The Solve-A-Mystery event includes a charity auction to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals through Extra Life. The initial list of items to be auctioned is now available. This list will probably grow before event day.

Reaching Kindred status grants travel and purchase discounts, unlocks vendor items, grants titles, and gives access to purchasing faction steeds. The winner must have significant mailbox space available to receive them.

Here are tips to help you succeed at the auction:
- You can bid on an auction by listening to /SHOUT while at Windy Acres Ranch. Please make sure you can hear shouts in your chat window.
- To place a bid, you simply /shout or /say (be careful of the say bug!) how much you are willing to donate to charity. The highest bid wins.
- The auction will move very fast, so you will need to pay close attention. You may wish to increase the size of your chat window. Kiralynn will do her best to keep track of bids as they come in. If you think your bid was overlooked, please repeat it a second time.
- If you are the winning bidder, you must donate the promised sum of money to Extra Life, supporting Children’s Miracle Network hospitals using this link: http://www.extra-life.org/participant/windyacres
- If your donation is paying for an auction set, you must include the name of the auction set (as listed above) in the donation comments.
