Bid farewell to paper bid sheets and hovering over items as an auction ends to protect your bid. Say hello to BidPal, a wireless bidding device that will be featured at this year’s One Hope Ball on November 7, 2015!
With BidPal, guests at this year’s One Hope Ball will be able to:
– Bid from anywhere
– Receive outbid alerts
– Watch your favorite items
– Place maximum bid amounts
– View items with no bids
– Receive instant notification of items won
Before the One Hope Ball even starts, you’ll get a text on your smartphone with a link to the auction where you’ll be able to view every auction item — item description, bid increments, photo and donor information. You can browse the silent auction area as well as view items on your personal smartphone and bid from anywhere at any time during the event.
During registration, One Hope Ball guests who have not RSVP’d with their smart phone information, will receive a card with instructions on how to do so. There will also be volunteers available throughout the night to help out with any questions or concerns you may have.
Want to learn how to BidPal before the event?
Check out the below BidPal training video to walk through the functionality and capabilities of this new technology.
We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
