Auction Events and COVID-19 – Rescheduling Recommended

With Governor DeWine’s Stay at Home order replaced by his Ohioans Protecting Ohioans recommendations, please consider the safety of your guests if you are sponsoring an upcoming auction event. First, determine if you are able to hold your event under CDC guidelines (group size 10 or less, social distancing, masks). If you feel you can provide a safe environment, next please contact your guests to determine their comfort level with attending your event. If any guests would prefer not to attend, we encourage you to err on the side of caution and reschedule your event. If you feel you cannot provide a safe environment and your event is coming up, please log in to the auction website, go to your event listing and use the “Email all” option to notify your guests that you will be rescheduling when conditions permit.

We encourage event hosts to update your event descriptions, especially the date, so that automatic reminder emails don't go out with incorrect info. We can help you do this - just email the auction team and we can make changes for you.

Thanks for your understanding and consider using Zoom or other online means to stay socially connected at a safe physical distance. Ohio's COVID-19 website is a good source of information about when these guidelines may be revised.
