                         Bidding Procedures
At check-in you will receive unique bar-coded bid labels for the
auction. (SAVE TIME AT CHECK-OUT! See next page to learn
how to “pre-scan” your labels.) Use these bid labels to bid on any
item in the live and silent auctions.


Silent Auction
The silent auction will be held during cocktails and dinner. The auction will close
in two sections by categories (e.g. Fun in the City, Fashion and Pampering).
            Categories in Section A will close at 9:15pm.
            Categories in Section B will close at 9:30pm.
Refer to overhead banners to identify sections.
Each item has a bid sheet. Place a bid using your bid labels in the dollar increments listed.
The highest bidder at the close of the silent auction will receive the item.


  Found a “Must Have Item? Then, “Buy It Now!”
  Look for special bright yellow bid sheets during the silent
  auction. For these items, simply be the first bidder to
  bid the retail value of the item and it will be yours to
  keep – guaranteed! No hassles! No questions asked!


Live Auction
Live Auction items will be on display during the cocktail reception. The live
auction will be conducted by Sotheby’s auctioneer C. Hugh Hildsley.
Bids will be taken verbally. The highest bidder will receive the item.
Payments for all auction items may be made by cash, check, or credit card at
the end of the evening. Please see the Sotheby’s Condition of Sales and
Auction House Rules in the catalogue for information regarding auction rules.

                 Conditions of Sale
                for Benefit Auctions
The property offered in this sale will be offered and sold by Cancer Care, Inc.
(“CCI”). Any questions should be directed to CCI and not to Sotheby's, Inc.,
("Sotheby's"), which serves merely as auctioneer for CCI in conducting the
auction sale and participates on the following terms and conditions, as amended
by any posted notices or oral announcements during the sale, which govern the
sale of all the property offered at the auction:

1 a Neither Sotheby's nor CCI assume any risk, liability or responsibility for the
    authenticity of the authorship of any property offered at this auction (that is,
    the identity of the creator or the period, culture, source or origin, as the case
    may be, with which the creation of any property is identified).

  b ALL PROPERTY IS SOLD "AS IS" AND NEITHER SOTHEBY'S NOR CCI
    MAKES ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND OR
    NATURE, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE PROPERTY,
    AND IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER OF THEM BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE
    CORRECTNESS OF ANY CATALOGUE OR NOTICES OR DESCRIPTIONS OF
    PROPERTY, NOR BE DEEMED TO HAVE MADE, ANY REPRESENTATIONS
    OR WARRANTY OF PHYSICAL CONDITION, SIZE, QUALITY, RARITY,
    IMPORTANCE, GENUINENESS, ATTRIBUTION, AUTHENTICITY,
    PROVENANCE OR HISTORICAL RELEVANCE OF THE PROPERTY. No
    statement in any catalogue, notice or description or made at the sale, in any
    bill of sale invoice or elsewhere, shall be deemed such a representation or
    warranty or any assumption of liability. Neither Sotheby's nor CCI makes any
    representation or warranty, expressed or implied, as to whether the
    purchaser acquires any reproduction rights in the property. Prospective
    bidders should inspect the property before bidding to determine its
    condition, size and whether or not it has been repaired or restored.

2 Any property may be withdrawn by Sotheby's or CCI at any time before the
  actual sale without any liability therefor.
3 Sotheby's and CCI reserve the right to reject a bid from any bidder. The highest
  bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. In the event of
  any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer shall have sole and final discretion
  either to determine the successful bidder or to reoffer and resell the article in
  dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, CCI’s sale records shall be conclusive
  in all respects.

4 If the auctioneer determines that any opening bid is not commensurate with the
  value of the article offered, s/he may reject the same and withdraw the article
  from sale, and if, having acknowledged an opening bid, s/he decides that any
  advance thereafter is insufficient, he may reject the advance.

5 On the fall of the auctioneer's hammer, the highest bidder shall be deemed to
  have purchased the offered lot subject to all of the conditions set forth herein
  and thereupon (a) assumes the risk and responsibility thereof (including without
  limitation damage to frames or glass the covering prints), (b) will sign a
  confirmation of purchase thereof and (c) will pay the full purchase price therefore
  or such part as CCI may require. All property shall be removed from CCI’s
  premises by the purchaser at his/her expense no later than three days following
  its sale and, if not so removed, will be sent by CCI at the expense of the purchaser
  to a public warehouse for the account, risk and expense of the purchaser and such
  added charges will then be added to the purchase price of the object. If the
  foregoing conditions and other applicable conditions are not complied with, in
  addition to other remedies available to CCI by law, including, without limitation,
  the right to hold the purchaser liable for the bid price, CCI at their option, may
  either (a) cancel the sale, or (b) resell the property on three days notice to the
  purchaser and for the account and risk of the purchaser, either publicly or
  privately, and in such event the purchaser shall be liable for payment of any
  deficiency, all other charges due hereunder and incidental damages.

6 Any checks should be payable to CancerCare and not to Sotheby's.

7 a In the case of order bids or bids transmitted by telephone, Sotheby's and CCI
    are not responsible for any errors or omissions in connection such bids.
