The Car Party silent auction is all online and open to the public. You must register to bid on both the Stenzel Auction site and as a bidder for the Car Party auction within their site.

Auction Policies

  • The auction opens Wednesday, June 24 at 8 a.m. CST.

  • The auction begins to close on Sunday, June 28 at 5 p.m. CST. Each auction package will have its own countdown to close, so you'll need to pay attention to when an item you are interested in will close. Packages with multiple bidders during the final minutes will have additional time added to the auction.

  • Bidders must input a valid credit card during the registration process in order to bid.

  • Winning bids will automatically have a 3.5% credit card fee applied to the total invoice at the conclusion of the auction. Keep this in mind when making your final bids. Cash and check payments are not accepted unless you have made special arrangements.

  • Winning items will not be mailed. Please plan to pick up your item(s) in the St. Malachy school parking lot on Wednesday, July 1 from 5-7 p.m.
