Two of the “Runway Mannequins”

During Jazz & Beyond 2019, we will be doing silent auctions of eleven or so mannequins that were created for the 2018 festival.  Each mannequin will have her or his day in which her/his auction concludes.  Silent-auction bidding for all mannequins will begin on a date to be determined.  Bids for all remaining mannequins will be accepted at each of the events listed below.  The minimum bid for each mannequin is $25.  Challenge bids (higher bids) must not include cents.

Here is the planned schedule for final bids on each mannequin (subject to change).  Times shown are for the start of each concert.  Auctions will close during the concert indicated:
