What Is A Quarter Auction:
Each vendor will display items for bid for guests to see. When the auction begins, auctioneer gives a description, retail value, and how many quarters are needed to bid per item.
If interested in the item, place bid in container on the table and hold up a numbered paddle.
When all bids are collected, the auctioneer will draw a number. If the number on a raised paddle matches the number drawn then that person wins the item, if the auctioneer draws a number and that paddle is not raised another will be drawn until there is a winner.
One paddle per ticket purchased (additional paddles are available for $5).
