The Royal Academy of Dance Genée 2016 fundraising auctionRead more ...
Established in 1920, the RAD is one of the world’s most influential dance education organisations. Our exams set standards in classical ballet and we are a global leader in Continuing Professional Development for dance.
The RAD is the professional membership organisation for dance teachers. We have over 8,000 teaching members that we support through providing syllabi, training, resources, and professional development. Our teachers enter more students for exams than any other dance organisation.
We also bring the benefits of dance into communities with
the support of donors, corporate fundraising, trusts and foundations. These
enable us to develop and deliver activities to a wide range of patrons, from
children with Special Educational Needs to adults in residential homes, and to
offer a range of student bursaries.
Proceeds from this fundraising auction will support the Genée International Ballet Competition 2016, with the final taking place on December 11th at the Sydney Opera House.
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.
