The Old Fort Western (OFW) 2018 Silent Auction is officially open! The auction will run December 5th thru Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at 3:00 pm.
Please find the inventory of items in OFW’s 2018 Silent Auction attached. This year we have over 90 items with a combined value of over $5,000. Our heartfelt thanks go to all businesses, staff and friends of the fort who have contributed to this cause. Remember all proceeds go to support OFW Education Programming.
You can bid either in person or on-line. To bid in person, come to the Learning Gallery which is located on the first floor of Augusta City Hall (Room 145 across the hall from CTV-7). All items are on display on tables and shelves with their bid forms. Bid forms for gift cards, gift certificates, memberships and vouchers are arranged by category and affixed to the walls. We just need your name, contact information and the amount you wish to bid.
To bid on-line, just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org clearly marked with your name, the date, the time, the item number of the object you want to bid on and your bid amount. Make sure to put “2018 OFW Silent Auction” in the SUBJECT LINE. You can also bid by phone at 207-626-2385.
Bids are to be in $1 increments and the first bid must meet the minimum bid listed which is one quarter of the item’s value. The interim bid amounts will be updated daily on our website www.oldfortwestern.org.
At the close of bids on Wednesday, December 19th, bid winners will be posted on-line and individuals notified by the end of Thursday, December 20th. Items need to be picked up and paid for by December 31st, 2018 unless other arrangements are made. Any item not picked up before December 31st will be offered to the next highest bidder on the bid form.
Thank you for participating in Old Fort Western’s 2018 Silent Auction! Remember this is a fund raising event, so if you frequently visit any of these businesses and willingly pay full amounts for the same items then why not do the same here and help Fort Western’s Educational Programming.
