Now, more than ever, access to clean water is critical. That is why Texas WaterTM is committed to continuing to raise funds to support the important work that Water for People is doing across the globe to provide access to safe, reliable water services.
The Water for People Silent Auction will be hosted online using HANDBID, a mobile silent auction platform which allows you to bid from your smartphone. (If you’ve attended our in person conferences before, this is the same platform we have used to support the Water for People Silent Auction in 2018 and 2019.) We have some great items you won’t want to miss and you can save time by getting set up now and get notified when bidding begins by using the instructions below:
