GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:
BY PARTICIPATING AND/OR BIDDING IN THE AUCTION YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS, RULES, AND CONDITIONS:
The following general terms and conditions govern any and all transactions in connection with the 2021 Paul Revere Auction and Gala (the “Auction”).
The on-line portion of the Auction will open for bidding on Tuesday, August 18, at 12:00 p.m., and close on Thursday, February 18, 2021, at 9:00 a.m., Pacific Standard Time. You will need to register your information and credit card before you will be able to bid on-line. The highest on-line bid for each item will carry over to the silent auction bidding at the Spring Auction party on February 20, 2021 at the Pacific Palisades Women’s Club. Bidding will reopen and continue again at 6:00 p.m. on February 20, 2021. The last on-line bidding price on each item as of Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. will be the starting price of the bids at the silent auction at the Pacific Palisades Women’s Club on February 20, 2021.
PLEASE NOTE: Being the “current highest bidder” when the on-line portion ends on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. does NOT guarantee that you will win that item. You may still be outbid at the silent auction on February 20, 2021 at the Pacific Palisades Women’s Club and you will not receive an email notification that you have been outbid, or any notice whatsoever advising whether or not you are the highest bidder and/or whether or not bids have been submitted on any item at the silent auction on February 20, 2021.
Certain items may be available for purchase on-line at the “BUY IT NOW” price listed. When the BUY IT NOW price is listed below any Auction item, that item may be purchased immediately without waiting for the Auction category to close and/or the bidding to end. Anyone who purchases an item for the BUY IT NOW price will instantly be deemed the highest bidder and will win that item. Said item will not carry over to the silent auction event on February 20, 2021 at the Pacific Palisades Women’s Club. Please note that unless you BUY IT NOW, bidding on items will continue through the February 20th event.
Winning bidders will be contacted after the conclusion of the February 20, 2021 bidding process. You can register and view the on-line catalog at https://paulrevere.onlineauctionbook.com/. Not all items will be available during the on-line auction.
Check-in and issuance of bid labels/bid numbers
Upon check-in, all pre-registered bidders will receive their sheet of Bid Labels (including their individual Bid Number). Bidders who are not pre-registered on the date of the event will be issued a sheet of Bid Labels (including Bid Number) in exchange for credit card account information. To bid, please use the labels provided and affix them to the Bid Sheets of the items you desire to bid on.
The participants with the highest bids at the close of the Auction (Saturday, February 20, 2021) become buyers and are obligated to purchase the items. If no bids are submitted at or above the reserve price for any given item, the Auction closes without a buyer for said item.
The success of the Auction depends on the goodwill of the donors and on careful observance by the buyers of terms stated in descriptions and restrictions. BUYERS SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT TO ALTER THE TERMS OF A BID, PURCHASE, AND/OR DONATION. Any such attempts will not be valid nor binding, and may cause the bid to be disregarded and/or voided, at the sole discretion of PRIDE and/or the Auction Committee.
The live and silent auction will take place on Saturday, February 20, 2021 (no ticket refunds will be given after February 18, 2021), starting at 6:00 p.m at the Pacific Palisades Women’s Club located at 901 Haverford Ave, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272. Upon arrival, you must register and receive bid stickers with your bid number printed. You will need bid stickers to participate in the silent auction. Use only the bid number assigned to you for bidding on silent and live auction items. Please note that the check-in process will be faster for those bidders who have registered/pre-authorized their credit card on the Paul Revere Auction website, www.paulrevere.onlineauctionbok.com.
The Silent Auction opens at 6:00 PM. A bid sheet is displayed for each item. Bid sheets must stay with their corresponding item in their designated location until the Auction closes. You may bid on the item(s) by placing your bid sticker next to the desired pre-printed bid amount. Doing so constitutes a legal contract to purchase that silent auction item at that pre-printed price if your bid is the winning bid. Bid stickers may not be removed from or covered by other bid stickers on the bid sheet. All items are described on the Bid Sheets. Descriptions and instructions on Bid Sheets supersede the online Auction Catalog and should be read prior to bidding. The Auction Committee and the donor(s) are not responsible for dissatisfaction resulting from a buyer’s failure to read restrictions that may accompany auction items. ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND ALL GOODS ARE SOLD “AS IS”. The Auction Committee neither represents nor warrants, and shall in no event be responsible for the correctness of the description or genuineness, authorship, provenance or condition of the items or quality of services rendered. No statement contained in the catalog or made orally at the auction or elsewhere shall be deemed to be such a warranty, representation or assumption of liability.
Minimum bids are at a substantial discount of the actual value of the item. If a bid is below the minimum bid amount, it will not be valid. Bids will be accepted on each item in a category until the closing time for that category. Bidding on an item must stop when the Silent Auction officials (volunteers assigned to work the Silent Auction) close the bidding. No bids will be accepted or considered after the closing time for the bidding. The last (highest) valid bid placed prior to the section closing will be the winning bid.
Some items will indicate that they have a BUY IT NOW bid amount. Placing your sticker next to that BUY IT NOW bid amount will close the bidding for this item, and you will be the winner of this item. By placing your bid sticker in this box, you are legally bound to purchase the item at the BUY IT NOW price indicated.
There are certain Silent Auction items of which we have secured multiples of the same exact item. The bid sheets will state the number of exact items available. For these items, the number of winners will be indicated on the bid sheet.
All sales are final. The Auction Committee reserves the right to withdraw and/or modify any item at any time without notice before the actual sale. The Auction Committee also reserves the right to combine items at any time or lower the minimum bid without notice before the actual sale. In the event of a dispute, the Auction Committee shall act as final authority in determining the winning bid. The entire silent auction will close at approximately 8:00 PM.
Live Auction bidding will begin at approximately 8:00 PM. When bidding, please hold up your bid number facing the auctioneer. Every effort will be made to identify and recognize all bids, but it is your responsibility as a bidder to make your bid known. The Live Auction will continue until all items are sold. If a group is bidding on one item, please designate one person to place your combined bid. Auction items will be awarded to one purchaser only. Said individual will be individually and personally bound to purchase and pay for the item. A bid acknowledged by the auctioneer is a legal contract to purchase the item. All sales are final.
At the end of the night, bidders should proceed to the cashier ("check-out") area for item(s) won or to learn if item(s) have in fact been won.
All items must be paid for by no later than February 20, 2021, at 10:00 p.m. For your convenience, we gladly accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard, Visa and American Express. Credit Card information should be provided at check-in registration to speed up the payment process at the end of the evening.
At redemption, you will be issued a receipt with which you’ll be able to claim your winning merchandise and/or certificates. Volunteers will be working as quickly as possible to collect your items for you. Please be patient. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to remove his/her winning item(s) by the end of the Auction, by no later than February 20, 2021, at approximately 10:00 p.m. No refunds will be given for lost or misplaced items.
If you would like, you may pick up your winning items at school within one week from the date of the Auction. There will be a $25 fee added to your bill. All winning items left behind at the event will be taken to school and automatically assessed the $25 delivery fee.
