    Show off your business, spotlight a new product, or educate guests about your organization by incorporating one of the following categories related to the theme!
    1- Favorite Artist or Group
    2- Favorite Song
    3- Favorite Genre
    (Classical, Blues, Country, Rock ‘n Roll, Jazz, Pop, Opera, Gospel, etc.... the options are endless)

    *We encourage you to keep the theme in mind while planning the decorations as well as creative ways to promote your business to event attendees.
    *Centerpieces must not be taller than 24 inches as to not interfere with guest’s view of the stage.
    *Please remember that since this is a dinner event, our guests will need to have room to eat.  Please leave a clear 12-inch path around the perimeter of the table for place settings.  You are welcome to incorporate your own napkins, chargers, and/or placemats, but those should be the only items within the outer 12 inches of the table.
    *Most table decorators provide their own tablecloth. If you need a tablecloth, please let us know as we will have a few extra black or white tablecloths on hand.
    *Many businesses choose to bring gift items to leave at each place for the guests to take home (to remind them of your business).
    *Please be clear in designating which items the guests can take and which decorations you want to keep.  We don’t advise the use of priceless décor on the tables, even if well marked.
    * If you plan to provide wine or other alcoholic beverage as a decoration/gift on your table, in addition to having a label on each bottle that clearly states MUST NOT BE CONSUMED ON SITE, each bottle must also be in a gift sack, clear box or clear plastic bag and sealed/tied closed at the top. Due to City Limits being a private club, TABC does not allow opening or consumption of any outside alcohol in the facility so they have asked us to make sure all bottles are labeled and enclosed.
    *If you have something that you want to light up or move, it must be battery-powered. No electricity will be available for any table decorations.
    *Please note that table decorating is an opportunity to promote your business or organization.
    *No political advertising will be allowed.

    Tables that seat 10 are 72 inches in diameter. (You will have 48 inches in diameter in the center of the table to decorate)
    Tables that seat 8 are 60 inches in diameter.  (You will have 36 inches in diameter in the center of the table to decorate)

    *Your card will not be automatically charged at the end of the auction until you choose that option, so if you prefer to pay by cash or check, we can adjust your preference at check out.
    You can ‘watch items’ to see how high the bid is going, get text or email notifications when you are outbid, or let the computer do your bidding for you by setting a max bid on items you can’t live without!

    The online auction site will be viewable all week, including throughout the event Friday evening, and all bidders will get a notification when the auction closes.
