THE VILLAGE CENTERS
ENCHANTED FOREST GALA
Saturday, October 7, 2023
Those not attending the Enchanted Forest Gala will still be able to bid on live auction items by using proxy bidding.
Proxy bidding will be used as follows: Any person registered to bid may submit a bid using the Proxy Bidder Form for the item(s) they are interested in, as well as the maximum bid they are willing to make. During the auction, we will have “proxy bidder” volunteers who have this confidential information, and who will bid on the bidder’s behalf.
Bids will be increased only according to the bid increases established by the auctioneer, and proxy bidders will not exceed the amount authorized in the proxy bid. If the bid amount on the subject item(s) goes beyond the maximum authorized in the proxy bid, no attempt will be made to contact the person placing the proxy bid.
Your payment information will be kept confidential. If you have the winning bid(s) you will be contacted by phone and will be emailed/mailed an invoice. Credit card information will be processed and then shredded.
Note: The person associated with the bidding number will be responsible for payment of the auction item. If you choose to have someone who is attending the Enchanted Forest Gala bid on your behalf with his/her bid number rather than submit a formal proxy bid, he/she will assume responsibility for the payment and collection of the item. All appropriate forms, including the receipt will be submitted to the person with the winning bid number. Should you choose to bid through someone rather than submit a formal proxy bid, you may not receive the tax benefits associated with the purchase of the item (if applicable). All sales are final.
To submit a proxy bid, you must pre-register using this Proxy Bidder Form prior to 5:00pm on Friday, October 6, 2023.
