The 2017 Silent Auction is now open for bidding! There is truly something for everyone, and you can enjoy guilt-free shopping because the money raised supports our schools!
This year we’re opening the Silent Auction to our broader community, so you can participate even if you are not attending the Wine Auction. A credit card is required to place a bid and will be charged at the conclusion of the Silent Auction for all winnings. The Silent Auction will close at approximately 8:15pm on Saturday, June 3rd. All auction items must be claimed and picked up by the buyer at the Wine Auction, or by June 13, 2017 at the MBEF Office in Manhattan Beach (sorry, no shipping is available).
The Manhattan Wine Auction, now in its 23rd year, is the largest charity wine auction in Southern California, and raises funds for the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation. Hosted at the Manhattan Country Club, the Wine Auction is a sold out gala each year with approximately 2,000 guests. With fences and tennis nets removed, guests stroll through the grounds sampling the best in food and wine in a casual and festive party atmosphere. Silent auction tables are located throughout, and guests enjoy the convenience of mobile bidding from anywhere via their cell phones. The live auction and program occurs on Center Court where a stage is surrounded by sponsored tables, with chairs set up on the surrounding bleachers.
