‘BUY IT NOW’ option

For those who will not be available at 3 pm on Monday, we will also have our ‘BUY IT NOW’ option.  The BUY IT NOW price will be shown clearly each bid sheet. The BUY IT NOW option will no longer be available once bidding reaches 90% of the BUY IT NOW price listed.  (For example:  If the BUY IT NOW price is $100, if the bidding gets to $90, then the Buy It Now option will be removed.)  Also, we will remove the BUY IT NOW option after 1 pm on Monday.

Those using the BUY IT NOW option will pay for, and take, their item immediately.  No need to wait until 3 pm on Monday

Payment can be made via CASH, Cheque, or Credit Card.

We were very pleased with our Silent Auction in 2016 at BCWWA’s Whistler Conference, where, through the support of our donors and bidders, we raised over $3000.00 for Water for People-Canada.  We look forward to an equally successful Silent Auction in 2017.
