About the Gala

The annual gala is Team Survivor's biggest, most important fundraiser of the year! We rely on this event to fund approximately half of our operating budget, and given the challenges that this extended pandemic has presented for our organization, we are drawing on the collective strength of our incredible community to ensure that TSNW's programs and classes can continue to empower, uplift and inspire women cancer survivors for decades to come!

Bidding Tips

We want to make sure your virtual gala experience is smooth and memorable, so here are a few tips to help you feel confident when you "raise" that virtual paddle!

  1. Be sure to register early. Once you have filled out the short form by clicking the REGISTER NOW button, you should receive an email confirmation as well as your unique bidder number. It takes about one minute and is free!
  2. Check your email/texts. Important information will be sent to registered guests via email and text messages, so please CLICK "YES" FOR TEXT NOTICES. These communications are designed to help you stay informed and up to date before and during the event. For example, you will get a notification if you are outbid on a Silent Auction item, giving you the chance to up your bid! Your contact information will not be shared with outside parties.
  3. Purchase your Golden Ticket! A TSNW Gala favorite is back! Be sure to purchase one of our 100 Golden Tickets for $50 and be entered to win your choice of one of our Live Auction items - which are expected to bid at over $1,000. Tickets go on sale September 20th. Purchase early before they sell out. The winner will be chosen during the virtual gala, so be sure to tune in to win!
  4. Watch the gala and bid in the live auction, all on one device. This is different than last year - you will watch the live event here - through ClickBid. A computer offers the best viewing experience. If using a phone or tablet, keep the device vertical to see the video and auction items at the same time. If you prefer to use two devices, to see the screen larger, we recommend opening your link on both your computer and your phone. Expand the livestream video on your larger device and bid on your smaller device. Make sure your smaller device is muted. Meeting as a small group? Use a large screen to watch the video stream together, while everyone uses their individual phones to bid.
