2024 Eclipse "Fun-Raiser" Silent Auction Rules for Tower Bid
Silent Auction Rules:
All bids shall be received by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Any bids submitted by any mail carrier must have arrived at the Sodus Point Post Office or the Lighthouse by March 15, 2023.
E-mail bids and mailed in bids will be opened after the post office box delivery has been removed from the mailbox on March 15, 2023. At least two (2) Board Members will be present to verify results.
The special ticket will be awarded to the highest bidder upon receipt of the funds.
In the event of a tie, the bid will be awarded to the bid received on the earliest date or the earliest postmark.
Two runners-up will be determined in case weather or other circumstances prevent the winner from attending the eclipse event. This situation will be announced as the earliest possible moment and every effort will be made to locate the runners-up. Payment of their bid will be expected before issuing the new ticket.
A refund to the original bidder will only be made if the circumstances causing them not to attend were clearly beyond their control. This does include environmental conditions.
Enough General admission tickets will be held back for all bidders to facilitate purchasing their access to the site for the event after March 15 until March 20. All unsold tickets will then be sold to the general public.
