What's Quarter Paddle Auction?

A quarter auction is part raffle, part auction, part fundraiser party. It works a bit like bingo. When you arrive, you will be given a numbered paddle for a donation. This paddle will have a corresponding number which will be put into the drawing basket.
You can purchase a second paddle or more for a donation, if you wish.
Each time an item comes up for bid that you choose to take a chance and bid on, you will place the required number of your quarters for each paddle being played, in a container on your table then hold your paddle(s) in the air. Bid amounts vary according to the price of the product being auctioned:
Product Value Range with Quarter Bid Amount
$10-$24 = 1 Quarter
$25-$40 = 2 Quarters
$41-$60 = 3 Quarters
$61+ = 4 Quarters
When all bids are closed, and the quarters have been collected, a number will be drawn from the container of numbers and the person whose paddle number matches the one called is the winner. If you did not bid on this particular item (leaving your paddle face down on the table) AND your number is called, you simply yell out “NO BID”. Then another number can be drawn to get a winner. After a winner is confirmed, they will move on to the next item.
Extra paddles may also be purchased if you choose to have better odds at winning particular items. (ex. an item is a 1 quarter bid - you have 2 paddles and want 2 chances to win that item – you simply put two bids in your table’s container of .50 cents and then put BOTH paddles in the air.)

ALL you need now is LOTS of Quarters to have LOTS of FUN!!!!
