The 2017 Big Strike Auction was a Success!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the 42nd Big Strike Auction this year, whether you helped set up, came to the event, bid online, donated an item, or contributed with a donation, ad, or sponsorship.  With the help of all those involved, the Verdugo Hills Council raised over $60,000 to further the mission of Scouting in our community.  Below are some great pictures from the event.

Big Strike Auction Bidding Starts Today!

Can’t make it to the auction?  Are you coming to the auction but want to get a head start on bidding today?  Either way, it’s time to sign up to bid at bigstrike17.auction-bid.org.  Visit bigstrike17.auction-bid.org in your browser or text “bigstrike17” to 24700 to begin the sign-up process.  The Big Strike Auction is coming up Saturday, September 16th, but remember, you don’t need a ticket to the event to register to bid.

When you log in to the auction site, you’ll be able to bid on silent auction items, buy a Golden Ticket, and see all the amazing live auction items.  Plus, if you are already registered before you arrive at the auction, your check-in will be quick and easy.  We’ve got all kinds of exciting items that you won’t want to miss out on, so get a head start on bidding today.

If you can’t make it to our auction, this site provides several opportunities to support the auction and the Verdugo Hills Council.  You can quickly and easily donate using your card.  You can purchase a Golden Ticket and get a one in one-hundred chance to get your choice of any live auction item before the auction even begins (for only $100!).  Many of the live auction items are worth several thousand dollars.  And of course, you can bid on many of the silent auction items starting today.

If you are coming to the auction, make sure you purchase your event ticket at register.vhcbsa.org in addition to registering at bigstrike17.auction-bid.org.  You can still use all the features of the bidding site starting today, but you also have a few exclusive opportunities.  At the auction, you can bid on all the live auction items, but don’t forget you can see them all today at bigstrike17.auction-bid.org.  There are also exclusive silent auction items that you can see at bigstrike17.auction-bid.org which will only be available during the event.

Text “bigstrike17” to 24700 or visit bigstrike17.auction-bid.org today!
