NYCWFF Online Charitable Auction Terms and Conditions

The Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (NYCWFF) will host a 7-day online auction (“NYCWFF presents the Online Wine Auction Experience”) raising funds to support the fight to end hunger with No Kid Hungry® and Food Bank For New York City. The Festival will host the auction under a charitable permit issued by The New York State Liquor Authority, where proceeds will go toward No Kid Hungry® and Food Bank For New York City.


GENERAL: All items are sold "as is". No returns will be accepted and no refunds permitted. The law of the State of NY shall govern with respect to all auction sales. ALL bids are final and cannot be removed.

The online auction will conclude at 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on Monday, October 12, 2020. The final bidder at 5pm on Monday, October 12th will be awarded as “winning bidder”. The Festival team will connect the “winning bidder” with the winery to arrange for shipping, following the close of the auction and once payment has been confirmed. All the accompaniments will be sent separately, either electronically or in the mail.
