READY, SET, BID!
EES PTO Online Auction 2014
Ladies, Gentleman, EES Family and Friends - GET YOUR BID
The EES PTO Online Auction kicks off Tuesday, April 8 @ 4pm
and runs through Thursday, April 17th @ 9pm. That's 10 whole days of bidding
To prepare for Tuesday’s kick off, there are 3 things you
need to do:
1. SHARE - get ready to forward the Essex PTO Auction
website (www.essexpto.com) with your friends and family outside of the EES
community who like to shop and get great deals on spa treatments, septic
pumpouts, fine dining, casual fare, home improvement services, gardening help, and
more. Anyone and everyone can bid on our auction items. Last year we had biders
from across Cape Ann and the United States.
2. SET your browser - to accept cookies and enable
compatible, the program will send you a message to adjust your computer's
security settings. The auction site does not support old Internet Explorer 6 or

3. CHOOSE YOUR BID NAME - think of your ‘bid identity’ –
the fun part! When you log in to the auction on April 8 @
4pm(www.essexpto.com), you will need to register and choose your bid name. It's time to think of your best bid name and get
ready to go get those items! Remember - If you register using your own name, your
friends and neighbors will know who they are bidding against. Many users have
found that it's best to create a "bid nickname" so you can bid on the
Creative bid names from last year's auction included:
Bids4Kids (that's what we like to hear!) Happy Sunshine
Hathcock (Google it, too funny!)
Amelia Pond (A scifi reference perhaps?) IWantThat!
just looking (yeah, right!) InItToWinIt
So get ready and think of your creative bid name! We will
be in touch when the auction opens on April 8 @ 4pm!
