Are you ready for the Bandstand Battle Gala? Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions. See you soon!
How do I watch the broadcast?
The broadcast will be shown on the same page as your bidding page. The link will be re-sent on Saturday to remind you to access it. While on the page, as soon as the broadcast begins, it will appear on your screen automatically. If it seems delay, refresh your screen.
The Pre-Show begins at 7:00 pm and the live broadcast begins at 7:30 pm. We recommend you plan to attend beginning at 7, as there are bid tutorials, event information, fun facts, and messages from several KOTG friends that you will want to see!
Can I watch the broadcast on another device?
Hosting a small viewing party and want to watch the broadcast on a larger screen? You can either use a HDMI cable to connect your laptop to your TV or use a streaming option with a Smart TV. Options include screen mirroring, using Google Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire or Apple TV. You are able to access your bidding page and broadcast from multiple sources; for example, watch the broadcast on your tv and bid from your phone.
Where's my Bid Paddle? How do I bid in the Live Auction?
The Live Auction will be conducted similarly to an in-person event. The auctioneer will start by describing the package being auctioned. Meanwhile, on your tablet, phone, or computer, the current item will open for bidding and you will see the amount to choose to place a bid. (please note: if the item is delayed, choose the "BID LIVE" button to refresh your screen.) The auctioneer will instantly see the bids as they are placed by each bidder and will call for the next available increment until the package is sold. After pronouncing it "sold," he will proceed to the next item.
What is Dedicated Giving?
After the Live Auction, there will be a giving opportunity during the Dedicated Giving to make tax-deductible donations to support the programming of Kids On The Go. This portion of the event operates in the same manner: the Auctioneer will lead you through the giving levels. Thank you for your support of the Kids On The Go mission to provide therapies for the children with special needs.
How do I vote for my favorite band?
Determine which band will be the winner of the Bandstand Battle by making a donation to Kids On The Go under the band of choice's name. There will be a donation item in each of the 3 finalist's names, you can choose that donation item and make a donation in any amount. The band who accrues the most in votes (donations) will win!
Don't forget to fully charge your phone or tablet, as well, so you are ready to bid!
