Live Auction Proxy Bidding

Below are the live auction items on which you can submit a proxy bid, which will be collected by the auction organizers and a designated person on the auction team will bid for you during the auction, up until your proxy bid amount. The proxy bid you enter in the form is the maximum you are willing to pay for the item. It does not mean you will actually bid this much. If you proxy bid $1,000 on an item, but bidding stops at $800 and you are the high bidder, $800 is what you will pay. Only one person will see your proxy bid amount and under no circumstances will the auctioneer see the proxy bids.
