Most of the auction items will be on display at the PRGE information booth located in the Retrocade prior to the auction and will be moved to the auction hall prior to the auction dinner at 6:00 PM.

Add dinner to your auction experience!

For those who want an early peek at the auction items we are introducing catered dinner just before the auction, right in the auditorium! The dinner is optional: you can still attend the auction if you don't buy dinner.

  • Dinner is $50 per seat and includes dinner and dessert buffet and non-alcoholic beverages. Vegetarian and vegan options available.
  • The dinner buffet starts at 6:00 PM in the Portland Ballroom on the second floor. Dinner menu will be announced on this page soon.
  • Cash bar will be available with adult beverages for attendees 21 and older.
  • Dinner attendees get preferred seating at the auction and can preview the auction items between 6:00 PM and 7:00 PM before the room is opened to the public.
  • Great opportunity to meet PRGE VIPs in a casual setting!

There are a limited number of seats available for the dinner. Please use the dinner order form to request your seats and we will send you an invoice via PayPal once your order is received. Seating is assigned and we will seat your party together. Once your order is placed and paid, there are not refunds if you are unable to attend. You can transfer your seat to another person.

Submitting Items for the 2019 Auction

All PRGE vendors are invited to provide items for the live auction. We may also accept a limited number of items from non-vendors. Items will be authorized for inclusion in the auction at the discretion of the PRGE auction committee.

PRGE does not charge any commission or fees to sellers. It is the responsibility of the seller and winning bidder to complete their transaction after the completion of bidding. PRGE will communicate the seller's preferred form of payment to bidders prior to the auction start.

If you have an item you would like to include in the auction, visit the auction item submission form. PRGE staff will review all submissions and notify you if your item has been selected for auction. You must be present at the auction for your item to be auctioned.

The final list of items for auction is subject to change.
