EES PTO Online Auction 2014

has begun!

Ladies, Gentleman, EES Family and Friends - GET YOUR BID NAME ON!

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 fun!

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 javascript - both are required to log in and browse the auction. If your security settings are not 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 mobile devices. If you have trouble, use Firefox or GoogleChrome on your computer.

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 sly.

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!

Please contact Amanda Kuhl at essexptoauction@gmail.com with questions.

Thank you!
