Q: I purchased a ticket, but can no longer attend the event. Can I get a refund or give my ticket to someone else?  
A: Tickets are not refundable, but they are transferable. To transfer your ticket, simply pass your physical ticket on to the person you would like to attend in your place. They will also need to register, which is recommended they do prior to event
day, but can also be done on-site.

Q: What is the difference between purchasing a ticket and registering?
A: A ticket purchase gets you into the event itself with all of the benefits of food, beverages, entertainment and more. A registration simply registers you to participate in the silent auction. You do not have to have a ticket to register for the silent auction, but you do need a ticket to attend the event.

Food and Beverage Vendors

Q: How does my business become a vendor at Toast to the Triangle?
A: We give first right of refusal to previous participants in Toast to the Triangle. Sometime in January, if there is space available, it will open to other businesses in the Triangle. Contact us at to learn about how to become involved and put your name on the list for next year's event.

Registering for Auction

Q: I purchased tickets for myself and my spouse. Do we both still need to register to participate?
A: When you purchase a ticket, you are automatically registered to bid; however, your spouse has not been registered. You will need to decide if you would like to bid together on the same profile or separately. If you would like to bid together, then you are done! At the event please come to check in and we can attach a second phone to your bidding profile if needed. If you are planning on bidding separately, then please follow the registration link to register the second profile.

Q: I received pre-paid tickets from another guest or sponsor, what do I do now?
A: Be sure to bring your ticket to check-in the evening of the event. All guests are required to pre-register for the event; you can do so at this registration link to expedite the check-in process the evening of the event.

How to Bid

Q: What do I need to know about bidding?
A: All bidding will be conducted on your smartphone or through an iPad available at the event.  There will be many trained assistants at the Auction to facilitate the use of
smart phone or iPad bidding, as well as answer any questions you have. 

Q: Will I know if I am outbid on an item, or if I won an item?
A: You will be notified
a text message and an email if you have been outbid on items. When the silent auction closes, you will also receive a text message and email if you won any items!
