          Governing Rules of the Auction
•      Upon arrival, each guest will receive a bid card with an assigned number. The
       bidder number will be used for the purpose of placing bids for both the silent and
       live auctions as outlined below.

•      All sales are final. No exchanges or refunds will be allowed. Terms and restrictions,
       if any, vary for each item, so please read information carefully.

•      Each person issued a bidder number ("the buyer") assumes all risks associated with
       the auction. The buyer waives any claim to liability against St. Raphael Parish, its
       elected and appointed officials, members and employees, auctioneer, event
       organizers and volunteers ("St. Raphael"). Neither St. Raphael nor the donor of
       property or services is responsible for any personal injuries or damages to property
       that may result from the use of the property or services sold.

•      St. Raphael reserves the right to add or withdraw, without notice, auction items
       prior to purchase.

•      Though every attempt has been made to describe correctly items in the catalog,
       everything is sold "as is." St. Raphael shall not be held responsible for the accuracy
       of description or condition of the items.

•      Unless otherwise noted, all goods, services and certificates must be redeemed
       within one year of the auction date.

•      Buyer and donor will arrange mutually convenient dates for events and vacation
       accommodations, unless otherwise specified.

•      If more than one buyer is purchasing an item (e.g., two families are splitting the
       cost of a trip), full payment must be made by one buyer. Reimbursement
       between joint buyers is the responsibility of the parties involved.

•      All resort and private vacation homes are offered only to adults or minors
       accompanied by adults.

•      It will be the buyer’s responsibility to arrange for delivery of items purchased, if
       required, unless otherwise noted.

•      Payment in full for auction purchases must be made the evening of the
       Gala. Cashiers will be available after the live auction has ended. Buyers are
       encouraged to register their credit cards upon arrival to expedite the checkout
       process. Checks (payable to "St. Raphael Parish"), Visa, MasterCard and

	
                                              5	
  
	
  
           American Express will be accepted.

•          At checkout, the buyer will receive a receipt for purchases and will authorize
           those purchases to be charged to the buyer’s credit card.

•          All items must be removed from the auction premises the night of the Gala. Large
           or bulky items must be picked up at the school reception desk between 9 a.m.
           and 2 p.m. Monday, March 14, 2011. St. Raphael is not responsible for any items
           left for pickup after the Gala.

•          All alcoholic beverages purchased must be removed from the premises the night
           of the Gala.



                                    Silent Auction Rules
       •   Each item has a bid sheet listing the minimum acceptable bid and minimum raise.
           To place a bid, write your name and bidder number next to the amount you wish
           to bid on the bid sheet.

       •   Bids will already be printed in whole dollar amounts, and bidders will be required
           to meet the printed minimum raise.

       •   Bids, once recorded, cannot be withdrawn.

       •   There will be staggered closings of the silent auction categories shown on the
           floor plan. An announcement will be made before each closing.
           St. Raphael reserves the right to extend the closings.

       •   At the close of each silent auction category, the highest bidder recorded on
           each sheet is the winner of the item and is obligated to purchase the item for the
           amount bid.

       •   No bids will be accepted after the close of each category.

       •   On a highly contested item, St. Raphael reserves the right to modify the bidding
           procedures.

       •   All items will be held in the checkout area until paid for, receipts issued and
           released.

                                  Live Auction Rules
•      To bid in the live auction, raise your bid card in the air, with your bid number
       clearly facing the auctioneer. The highest bidder acknowledged by the
       auctioneer will be recorded as the buyer.

•      Bids, once recorded, cannot be withdrawn.

•      The auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid that, in his or her opinion, is not
       commensurate with the value of the item being offered.

•      In the event of any dispute, the auctioneer shall determine the successful bidder.

•      The winning bidder will immediately receive for signature a Buyer’s Agreement,
       listing name and amount of winning bid.

•      A bidder representing a group assumes responsibility for full payment at the close
       of the auction. St. Raphael will not solicit payment from individual group
       members.



                                  Tax Information
You will be provided with a receipt for your auction purchases, which you may wish to
retain for tax purposes. Your receipt includes a good-faith estimate of the value of
the item, based on information provided by the donor. Unless otherwise specified, no
professional appraisals have been conducted, and St. Raphael is not responsible for
the accuracy of such valuations. The winner's payment generally is deductible for
federal income-tax purposes to the extent that the payment exceeds the fair market
value of the item. It is advisable to consult with your own tax advisor for definitive
advice regarding the deductibility of an individual item, permissible deductible
amount of any item, and documentation or other substantiation that may be required
for such deductions.

       Live Auction
       Kindergarten Class Project

       Our kindergartners lovingly hand-painted two beautiful blue
       Adirondack chairs for their contribution to the auction. They used
       their fingers to form tiny colorful spring flowers that are grouped
       into a cross on the base of each chair. You are sure to love each
       sweet detail of these special chairs. The children also painted a
       lovely terra cotta planter with their unique handprints forming a
       flower garden. These pieces certainly will breathe a breath of
       spring air onto any porch, patio, or backyard.


       First Grade Class Project

       The First Grade class created a one-of-a-kind masterpiece for our
       Gala. The children hand-painted a beautiful ceramic vase,
       creating gorgeous flowers with their own fingerprints. As an extra
       special touch, each child’s name is woven into the stems of the
       flowers. This is truly a unique gift from the children that would add
       beauty to any home.


       Second Grade Class Project

       St. Raphael’s second-graders created a gorgeous piece of
       artwork that perfectly celebrates their special sacramental year.
       Each child designed and hand painted a beautiful ceramic cross.
       These crosses were then mounted on a striking mosaic frame that
       surrounds a glass mirror. The effect is stunning! In addition, each
       child in the second grade personally handcrafted a clay bead to
       be included in the class-wide project. This rosary is unique
       treasure that would be a wonderful remembrance of their First
       Communion.	
  

       Third Grade Class Project

       Our third graders have simply outdone themselves! For their
       contribution to the Gala, they worked together to create a
       beautiful free-standing mosaic birdbath. They each placed small
       pieces of glass tile in stunning shades of blue and aquamarine
       onto the birdbath. The end result is nothing short of spectacular.
       This birdbath would certainly enhance any backyard or outdoor
       living space. The children also hand painted two charming
       wooden birdhouses to complete their gift.

       Fourth Grade Class Project

       For their contribution to the Gala, our fourth graders collaborated
       on a stunning ceramic platter and four coordinating dessert
       plates. These dishes display each child’s unique personal touch as
       the children created a garden of pansies made with their own
       fingerprints. The platter is made all the “sweeter” as it also features
       a beautiful flower painted by St. Raphael’s own gifted resident
       artist, Ginger Browning. This dessert set truly is delicious!


       Fifth Grade Class Project

       Talk about deserving an “A” in art! St. Raphael’s fifth graders are
       truly dynamite with decoupage! For their contribution they craftily
       covered letters with bold and brilliant craft paper to spell out the
       words “LOVE,” “FAMILY,” and “LAUGH”. These letters were then
       individually sealed and are ready to be displayed on a wall, shelf,
       or piece of furniture. They are truly unique items and are
       guaranteed to be great conversation pieces.
