WHAT IS A SILENT AUCTION? WHO BENEFITS?
It’s great fun and you can get some real bargains on exotic large format bottles (double magnums!) of premium wines, wine country trips and lots of other great items.  100% of the net proceeds goes to Foodbank of Santa Barbara County to feed hungry families locally. In a Silent Auction, there is no annoying auctioneer and no pressure. Every item is laid out for your inspection. You casually inspect, read descriptions, and if you want, write down a bid on the bid sheet. When time is up at the end of the festival, if you have the highest written bid – you win that item (s)! You pay the bid amount and take your item home with you. Simple and fun!
