We have just hours until our 14th Annual Pat Schroeder Virtual Event begins!

Thank you for supporting the Arapahoe County Democrats. I wanted to take a moment and review how our auction and donation opportunities will work for our event.

Through the information provided in this email you will be able to sign in to our special auction site using either your email address or your bid number which was texted to you. You can access our auction site. Register now and even start bidding on some of your favorite items!

The first time you log in, the site will ask for your credit card information. This is kept completely private and is only used if you win an auction item, choose to buy a "buy now" auction item, or place a donation commitment during the paddle raise or at any time throughout the evening. Entering your information now makes the auction closing much more seamless. If you do win an auction item, we will get that delivered to you after the auction.

Please note that certain order items like our "my ballot" Tshirt will be delivered once we have received your customized selections. Our silent auction will close 30 minutes after the end of the live event, giving our guests time to continue to browse items after the keynote address.

Our auction site works great on a smart phone or tablet - it is a mobile website so no app to download! We recommend using a separate device during the live event so that you can dedicate your computer to the webinar event (your link to our Zoom event was sent in a separate email). When you place a bid or follow an item, you will get text updates if someone outbids you, so that you can respond quickly to stay on top of items. You can also choose to follow an item without placing a bid.

We are excited to announce that during our live auction you can bid on 1:1 virtual time with our own Congressman Jason Crow and Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser! These are great opportunities to talk about the pressing issues facing our state and country.

If you missed our Keynote Speaker Congresswoman Katie Porter grilling the Postmaster General on Monday - don't worry. We'll have her live tomorrow during our event to get her take on the hearing.

As you may know, this event is critical to our Get Out The Vote efforts. Throughout the evening ... and especially during our Paddle Raise ... you can donate to our party by using the green Donate button at the top of the Auction Site.red arr

Thank you for supporting our fundraiser and our efforts to Get Out The Vote in November.

If you need any assistance logging into our auction site, please email our event tech support at auction@arapahoedems.org.
