UPDATE: A Night of Smiles Art Auction & Silent Auction

September 24, 2021

The energy and art created by the kids served by our organization cannot be matched. Being at the event itself is an uplifting experience!
We hope you can join us for the event on Sunday, 10/3 from 1-4 pm at Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel, Lindle Rd, Harrisburg. Purchase your tickets by visiting this link https://one.bidpal.net/artsmiles or from your phone text ‘artsmiles’ to 243-725, then choose ‘Purchase Tickets’ from the menu, then Adult ticket for $40. Ticket holders will be treated to an Italian buffet, will be able to see our 140 silent auction items in person, and can participate in the exciting LIVE auction of children’s artwork.

If you are interested in placing a bid on the children’s artwork, but unable attend the live auction, contact Cheryl at Caitlins.Smiles@Comcast.net for more information about becoming a “Phantom Bidder”.

If you are unable to come to the in-person event, Caitlin’s Smiles welcomes you to participate in the on-line silent action from where ever you are. Our silent auction is online and can be access through your computer or mobile device. The access is similar to purchasing a ticket. Visit https://one.bidpal.net/artsmiles or from your phone text ‘artsmiles’ to 243-725. To register to be a bidder you will need to enter your name, contact and credit card information. To do this, you’ll want to go to ‘Purchase Tickets,’ then scroll down to ‘Bidding Access Only, add 1, then scroll down to ‘Next’ and then ‘Complete Purchase. In the upper right corner of your screen, you will see a person icon, click that, then click Account. Here you will be able to view or complete your profile and add your credit card. If you have participated in one of our previous fundraisers, your information may already be entered. If so, you may want to check to make sure your credit card has not expired. If it has, you’ll need to add in another credit card. Remember this, this is where your receipt will show up once the auction is closed and over. You’ll need your receipt to claim your items from the silent auction.

Our Silent Auctions can be previewed and bid on at this link:  or text’artsmiles’ to 243-725. While you don’t need to enter your information to view the items, you will need to if you want to bid.  If you are reading this prior to 9/26/201 at Noon, the auctions will be in preview mode. If it’s after Sunday, 9/26 at Noon, our auctions are open and taking bids. Bidders can set a max bid on items they are bidding on. Bidders will be notified if they are outbid on an item.

Bidding for the auction will close at 3:15 pm on Sunday, October 3rd.
