Win a once in a lifetime opportunity for eight to attend the 2025 PGA Sentry Tournament of Champions including a week at a luxurious villa on the 8th hole, first class air and ground transportation and everything that Maui has to offer


Q: How will the auction work?

A: You can submit bids online at www.parktheatertrust.org/maui-auction beginning Wednesday, May 1st at 8AM. The leading bids and bid history (consisting of only first name and the initial of last name) will be updated on that page whenever a new bid is entered. The largest bid as of Wednesday, May 14th at 8PM will win the package.

The bidder will submit their name and contact information, their initial bid, and, optionally, a maximum bid that can be applied on their behalf. You will not need to submit any form of payment with the bid, but by bidding, you are confirming that you are willing and able to pay for the Maui vacation if you end up the winner.

You may bid as many times as you want while the auction is open. The Park Theater Trust reserves the right to make the final determination of the winner. We suggest not waiting until the very last minute as we are not responsible for technical glitches or internet connectivity issues that may impede a very late bid from getting in on time.


Q: What if I want to combine multiple people/families on a bid?

A: One person should bid for the entire group. If your bid is the winning bid, we can accept multiple checks if you wish to divide the total cost by the number of people/couples/families going. 


Q: What are the dates of the vacation?

A: The Sentry Tournament will be Thursday, January 2nd through Sunday, January 5th, 2024. The home will be available for a 7-day period that includes those dates. You can start your vacation time prior to January 2nd and spend New Year’s Day at the home, but that is up to you and your schedule.


Q: If I end up winning the auction, how will I pay for it?

A: We will accept one or more checks equal to the total amount of the winning bid within 72 hours of the end of the auction. We may be able to accept a credit card payment for a portion of the winning bid, but a 3% service charge will be added to the bid amount to cover the cost of the credit card processing.


Q: My bid was not the winning bid – am I out of luck?

A: If we have not received payment from the winning bidder after 72 hours from the end of the auction, we will declare that winning bid void and contact the next highest bidder. 


Q: I won the auction and paid for it, but due to circumstances beyond my control, I cannot make the trip. What are my options? 

A: The winning bid is considered a donation to the Park Theater Trust and is non-refundable. However, we will work closely with you and the generous donor who provided the house and all the other amenities to ensure the trip can happen in some fashion. However, we do ask that you make every effort to go during the timeframe specified. It will be a truly magical time in Maui!


Q: How do I confirm the details of the airline tickets, how the car loan will work, etc.? 

A: If you are the winning bidder we will work closely with you to book the flights and help coordinate the usage of the house, car, and golf cart. We are committed to making this trip an amazing experience for you and all members of your travel party. Do note that travel delays and weather can be unpredictable and we cannot be held responsible for those and similar events.


Q: I am very interested in the house and airplane tickets, but I don’t have any interest in the golf tournament. Can I get a discount?

A: The auction is for the entire package and it is up to you if and how you use each component. You are not obligated to go to the golf tournament, but the cost will be the same.


Q: Is the winning bid tax-deductible?

A: The value of the package is estimated at $75,000. (Similar homes in the area rent for $60,000 during that week.) If the winning bid amount is over $75,000, then the amount in excess of $75,000 may be tax deductible, but as always, consult your tax professional.


Q: I have other questions not on this list.

A: Feel free to contact kathy@parktheatertrust.org or tracey@parktheatertrust.org if you have any other questions or comments. This is a truly fabulous way to support the Park Theater renovation and enjoy a magical time in a very special place. We hope you will consider bidding on this once-in-a-lifetime package.
