Are you having a plated dinner?

Where will I sit? 

There will be seating around the main hall for up to 80 guests. There will also be seating on the outside patio.

Will there be a Live Auction this year? 

Yes, there will be a live auction portion of our event this year as well as virtual access to our silent auction items and our “Fund-a-Need” portion of our event, so that individuals can support programming near and dear to their hearts.

What is mobile bidding? 

Text2Bid Mobile bidding allows you to bid on auction items using your own mobile device. You can access the auction before September 22 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.

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.

What if I cannot make the event? Can I still bid on auction items? 

Absolutely! You can still access the auction online.

When can I start bidding on items? 

The Silent Auction items will be open to begin bidding on September 21 at 6:00 p.m.

Where do I put in a credit card to bid? 

You will put payment information into Text2Bid. You will “check out” and pay through Text2Bid the night of the event. You will see everything you have purchased in an itemized receipt.

What if I am having problems the night of the event? Who do I call? 

Please reach out to the management team at the registration tables during the event. 

What if I just want to donate to support Easterseals Massachusetts? 

You can click here to donate to our many underfunded and non-funded programs. 

What do the proceeds for this event support? 

The proceeds raised from this event go directly to Easterseals Massachusetts programs and services. Many of our programs including Camp, Accessible Martial Arts, College Navigator, Veterans program, and our new Assistive Technology Mobile Van are underfunded and rely heavily on our annual Empowerment Celebration to continue bringing these services to our many communities throughout Massachusetts.
