    Gala Quick Start Guide

    SMART PHONE BIDDING – Mobile Bidding will start earlier this year!  A link will be sent on Thursday, December 3, to the cell number found in your Gala account.  Be sure that you have your cell number registered here:
    NO CHECK-IN REQUIRED THE NIGHT OF THE EVENT FOR THOSE GUESTS WHO RECEIVE THEIR PERSONALIZED BIDPAL LINK BEFORE THE EVENT.  Your table number will be displayed on your phone.  Feel free to come to the BidPal Help Desk at the event if you need any help or don’t receive your link.

    Bring your FULLY CHARGED SMARTPHONE to the Gala to bid using Bidpal, an interactive, wireless silent auction bidding system. You can keep track of your bids wherever you roam and never miss your chance to win a silent auction item. Bidders without smart phones can have the same mobile bidding experience with a BidPal mobile device that you can obtain at the BidPal Help Desk. There are a limited number of BidPal devices available (only 20), therefore you are highly encouraged to bring your SMART PHONE. Couples can bid on 2 separate devices using the same bidder number.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Where to Park? Please park in the beautiful new parking garage on campus! Overflow street parking and other garages are available nearby.
    Where to Enter? Enter Gonzaga through Dooley Hall.  You will see the wonderful transformation of the school into a true Miracle on Eye Street.
    Can I buy tickets at the door? NO. We anticipate another sell out event and will not be able to sell tickets at door. Don’t wait to RSVP.
