Gala & Auction Kickoff
Less Than 5 Days Until…the 41st Annual Golden Civic Foundation Gala and Auction on November 12 at the Denver West Marriott!
The Gala and Auction is only five days away and we’re excited about what we have in store for you at the event! As you may know, we sold out of the Gala & Auction four weeks before the event so we’re positively overwhelmed with such great support from our community! This communication confirms that you have a ticket to this event however if, for whatever reason, you cannot attend, we’d be happy to buy back your ticket since we have a long list of folks on our waiting list.
The following are a few important announcements:
1. Plan Your Evening!
Plan to arrive at the Gala & Auction at 5pm for cocktails, networking and to bid on silent auction items. We have a fantastic program, dinner and live auction in store for you starting at 6:30pm. After the live auction, we won’t let the dust settle under your feet too long and hope you stick around and enjoy our live 80s band, 6 Million Dollar Band, that will start at 9:30pm!
If you are interested in making the most of the night, we have secured a special rate of $109/night through the Marriott. There are only a limited number of rooms available so make sure to call the Marriott directly (303-279-9100) and let them know you are attending the Golden Civic Foundation’s event so that you can secure our special rate.
2. Strategize on the Live Auction Items!
It’s official – They’re all in!!…Click here for a list of the exciting and unique live auction items that will be featured at the event.
3. Ready, Set, Go! … Mobile Bidding Starts on Thursday, November 10!
We’ll be sending you a link on Thursday to register and start bidding on the over $75,000 worth of fantastic items from the comfort of your own home. You can set maximum bids on the items you want as well as continue to bid on these items at the event until 7:45pm.
As we embark with this new technology, check out our website to start getting familiar with mobile bidding. This website includes many frequently asked questions as well as gives you an overview of what to expect. And please don’t worry about the change in technology this year – we’ll have over 30 volunteers (wearing green aprons) there with tablets to be your personal bidding assistant. Let us know at check-in if you think you may need help and we’ll take care of the technology piece for you. If you haven’t done so already, please email us your email and mobile numbers.
We’ll be emailing and texting you on Thursday, November 10 to let you know that we’ve opened the silent auction for bidding. Meanwhile, always feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions.
