The Vine - Why a Fundraiser?
We are so excited that you are interested in our Branches of The Vine event!
What to expect: Our in-person portion is going to be beautiful if the weather holds! We will have many tables out along the terraces at Baron Bluff that lead down to the Gazebo, all the way from The View over to the beloved mansion. We will also have tables out on The View that overlooks the city! And, there will be many tables inside. We hope this will allow us plenty of room to spread out even though we know it may look like we have lots of empty spaces. We have missed the fellowship with our supporters, and we hope this will be a way to reconnect. The Still Waters band will play beautiful Blue Grass music for us from the Gazebo. Narvell has agreed to cater, and that, in and of itself, will be worth your trip. We love Narvell! We will have a live auction that will feature many opportunities. Please join us now to pray for beautiful weather. If there is any change in plan, we will email you perhaps even the day of the event.
We feel blessed to be in ministry, and we appreciate your connection with us. This fundraiser is important in our operational expenses each year and allows us to continue providing scholarship assistance to those in need.
Thank you! Please buy a ticket for yourself, for your closest friend and for your family members. Come one – come all. We look forward to seeing you. With heart felt gratitude, all of the staff of The Vine.
A few details:
Navigating: The button below will take you to our Virtual Auction, or our Virtual “SHOP”.
Create Account Before Bidding: You will be asked to create an account when you try to make your first bid. Please enter your phone number (with country) and your email address, and you will receive text and email notifications about your involvement.
Bidding: “Custom Bid”: If you like, you can enter a “Custom Bid”. This is the highest bid you would like to place. If you get outbid, the website will enter a bid for you incrementally up to the “Custom Bid” that you enter. “Direct Bid”: You can also place a “Direct Bid” which is the next incremental bid that can be accepted. “Bid doesn’t seem to take”: If you place a bid that does not seem to stick, it may be because you were automatically outbid by another bidder. “Bids”: Scroll to the bottom of any item and take a look at the “Bids”.
Win and Lose Notification: You will receive notification that you won, and you will receive a notification if you lost.
Payment: If you stay on the auction item that you were bidding, there may be a “Pay Now” button that appears. This appears to only happen for one item if you are bidding on several. After the website has time to process, which could be several hours, you will receive an email that will have a link to pay. If you are trying a link it should take you back into The Vine’s site. If not, please wait and try the link later. Or…
Contact Us: Please call our office with any questions. 256-270-7399. Or, reply to any email from the website. We will be monitoring emails. We will happily address any concerns.
