Auction Rules:

The auction of these beautiful lighthouses will take place September 18, 2008 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Castaway Bay Resort in Sandusky.  Advance bids may be placed through this web site and you may continue to bid during the live auction in person or by phone.

The amount of confirmed bids will be posted to the website, which will be updated daily.  Only the highest bid for each lighthouse will be posted. In the case of identical bid, first in wins. For privacy sake, only your initials will be shown after the bid amount, so you can track your bid.

We invite you to attend the auction on the night of September 18th.  Auction details are being finalized, but the live auction will take place sometime between 7:00 and 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 18th.  If you are unable to attend and want to continue bidding up to the last minute, we will have proxy voters available for you to place your bid via phone.

 We regret that not all of the lighthouses are available for auction.  Some of the lighthouses were pre-sold to sponsors.  Sponsors were given an option to buy their lighthouse in advance.  Ten sponsors paid for their individual lighthouse.  We are very appreciative of their support!
