About the Event

  • Welcome to the SPRING Dining with Downtown Online Auction! That's right, the 2020 event was such a success, in 2021 we'll be hosting TWO, in April (Spring) and September (Fall). We hope you'll join us for both because this isn't just an online auction... it's a full-on event in Downtown Hays that features all the things we love, our businesses, the people that own them, food, drinks, and FUN!

  • This event is called Dining with Downtown because DHDC wanted to create an event that encouraged socially connecting while physically distancing. By purchasing 1 of the featured "Dining With" items, you will enjoy a one-of-a-kind 4-course meal, drinks, and signature auction items to bid on, the evening of April 30 at 6pm.

  • You'll notice there are other items available as well. Thank you to our generous donors.

  • All proceeds from the Inaugural Dining with Downtown Online Auction directly benefit Downtown Hays Development Corporation (DHDC), a 501c3.

  • This event could not happen without the tremendous support from our incredible Downtown Businesses, the Hays community, the DHDC Board of Directors, and all of you who support Downtown Hays. We can't say THANK YOU loudly enough!
