early. 3. What is the attire for the evening? Cocktail or formal attire. All guests are welcome to add some 80s flair..think neon, big hair...you get it. 4. Where will I sit? Even though we are not having a plated dinner this year, we will still have reserved seating for everyone. Guests can request seating at the time of ticket purchase. Table assignments will be made based on these requests and communicated to guests at time of arrival. If you are new to the school or do not have specific seating requests, we will make sure to place you with other parents/guests with similar aged children or same grade/class. 6. What is mobile bidding? As in past years, we will once again be using Bidpal for our online auction. Mobile bidding allows you to bid on auction items using your own mobile device. You will be able to access the auction prior to March 10th to preview the auction catalog, place your bids and set your max bid amounts. At that point you will receive notifications once you have been outbid! Additional information will be sent out regarding mobile bidding as we get closer to the event date. 7. Can I leave the event before the auction closes? Yes! That is one of the benefits of using mobile bidding. You can leave at any point during the night (but we hope you stay!). Once the auction is closed, you will receive a text with a link to click on to see if you won an item. You will then need to log in and proceed with payment. 8. What if I can not make the event, can I still bid on auction items? Yes, you can bid on silent auction items! With mobile bidding, you don’t have to attend the event to bid on auction items. By accessing our auction website –you can bid on items from https://one.bidpal.net/bssauction2020 anywhere! This link can also be shared with family and friends. The more bids we receive, the more money we raise for our school! However, please note that some items will only be available to those who attend the event, so we hope you will join us for a fun and exciting evening out.
