Benches Auction!

Art in the Park Benches Auction

The benches silent auction bidding will be online and in-person.  The minimum bid for a bench is $400.  The benches can be delivered within the Frederick, Maryland area (no stairs).  Bids can be for a specific amount or an amount such as “up to $950 going $25 over the highest bid below that amount*.”  Bids must be in $25 increments. Bids will be in a “sealed envelope” rather than a typical auction format.

Specifics:  Bidding ends at 5:00 PM on Saturday, May 5, 2018.  In-person bids can only be made at The Arc at Market Street on Saturday, May 5 from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM, which is when the benches are available for viewing.  Bids online must be sent to Shauna Mulcahy at The Arc at smulcahy@arcfc.org by 5:00 PM on Saturday, May 5.  All email bids that are received will be acknowledged.  Winners will be notified of winning bids on Monday, May 7 and Tuesday, May 8.  All decisions as to winning bids/bidders will be made by The Arc of Frederick County at its sole discretion.

 

*For example - Someone else bids $700, so you get the bench for $725.  Someone else bids $1,000, you do not get the bench because your top bid is $950.
