Dear supporter of Leaside Memorial Community Gardens.

Thank you for registering and bidding in the Leaside On Ice FUNdraiser Silent Auction. A reminder that the auction closes at 5:00 PM on Sunday November 24. More details on the auction closing, extended bidding, and item pick-up follows.

Auction Timing
Auction closes at 5:00 PM on Sunday November 24, however extended bidding is in place. Extended Bidding extends the end time of an item by 3 minutes when it receives a bid during the final 3 minutes. This process repeats until no new bids are received during the final 3 minutes of the item bidding window or the auction has been extended for a maximum of 30 minutes beyond the original end time. When an auction is extended, you will see Extended Bidding messages displayed throughout the auction with a link for easily viewing all of the extended items. We are using the Extended Bidding option to deter auction sniping, which is the process of entering a bid in the final seconds of an auction, leaving no opportunity for other participants to outbid the sniper.

All bids are made online and payment is made online, by credit card, by the successful bidder for each item.

If a “Buy It Now” price is met in a bid, that item is identified as “sold” on the online auction site and no further bids were accepted. Not all items have a “Buy it Now” price.

No payment will be accepted by Arena staff at pick up. All items are pre-paid.

Item Pick – Up
Successful bidders can collect their items from the arena office at Leaside Memorial Community Gardens, (1073 Millwood Rd.), during business hours, 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday, beginning Monday November 25th. Please call the arena in advance of your arrival to ensure staff are in the office and not elsewhere in the facility. 416-421-4944.

Note: Successful bidders MUST show their confirmation email from 32Auctions either on a mobile device or as a print-out, in order to pick up their items. We want to be sure that everyone leaves with the correct auction item.

On behalf of the board of Leaside Memorial Community Gardens, we thank you for your support of our facility and the community it serves.
