Online Auction FAQ

What is the Chaparral PFC Online Auction?
The Chaparral PFC Online Auction is the PFC’s second-largest fundraiser, behind Donor Drive. Last year, the Chaparral PFC Online Auction raised over $90,000. The money raised directly funds instructional aides, technology, physical education, art, music and more. The Auction opens March 8th at 7 a.m. and closes March 17th at 10 p.m.
Who can bid on items?
With the exception of the “Chaparral Exclusives” section (which is for Chaparral families only), anyone can bid. In fact, our charity auction is viewed by over 600 local residents, in addition to close to 500,000 nationwide bidders through our online partner, Bidding For Good, at www.biddingforgood.com/chaparralauction.
How do I bid on an item?
Before the auction opens, create a Bidding for Good account at www.biddingforgood.com/chaparralauction. Make sure you enter a valid credit card into the secure site. When the Auction opens, you’ll be ready to bid!
What types of items are sold in the Auction?
Gift cards to restaurants, stores, spas, and hotels; tickets to sporting events, concerts, and plays; gift certificates to play places, museums and camps; and “Chaparral Exclusives” such as parties, unique teacher experiences, reserved parking spots and reserved seats to Chaparral events.
What are the Auction Parties I hear so much about?
These are fun experiences hosted by Chaparral families and open only to other Chaparral families. They are not sold in the typical auction format, but rather as a set number of “spots available.” They often sell out quickly!
