I often attend different auction events for many different charities by donating my small contribution to those that need help. I’m very happy to be part of many different communities. 我经常参与到以不同慈善名义筹措的拍卖活动中,为那些亟需帮助的人尽我的绵薄之力。能积极地成为社区的一份子,我感到很快乐。 Gold-of-Heart-01-1024x686 432 Today I wanted to share the concept of silent auction. It is a fundraising technique frequently used at many different charity events. It differs from typical auction that is conducted by an auctioneer who calls out the prices that are bid on the items and takes the raised hands or paddles of people as they bid. 今天,我想要和你们分享无声拍卖这个概念。这是一种在许多慈善活动中常见的助兴手段。无声拍卖有别于传统的拍卖形式,传统拍卖通常由一名拍卖师对竞拍的商品叫价,有意者通过举手或拍板竞价。而无声拍卖则大相径庭。 silent-auction-clip Auction-Ritz-Carlton Buying-at-Auction-_2696079b Silent auction is conducted by setting up tables and displays of the items that are up for bid and those who want to participate in the bid writes their name down and bid. 无声拍卖会把标的商品陈列在桌上展示供出价,想要加入竞价的人则写下他们的名字和所出的价格。 Silent-Auction-4_1 seattle-sports-memorabilia-auction-photo-825x550 Each item up for the auction has a bidding sheet and on the sheet, you can see the item’s description, starting bid, and minimum bid increase, along with item value, and auction closing time. A minimum bid maybe set, especially when the item is of high value. 每个拍品都会有竞价单,上面罗列了物品的描述、起价、最低加价金额,以及价值和拍卖结束时间。尤其当物品价值比较高时,会设有拍卖底价。 silent-auction-03 You enter in the bid by writing down your full name, contact information, and the bid amount on the bidding sheet. 您只需在单子上写下全名、联系方式、以及愿意出的价格就算参与竞拍了。 samplebidsheet The valid bid must adhere to the minimum bid increase and exceed the minimum bid. You can bid as many times as you would like until the closing time in order to outbid the previous bidder. 有效的竞价必须遵循最低标准加价,且要高于底价。在结束前,您可以多次出价,直到价格超过在你之前竞拍人的最高出价。 silent-auction-620 At closing, an organizer would call your name and you are the winner of the auction with instructions to claim your item. 在拍卖结束时,组织方会通报最终赢得拍品的人的名字,以及取得拍品的手续。 auction When the payment has been made, you will receive the items. All the proceeds go to those who are in need of help. 一旦付款手续完成,您就能拿到商品。所有拍卖收益都会用于帮助那些有困难的人。 auction-4 01 Please join in these events and support those in need and have fun! 请加入到这样有的活动中吧,帮助那些需要帮助的人,也感受一下无声拍卖的乐趣! angela-signature2-a-moved-out
