ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES WILL BE MADE. All payments must be made in cash, check, AMEX, MasterCard or VISA by the end of the event, May 19, 2019. The seller does not warrant and expressly denies responsibility for, and in no event shall be responsible or liable for, the accuracy of the description of the wines and other items offered, or the correctness of the catalog, including, but not limited to: the origin, rarity, age, rating, genuineness, quantity, aging potential, preset and future quality or condition of the wines or other lots described. All statements by seller are merely statements of opinion and are not to be relied upon by prospective purchasers as warranties or representations of fact, and prospective bidders by so bidding, acknowledge that they have inspected the wines and/or other items to their satisfaction and bid only as the result of their own inspection and opinion. All wine and other items are sold “AS IS.” All trip, dining and activity packages are sold as described. Substitutions of destinations, itineraries, facilities, accommodation, dates or associated activities are not available through seller and requests for same will not be accepted. Auction service items must be used prior to the expiration date listed on the certificate, or, if no expiration date is explicitly stated, within one year of this auction, unless otherwise agreed to by the item donor. Seller does not make any representation or warranty regarding, and is not responsible for, the quality or usability of any items sold. For federal income tax purposes, the Santa Monica Education Foundation is classified as a tax-exempt corporation under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). Bidders may be entitled to deduct a portion of their payments for auction lots as a charitable contribution. Each bidder should consult his or her tax adviser regarding the actual fair market value and the deductibility for state and federal income tax purposes.

LIVE AUCTION - No bid shall be valid unless acknowledged by the auctioneer. In the case of two or more persons bidding simultaneously, the auctioneer will determine who made the final bid. The auctioneer will declare the lot “SOLD” and the highest acknowledged bidder shall be deemed to have purchased the lot and thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility thereof. The person making the final bid will immediately pay the full purchase price. All sales are final and there will be no exchanges or refunds. Please read the auction item description carefully and note any restrictions. Should a dispute arise between bidders, or should the auctioneer doubt the validity of any bid, the auctioneer shall have the absolute right to resolve the dispute, re-offer, resell or withdraw the lot in question. Seller’s sole responsibility for non-delivery shall be limited to refund the purchase price. By bidding, the bidder agrees to be bound by these conditions of purchase.

SILENT AUCTION - All items in the Silent Auction are available for bids via GiveSmart’s electronic bidding system. Persons desiring to bid must do so by registering to bid and accessing the GiveSmart website and entering their bid amount for each item sought. Each increase in bid must meet or exceed the minimum increase figure assigned to each item. The Silent Auction will close at approximately 8:30pm on May 19, 2019. All items must be claimed and removed by the buyer by 9:30pm on May 19, 2019 at the event or at the Ed Foundation office the following week.
