Virtual Auction

The Shuck Rattle and Roll Virtual Auction came to be due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hosting events were greatly influenced by the pandemic. This forced Carteret Community College to change how they host events. Normal walk-in events became impossible, so the unique events like Suck, Rattle, and Roll had to be canceled for two years.

To recover from this, Carteret Community College aquaculture students came up with an idea. They opted to hold a Virtual Auction in place of the event. The virtual experience was made to be as similar to the real thing. The event received great support from numerous sponsors. Bidding was on for everything that went on at the event. Some of the things placed for bidding include;

  • Seafood Dinners To-Go: Like at the event, the dinners were harvested and served by Aquaculture students from Carteret CC
  • Gift cards: These came from local restaurants that helped prepare the dinners. They were paired with the dinners.
  • Sunset cruise aboard the Rebel: The Rebel is a motor yacht from 1928. It is 50 feet long and is found on Taylor’s Creek. The yacht is catered for by a restaurant in the area known as 34 degrees.
  • Air tour of the Crystal Coast: This tour would last for forty-five minutes.

The Virtual Auction opens on 26 March and closes on 9 April. It is a great chance to support Carteret Community College. The programs and students at the college gain a lot from the event.
