Live Auction Online Pre-Bidding

Bid On the Gala Live Auction Items Before the Event!

UPDATE: all pre-bids were outbid at last night's Gala! Thank you!

How does the online pre-bidding work?

How This Works: To place an online bid for the 2016 Mountain Island Charter School's Gala Live Auction, please use the links below. In the "My Comment" field, write your bid amount (increments of $10.00 will be accepted). Only bids above the minimum bid will be valid.


The highest bid listed by 12:00PM on Friday, March 4, 2016 will become the 'Minimum Bid' at the Gala Live Auction on Saturday, March 5. If no one bids higher during the Live Auction, the person with the highest bid on this Sign Up Genius remains the top bidder and therefore wins the item/package.


Scroll down for item or package details.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - READ CAREFULLY!!

  • By placing an online bid on the Sign Up Genius, you are agreeing to pay for the item/package if you hold the highest bid at the close of the Gala Live Auction on Saturday, March 5.
  • The highest bidder on the online pre-bidding will be contacted for payment if and only if s/he remains the highest bidder at the close of the Live Auction.
  • You MUST include your name and bid amount on each bid. Not doing so will forfeit your bid.

About The Asbury...


Named in honor of Louis Asbury, Sr., the Charlotte architect who designed the Mayfair Manor—now The Dunhill Hotel—in 1929, The Asbury celebrates the best of what the South has to offer in ingredients, technique, creativity, and, of course, hospitality. The Asbury is a tribute to Chef Coleman's southern roots and the culturally diverse community of the New South from which he draws inspiration.


At The Asbury, Chef Coleman creates menus and meals that are uniquely Carolinian: modern but rustic, evolving but still rooted in classics, southern and welcoming. There is a strong tie to heirloom ingredients native to our area, lost to time and modernization, as well as specialty items grown by small, family farms throughout the region. Chef Coleman searches out the best quality he can find—much of it coming from within the local region.


The Asbury serves lunch and dinner seven days a week, and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. The Dunhill Hotel Bar features a selection of bar bites by Chef Coleman daily as well. In addition to the ground floor restaurant space, The Asbury caters unique, private dining experiences and hosts special events throughout its intimate second floor.
