The Great Gatsby Summer Ball 2018Read more ...
On the 16th June 2018, the Friends of Dulwich Prep London will be hosting a charity black tie summer ball in aid of the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at King’s College Hospital.
The aim of the event is to raise £35,000 to purchase an echocardiogram machine for assessing heart and liver function in children on the intensive care unit, the liver ward and elsewhere at King’s. The machine has numerous educational and monitoring benefits, and as it is portable, intensive care patients will be able to receive on-ward assessments, saving critical time where seconds count.
Bidding on this auction is available online until 12 noon on Friday 15th June, 2018. If you are unable to attend the Ball, but are interested in bidding on any of the items, you can still do so by placing a proxy (or maximum) bid on this page. After online bidding closes, your maximum bid will be carried over to the Ball on Saturday 16th June, 2018 where bidding will continue on your behalf up to your maximum.
If you are still the highest bidder at the end of the evening, you will be contacted after the Ball.
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
