Silent Auction

Silent Auction Rules

 By bidding in Brywood PTA’s silent auctions, each bidder agrees to these auction rules.

  1. All sales are final. There will be no exchanges or refunds unless otherwise noted. All items are “as is.” Brywood PTA has attempted to describe and catalog items correctly, but neither warrants nor represents and in no event shall be responsible for the correctness of descriptions, genuineness, authorship, provenance or condition of the items. No statement made in this catalog, or made orally at the auction or elsewhere, shall be deemed such a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability.

  2. The auction item value listed is an estimate of fair market value. Items have not been appraised unless so noted. The amount you pay above this fair market value estimate is normally tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please consult your tax adviser to clarify amount of deduction.

  3. Restaurant certificates do not include alcohol, tax, or gratuities unless specified.

  4. Payment for items purchased must be made in full on the pick-up dates listed below. Brywood PTA accepts cash, MasterCard, Visa, or a check made payable to Brywood PTA.

  5. All winners will be notified via email by the Monday following the auction.

  6. The purchaser may pick up and pay for their item(s) on the Tuesday morning following the auction (at 8am drop-off time) or the Wednesday following the auction at 1:20pm, right after school. Any item left unclaimed an unpaid, without prior arrangements, will be sold and proceeds will go to Brywood PTA.

  7. Brywood PTA reserves the right to add or withdraw items, without notice, to or from the auction.

  8. Incremental bids that don’t meet the minimum incremental bid amount are invalid bids.

  9. All decisions by the Auction Chair are final.

  10. Unless otherwise specified, all auction gift certificates must be used within one year of the date of the auction. Many items have specific restrictions, conditions or expiration dates. Please review bid sheet for clarification.

  11. Each person bidding assumes all risks and hazards related to the auction and items obtained at the auction. Each bidder agrees to hold harmless from any liability arising indirectly from Brywood PTA, their elected and appointed officials, members and employees, the event organizers, sponsors, and/or volunteers connected with the auction.
