What’s a quarter auction and how do you play? Each ticket holder will receive one paddle with a number on it and one raffle ticket. Auction items will be displayed for two quarters each. You place two quarters in the middle of the table for EACH paddle you want to play. Place all paddles “in play” up in the air. If your paddle number is called, you WIN! All quarters are collected after each play. Vendors like (Tupperware, Scentsy, Thirty-One, Premier Jewelry and more) will put up items to bid on.
