Many Ways to Bid in the Silent Auction

Browse from the comfort of home, or see the items up close: Shoppers have a choice at this year's Solano Wine & Food Jubilee's Silent Auction.

The online portion of the silent auction opened for bidding on May 1, and runs through May 16. Then, items are available for up close and personal viewing at the Jubilee itself, starting at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 19.

Just as in years' past, the silent auction will offer an array of elaborate gift baskets, tickets to highly sought-after sporting events and exotic vacations or spa experiences, sparkly jewels, movie and sports memorabilia, bottles of award-winning wines or wine tasting tours, and all sorts of one-of-a-kind items.

But, those eager to snap up the best can put in their bids using a smartphone or computer, while sitting at home, on the bus or train, or in a coffee shop. Or, for those with a ticket to the Jubilee, bidding can be fast and furious in person on the night of the event.

All funds raised through the auction continue to support the programs of NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement, according to Brett Johnson, president of NorthBay Healthcare Foundation.
