The amount that you pay over the fair market value of any item is usually tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please see your tax preparer or verify with the IRS to confirm. Printed invoices will show the amount paid over the fair-market value. Unless otherwise specified, certificates and services must be used before April 24, 2016.
Restaurant certificates do not include liquor, tax, or gratuities unless otherwise indicated. All hotel and resort reservations are based on availability unless the certificate specifies an exact date.

Almost Live Rules
To bid on Almost Live auction items, write your bid number on the form next to the amount you wish to bid. Bids must be opened and raised in the specified increments on the form. You need not offer the next available bid amount on the form; you can skip ahead to the amount you wish to bid. To guarantee your bid, write your assigned bid number in the Guaranteed Purchase box on the bid sheet. You may bid on the Almost Live items until each section is closed.
