Only ten days to go!
Nine if you’re reading this on Friday.
We are incredibly excited to host what is set to be a stunning and memorable night. But let’s remember this is more than just an awesome party.
It’s a celebration going back years – 115 to be exact – honouring the generosity of the families and friends who have worked tirelessly to support the ongoing growth of Waverley College.
It’s also our chance to positively influence the learning experiences of thousands of students, both current and future, all while having the time of your life. You don’t have to wait to start getting involved in all this frenzied excitement.
The auction platform is officially open, so you can start bidding on some great things which have been donated by the most generous of College parents and friends.
LIVE AUCTION: Commission free house sale
Thinking of selling your house soon? Then we have the perfect auction item for you!
Our top auction item is a commission free house sale from Adrian Bo, Old Boy and top-selling agent at McGrath. One lucky bidder will have the opportunity to acquire Mr Bo’s services for a fraction of their usual price. The winning bid will be donated to Waverley College and Mr Bo will manage the sale of your property at zero commission
Real estate commission usually falls between 1.5% and 2%. A house worth $2.5 million could set you back as much as $50,000.
Not ready to sell? No problem. You have 18 months to use Mr Bo’s services and the commission free sale can be transferred to a friend or family member. The full terms and conditions can be downloaded here. (Pease read them before you bid.)
Bidding is now open until 6:30pm on Saturday 4 August. Live bidding will commence on this item at the Blue and Gold Ball at 9pm. The highest silent bid will become the reserve for the item at this time.
If you are not attending the ball and would like to be an absentee bidder on the night, please contact Jennifer Divall, Marketing Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other major live and silent auction items can be found on www.blueandgold.com.au so keep checking for updates.
