Some auction items are open only to the DuFief community and are marked as such. The DuFief PTA reserves the right to delete any bids that do not meet the bidder requirements of each listing.

Once the auction closes and payment has been confirmed, auction chairs will contact the winner to organize delivery or facilitate contact with the donor.

Winners can expect to pick up items at the school during school hours, or at Panera Bread (285 Kentlands Blvd., Gaithersburg, MD 20878) during Dining for DuFief on March 11, 2019, between 5:30pm and 8:00pm EST. Items will only be shipped in rare cases and will be done so at the winner’s expense.

Payments for auction items will be made through the BiddingOwl website, via credit card or PayPal. BiddingOwl uses PayPal as both a payment method and for credit card authentication.

All items are sold “as is.” All sales are final and no exchanges or refunds are possible. Please note any specific limitations, blackout dates, expiration dates or exclusions before bidding. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to make arrangements and/or reservations with the donor for all services.

All values stated are as estimated by the donor, where available, and are not warranted by the DuFief PTA for the purposes of valuation or tax consequences.
