Welcome to the Cocktails with Cole online auction. Even if you are not attending the event, the NHSO staff would be more than glad to bid for you in your absence! Here's how:
• The minimum is the least amount you must offer to bid.
• You may pay less than your maximum bid if you win. To win an auction you actually pay only the incremental amount more than the next highest bid-even if your maximum bid was hundreds of dollars more.
• The auction closes on November 10 at 9:30pm. If your bid wins, you must buy. We will contact you Monday, November 12 to let you know if you are a winner.
