Winning bid $2,150
Leading up to the highly anticipated Westlake Boys Father Son Breakfast with All Blacks Manager Darren Shand on Thursday 7th July, we proudly offer you the chance to purchase an extraordinary All Blacks keepsake. We have been very fortunate to secure the latest All Blacks jersey, signed by the 2016 All Blacks team in the week leading up to the Steinlager Series test win against Wales at Eden Park. The framed jersey will make for a significant piece of All Blacks history for your home, office or sports club and will be for sale in a ‘Silent Email Auction’ leading up to the morning of the Father Son Breakfast.
Who has made it possible for us to offer this special auction item?
The All Blacks jersey was generously donated by our guest speaker Darren Shand and the All Blacks Team and it has been professionally framed by Factory Frames Mairangi Bay. Please support them for all your framing needs.
All funds raised from the silent auction will benefit the Westlake Boys Distance Runners and Westlake Boys Cycling Team.
For information on how to participate in the silent auction of this exciting item, see below:
What is a ‘Silent Email Auction’?
The Silent Email Auction is an auction variant of the English auction in which bids are emailed to the event organiser. At the predetermined end of the auction (see below), the highest listed bidder wins the jersey.
How to get your hands on the 2016 Signed All Blacks Jersey?
To become the proud owner of the framed 2016 All Blacks jersey, please email your bid(s) to Christine O’Dowd on [email protected] before 5pm on Wednesday 6th July.
You’ve made your bid, now what?
