The online auction for the Bucks on the Street has been underway for more than a week and will continue until midnight on Dec. 31. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Livable Buckhead’s greenspace work.
The Bucks are a hit at their current home at Lenox Square Mall, and shoppers have stopped to strike poses for photos with their favorites.
The starting bid for each buck is $250, and each eight-foot statue has a “buy-it-now” price of $5,000. If a winning bid exceeds $1,000, the amount above that is a charitable donation and is tax deductible. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Livable Buckhead, a nonprofit organization that is leading an effort to increase greenspace throughout Buckhead.
More details about the auction:
- Winning bidders will be notified by email
- Winning bidders are responsible for picking up the bucks after the auction is closed (specific dates/times TBD)
A portion of your bid may be tax deductible. The fair market value of each buck is $1,000. Any bid/donation above that amount is a charitable donation and is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
