Silent Auction Rules
The silent auction will close promptly at 9:30 p.m., February 22, 2019.
To make a bid for a Silent Auction item, simply enter the bid number that was assigned to you. Place bids per the pre-determined minimum bids and increments on the mobile bidding application, or if bidding on paper at the event, mark bid number, Last Name or Phone number and the amount you wish to bid on the corresponding sheet or next to the amount you wish to bid if it is preset.
The opening bid on each item must be at least the minimum price listed. Each subsequent raise must follow the increment listed (if any). Any bids not adhering to this format will be declared invalid and voided.
If a name is crossed out, that bid will be considered null. (This only applies to bidders at the event bidding in the super silent auction.)
There is no “upper limit” for your bids! If the bid sheet is full, please turn it around and continue on the back or request a second sheet from a Silent Auction Volunteer, continuing to adhere to the increment set on the item.
A five-minute warning and a 1-minute warning of a table closing will be announced.
Once the auction is declared closed, the last bid entered on the bid sheet that adheres to the designated increment shall constitute the winning bid and will be so marked. The Auction Committee will mediate any disputes among bidders and that determination shall be final.
Invoices will be prepared shortly after the closing of the Silent Auction. This process may take anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes. Please be patient! For bids made online the results will be available immediately and the option to Self Checkout will become available upon auction close. There will be a formal checkout area at the event for those that wish to pay by cash or check for their winnings.
The list of winners will be posted in the Silent Auction area and invoices will be available at the “Silent Auction Checkout Table.” The cashier will ask for your ID and item number.
Auction item purchases are tax-deductible only if the winning bid exceeds the fair market value of the item (listed on the invoice). The tax-deductible amount is the winning bid minus the fair market value. Silent Auction cashiers can provide you with receipts upon request.
Auction item transactions are considered cash donations to Anaheim Hills PTA and not purchases for tangible or intangible items.
