How does the auction work?

The first week tables are available, only whole tables will be available for purchase through the  auction. The highest bidder when the week-long auction closes will get their first choice table of 10 out of all the chefs tables; second highest bidder will get to choose any table they choose that the highest bidder didn’t take already; and so on. The only way someone can ensure they get the table they want is to be the highest bidder! After the auction closes, remaining table seat tickets will be available individually. Community members will either purchase tickets based on the delicious menu choices or they will try to get a seat at a specific celebrity chef’s table!

The only way you can ensure you get the table with the chef and menu of your choice is to be the highest bidder in the auction!

When can I buy?

  • The first week tickets are available only whole tables of 10 diners will be available to purchase through the auction.
  • Listen to the 93.1FM for the status of the whole table bids OR Embrace’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/embracewi) to see if your bid is still the winning bid!
  • Individual ticket sales for remaining table seats will begin following the auction.

Where can I buy?

  • During the auction week beginning Monday, August 15th, 2016, call Embrace at 715-532-6976 to place your bid on a whole table. Listen to 93.1 FM or go to Embrace’s Facebook page for updates on the bids.
  • After the auction closes at 5pm on Friday, August 19, 2016, remaining table seat tickets will be sold at Embrace and Tee Away.
  • Dropping a check off at any of the Embrace office locations is the best way to pay for the table or seat. However, we do accept credit cards online or over the phone.

How much?

  • The auction bidding will start at $500 for a full table of 10 diners with minimum bidding increments of $50.
  • After the auction closes, remaining table seat tickets will be available individually.
  • There are only 10 seats available for each chef’s table.
