Buyers will have until March 19, 2021, inclusively, to indicate to the following charitable organizations of their wish to benefit from this charitable contribution deduction. With respect to Lot 60, buyers may contact the Cancer Research Institute, Inc. in writing by sending an email to events@cancerresearch.org, and with respect to Lot 41, buyers may contact RxART in writing by sending an email to Megan_Skidmore@RxART.net. Bidders are advised to consult with their own tax advisors to determine the application of the tax law to their own specific circumstances and whether a charitable contribution deduction is available. Buyers of all such Lots are advised to discuss their particular tax circumstances with their independent tax advisors, including residency eligibility under applicable laws to determine if a charitable deduction for any lot is available in any jurisdiction outside the United States.
