About Our Auction

The Marine Academy of Technology and Environmental Science (MATES) is happy to announce their 20th Annual PTSO Gift Auction and our second virtual gift auction.

2-All sales are final. There will be no exchanges or refunds unless otherwise noted. All items are “as is, where is.”
3-MATES PTSO has attempted to describe and catalog items correctly, but neither warrants nor represents and in no event shall be responsible for the correctness of descriptions, genuineness, authorship, provenance or condition of the items. No statement made in this catalog, or made orally at the auction or elsewhere, shall be deemed such a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability.

8-PLEASE CHECK ALL EXPIRATION DATES CAREFULLY. We realize there have been changes due to Covid-19 closings. The PTSO has tried to ensure all establishments in our auction are still in business; however, we are not responsible for any closures. Some establishments have been kind enough to extend their original expiration dates listed.
*Please check websites and call establishments before assuming they are open. MANY MAY NEED APPOINTMENTS, MASKS, or VACCINATIONS to visit.
