If your question is not addressed below, please email us at HaycockPTAAuction@gmail.com.
1. What is the attire for the event?
We picked the Dr. Seuss theme in part because it didn't signify a formal event, and it didn't suggest a particular type of attire to stay with the theme. This is your evening out, and we want you to be comfortable. If we had to put a name on it, let's go with Casual.
2. What if I can't come to the event, but I want to bid on an item? Is there online bidding?
Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to provide online bidding this year. If you are not able to attend the event, it is certainly encouraged that you discuss the items you want/your highest bid for each item with a friend who is going to the event. Please ask him/her to bid and pay for you at the auction. You can reimburse your friend afterwards.
3. Are you still accepting donations?
We are still accepting donations, and we encourage you to enter them through the Donate an Auction Item page of this site. Note that any items received after Tuesday, February 13, 2015 will not be included in the printed catalog, but will be listed on the flyer to be handed out the night of the auction.
4. Is this a family event or just for adults?
This is an adult-only event.
5. I bought my ticket online. Do I need to bring my printed receipt? Will I get an actual ticket?
It will not hurt to bring your printed receipt and is only necessary if we can't find your registration. You will not receive an actual ticket to the event. When you arrive, you will check in at registration and receive your bidder number, drink wrist-band and other information.
6. How can I buy tickets if I don't want to pay with a credit card?
Please contact us at HaycockPTAAuction@gmail.com and we can determine the best way to get payment for your tickets.
7. How can I pay for the items I win at the auction?
You may purchase your items via cash, check or credit card. When you check in at the auction, you will have the opportunity to tell us what method you would like to use to purchase your item(s). If you would like to save time when you check in, you can save your credit card information on our secure system when you purchase your auction ticket(s).
8. What is the preferred method of payment for our items?
We prefer that you pay for items by cash or with a check. The credit cards charge Haycock 3% of total purchases. By paying with cash or a check, you will provide Haycock with an additional 3% profit.
9. When will we receive a printed catalog?
Every household that purchases a ticket to the auction will receive a printed catalog in your child's Tuesday folder on March 3, 2015. Please bring the catalog with you to the auction, as we will not be handing them out onsite.
10. Where is the Knights of Columbus?
Though it has an Arlington address, the Knights of Columbus is just 2 miles from Haycock Elementary School and there is plenty of parking in the parking lot! The address is 5115 Little Falls Road, Arlington, VA 22207.
