The auction bidder form can be found on the bottom of this page. Please read our rules regarding bidding at our Charity Auction before filling out the form.
Here’s what you need to know to be a Bidder in the Chicago TARDIS 2017 Charity Auction:
- Anyone over 18 years of age and attending Chicago TARDIS can register to be a bidder
- All bidders must register either online or during the convention: this allows for appropriate follow-up and record keeping during the convention
- Tax information will be mailed to all bidders following Chicago TARDIS upon request.
- Since the charity auction wishes to encourage inclusion and healthy competition in raising funds, bidders may not make consecutive bids against themselves on any item.
- Bidders displaying inappropriate behavior towards Auction staff or who attempt to disrupt the Auction may lose bidding privileges for the current – and future – Chicago TARDIS conventions.
- Some smaller items with distinct value will have “Buy Now” options, allowing bidders to pay a small amount to purchase the item directly. If a bidder chooses to purchase such an item, the item will be removed from auction. Larger items and/or items with distinct value will not fall under this policy.
- All items must be paid for and picked up by 5:00 pm on Sunday, November 26th. If you need to leave the convention early and/or make separate arrangements for follow up, please contact the Auction Director as soon as possible.
- Auction items that are unclaimed after February 28th, 2018 may be offered for auction for the next available Chicago TARDIS convention.
All proceeds benefits the Northern Illinois Food Bank, whose mission is to lead the northern Illinois community in solving hunger by providing nutritious meals to those in need through innovative programs and partnerships.
