RHET Gala Silent Auction

Read more ...

Our Silent Auction is now open and lots can be viewed online and bids made. The online auction will be open to everyone for bidding until 4pm  on 21st February 2020. The leading bid on each lot at that time will be carried over to the auction at the event that evening where the bidding will conclude and will only be available at the venue.

If you are unable to attend the fundraising gala  but wish to bid on an item, you can still give yourself the best chance of winning by placing a proxy (maximum) bid on this page. We then will carry your bid over to the main auction on the evening of the event and continue bidding for you up to your maximum. You will be contacted after the fundraising gala if your bid has been successful.

If you are not attending the Gala but wish to bid on one of our Live Auction Items featured on this page, then please lodge your maximum bid by emailing rhetgala@rhass.org.uk and we will bid up to this amount on your behalf on the night.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
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.
For example:
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.
