Welcome to Independence Academy’s fourth annual on-line auction. One hundred percent of the proceeds will stay with us and help with the building of our BRAND NEW SCHOOL! Any of the items you see here can also be viewed at the live event, which will be held at the school (located in Grand Junction, CO) on Thursday, April 24 in conjunction with our school-wide art show and FREE dinner! Be sure to check out the school website and the newsletters going home or you can contact the school for more information so you don’t miss out on this great evening.
Here’s some general information about this site and the auction:
Both the on-line and live event will end promptly at 7:00 pm on April 24. If you want to bid on an item, you will need to create an account that includes general information so that we can contact you if you win the item. The Sign-Up link is at the top right hand side of the page. Please note that if you created an account last year, you will not be able to access it and will need to create a new account. All items have a minimum starting bid, and that is shown on the item pages. The auction site will not allow you to bid less than the minimum, so if it does not ask you to confirm your bid once you have made it, that it most likely the issue. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us an email, or, for faster service, call Lisa at 970-361-5968.
If you are attending the live event, you may pay for and take your items home with you that evening. If you cannot attend the live event, please contact the school to make arrangements to pick up your items within seven days of the auction. (The office will be open for part of Friday, April 25. Please call ahead for times). Please note that shipping charges are NOT included in your bid amount. We can accept cash, checks, or payments via PayPal. Refer to the detailed contact and payment instructions elsewhere on this site for more information.
You can make cash donations or donate items for the auction up until the day of the auction. Just contact the office or Lisa (970-361-5968) for further information. We are a non-profit organization and will be glad to provide you a letter of donation upon request.
Finally, a big THANK YOU to all the businesses and individuals who donated items to help make this event possible. Please feel free to pass along this website to your friends and family and happy bidding!
