All sales are final. Refunds will be made only if SFCS is unable to fulfill the item as listed or at SFCS discretion.
All purchases must be paid in full on the night of the auction by cash, check, VISA, AmEx, Discover or MasterCard. Sales tax will be added to those items considered taxable by the State Board of Equalization.
Please pay careful attention to all conditions, restrictions, and expiration dates on items and services. Unless otherwise stated, all auction certificates must be usedwithin one yearof the auction date.
It is the responsibility of the winner to contact the donor after the auction to make arrangements for trips, special experiences, home and hotel stays.
SFC has made every reasonable effort to describe each item correctly. All items are sold “as is” by Santa Fe Christian Schools. The items are sold without warranty, expressed or implied, and without representation by Santa Fe Christian Schools as to actual value of an item, either for tax purposes or for general use.
According to the Internal Revenue Service, only the amount paid for an auction item in excess of the fair market value of that prize is tax deductible.
You may register to bid online at https://santafe2018.ggo.bid. Those who have RSVPed to attend the celebration as well as those who have self-registered will receive a text message with a personalized link on their smartphone. Clicking the link will log the bidder into the online auction with their personal account.
To bid on an item, enter the item number and set your maximum bid. The bidding program will enter the next minimum raise for you and automatically increase your bid as needed to stay in the lead. When you have been outbid, the auction software will notify you.
Some items have a “Buy It Now” option. If a bidder chooses to “Buy It Now,” the bidding for that item is complete. Otherwise, the bidder with the highest bid at the time of the online auction closing is declared the winner. Please note, if you don’t choose “Buy It Now”, the software will allow you to continue bidding beyond the Buy It Now price.
Online packages have stated values from the donor. Whatever you pay above the value is considered a donation for tax purposes. "Priceless" online experiences are considered donations in their entirety, e.g. Teacher of the Day, except for certain items included, e.g. entry tickets for a theme park experience with a teacher.
Online auction winners may pick up their items at the SFC Admin office on Wednesday, May 2nd from 9:00am -3:30pm.
A professional auctioneer will conduct the live auction. To place a bid, raise your pre-printed bid number high until the auctioneer acknowledges your bid.
Following the close of bidding for each item, the auctioneer will announce the winning bidder. This constitutes a legal contract to buy.
Our express check-out system is designed to speed up your departure at the end of the evening. Simply follow these steps:
First, please opt to allow SFC to retain your credit card information either when making your online RSVP or when checking in at the event. This will serve as payment for any purchases that you make. You will not be charged if you do not make any purchases.
At the end of the evening, go to the check-out station to receive a summary of your purchases and to collect your certificates. You do not need to see a cashier. Your finalized auction receipt will be mailed to you the following week.
Please note that all winning bids must be entered before statements can be printed, therefore check-out will become available at the end of the evening.
