Silent Auction Launches Wednesday, November 24th
We are so excited to finally be celebrating together again as Las Floristas welcomes back the annual Holiday Luncheon! We are preparing for a wonderful day together full of shopping boutique vendors, a Champagne Salon Raffle, a delicious meal together, and a silent auction. This year we are trying something new and the silent auction will launch online on November 24th. This will give everyone an opportunity to bid on items and raise much needed funds for Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center and the Las Floristas Pediatric Clinic Programs.
You do not need to be attending the in person event to participate in the virtual auction. You will need to register on our auction site in order to place bids (and be notified if you are outbid or win an item!).
If you have any questions about the event please contact the co-chairs:

A few notes on the bidding process:
Like eBay, you can enter a maximum amount you are willing to bid on an item. This is called proxy bidding. To place a max bid – but let the system bid for you, check the ”Bid for me” check box before placing your bid.
If you would like to place a bid that is higher than the next valid bid, just make sure the Use proxy bidding check box is not checked. Your bid will be placed as the full amount immediately.
Some items may have a Buy-It-Now price. If you want to buy the item immediately at the buy it now price, simply check the Buy it now check box and click the Buy It Now button.
In the case of tie bids, the person who entered the bid first wins. If your max bid is equal to the Buy-It-Now price but you place it as a proxy bid, someone else may still win that item by using the Buy-It-Now feature. If you are willing to pay the Buy-It-Now price, you should do so immediately to keep from losing that item.
