It's Athletic Auction Time!
Every child in the school has benefited from the yearly auction, as it was the main source for providing the multi-purpose turf field. There are days in which we have nearly 300 kids play on the field ranging from elementary P.E to baseball/softball teams, followed by soccer games at night.
The turf has been a blessing and funds are needed for maintenance as well as preparing for upgrades in future years. This year, the auction will help to pay off the new LED lighting installed this fall, replacing the 42-year-old original lights.
This year's silent auction will be online only. The auction will open at noon Friday (2/12) and will close at 10 p.m. Tuesday (2/16) , and can be accessed either online via https://events.handbid.com/auctions/ocs-football-auction-2021 or through the Handbid app available on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
If you choose to bid via the website, you will be able to browse the available items (we are adding more items each day) and register to bid. Once the auction opens, you will be notified that you can start bidding!
If you choose to bid via the App, you will need to go to either the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and download the Handbid App. Once you download the app, it will prompt you to create an account with Handbid. Please do this. Once you have created your account, you can search for upcoming auctions. Start typing Ouachita Christian School and you will see the OCS Football Auction 2021 come up. Select this auction and you will be prompted to either browse or register to bid.
In both cases, you will need to enter a credit or debit card to register to bid as this is the only way we can accept payment this year due to the online environment.
Thank you for your support!
