Please join us for a magical Gala evening, full of fun and merriment, to be held on a stunning private estate overlooking the ruins of Boxgrove Priory near Chichester.
With a glamorous Midsummer Night’s Dream theme, complete with fireflies and fairies, 300 guests will be invited to join us for a spectacular night of entertainment, fine dining, dancing and surprises.
As the summer sun begins to set, you and fellow guests will enjoy a champagne reception.You will then be invited to enter our enchanting Midsummer Night’s Dreamy woodland glade and sit down to an exquisite three-course dinner provided by Field & Fork, complemented by a selection of wines chosen by our sommelier to accompany the meal.
Be prepared to be wowed by surprises during the evening, including performances by a *dreamy group that has performed for Prince Charles, Richard Branson and George Clooney.
Our Hospice Patron Mark Hewitt, retired partner of Stride and Son, will lead a fun-filled live auction, featuring seven exclusive lots. You will also have the opportunity to bid on extraordinary silent auction prizes and win one of three enchanted raffle prizes.
After dinner and the auction, you can dance the night away in our Midsummer Night’s Dreamy Grotto.
This auction will be available for online bidding until 12 noon on Friday 15th June 2018, following which it will re-open on bidding tablets only at the venue on Saturday 16th June.
If you are not attending the Gala, please place a proxy (maximum) bid on this page before the 12 noon deadline on Friday and the system will continue to bid up your behalf until it reaches your maximum.
If you are not going to be at the Gala and would like to bid on any of
the LIVE AUCTION items, please email firstname.lastname@example.org in
confidence and she will pass your proxy bid to the auctioneer. Please
ensure you receive a reply to any live auction bid that you make. All bids must
be received and confirmed by 12 noon on 15th June 2018.
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.
