About Our Virtual Red Carpet Auction & Gala:

Here’s your chance to join fellow TMS parents for a glamourous, virtual affair from the comfort of your living room as we raise money for our amazing school!

 

There will be music, special guests, and a fun evening for all as we raise our virtual paddles for our Fund-a-Need and our Live Auction, hosted by Class of 2007 TMS Alum, John Bessolo! 

Step 1:  RSVP here for the Gala so you can receive your Zoom link to join us on the red carpet. Tickets are free however a ‘VIP Red Carpet Party Pack for 2’ is available for purchase.  

 

Step 2:  Register as a bidder for the online auction, which runs May 1-8.  Once registered you can also raise your paddle for our Fund-a-Need and Live Auction on May 7th.  

 

* Registration is automatic for guests who purchase a ‘VIP Red Carpet Party Pack’ or who already have accounts from previous auctions.  

 

* If you are new to Bidding for Good and RSVP for a free ticket, please create an account so you may bid in our online and Live auction and Fund-a-need.  

Step 3:  If you’re in the mood, get Glam!  Decorate your “zoom” space with some festive decorations, throw on a snappy chapeau, or layer on the jewels!   Remember, anything goes with sweatpants or pajama bottoms.  

 

Step 4:  Log in to the Gala’s Zoom Room at 6:00 pm on May 7th.  Guests who have RSVP’d will receive the link, their bidder number, and additional information via email the week before the event.
