who do i make the cashiers check out to at a trustee sale

i know i need to have either cash or cashier’s check to purchase at a trustee sale. Who do I make the check out to? When going to the bank, they require that I put a recipient of the Cashier’s Check in order to order it.

thank you.

I just came back from an auction in which my cashiers check was made out to me was refused by the trustee. Any comment on this?
