Rules of the Silent Auction
The Silent Auction is conducted in writing. Retail Value, Description and Guaranteed Purchase Price of the item are indicated on the bid sheet. To make a bid, write your
bidder number on the bid sheet. Your bid must begin at or above the posted minimum
bid requirement. Each increase must equal the increment specified on the bid sheet. Minimum bids will not be lowered. If you wish to buy the item before the Auction closes, write your bidder number in the Guaranteed Purchase box. No further bidding
will be allowed for the item and the item is yours.
Opening and Closing Times
The Silent Auction will open at 6:30 pm and will close at 8:15 pm on April 19, 2013.
Payment by successful bidders must be made with cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express before items can be collected. Checks should be made payable to the Lyric Opera of Kansas City.
All Sales Final
Each bid legally obligates the bidder to pay the bid price in full if the bid is deemed to be the high bid at the close of the Auction. All sales are final, and everything is sold “as is.” There will be no exchanges or refunds on items by donors, the Lyric Opera of Kansas City, or the Lyric Opera Circle, except where specified.
Please do not ask the donors for exchanges or refunds!
The Lyric Opera pledges that every effort has been made to assure delivery of tickets, special accommodations, goods, services, and transportation arrangements as stated in the description of each item. There are no expressed or implied warranties with respect to property or services. The buyer waives any claims for liability against the Lyric Opera of Kansas City, the Lyric Opera Circle or the donor for any personal injuries or damages that may result from the buyer’s or another’s use of property or services sold through the Auction.
Gift certificates are not redeemable for cash and, unless otherwise noted, will expire one year from the date of the Auction. Please read all information carefully, especially specific instructions, expiration dates, restrictions and blackout dates.
