Our staff will process all bids received and update the Auction website to reflect Current High Bids by 5pm each weekday. (Bids placed on holidays will be updated the following day)

We will do our best to record all bids in a timely fashion Monday – Friday, 9am - 5pm. All bids received between 5pm Friday and 8:30am Monday will be posted on the Auction website by noon each Monday.

Bidding will officially close at 5pm on Tuesday, December 17, 2013.

Winners will be contacted by phone. All items must be picked up in person at the Altoona Mirror, 301 Cayuga Ave, Altoona, after the winner is contacted.
Payment for items can be made by cash, personal check, money order, or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express).
All proceeds raised through the NIE Online Auction fundraiser will benefit our local NIE Program and will be used to supply daily copies of the Altoona Mirror to area classrooms.
