How do I view the Gala presentation/register for auction?

To make the gala experience more convenient for our guests, our gala presentation live stream and auction is at the same place: HandBid!

We recommend viewing HandBid on your computer or screencasting to your television (if your television has that capability), so that the presentation is displayed larger.

Step 1: Navigate to HandBid.
Click the button below.


Step 2: Click ‘login‘ at the top of your screen to register to the event.
Step 3: Voila! Well done. Enjoy your time looking through our exciting auctions until the show starts. Once the live stream is available, you will be automatically notified on your screen (see the image below), click Watch Now. You will be able to view auction and watch the presentation simultaneously.
Want to use your phone? Click here (Android) or here (Iphone) to download Handbid app.
