Instead, Desert AIDS Project utilizes a Will Call system for guest check-in and table assignments. As guests arrive on the red carpet, they will be greeted by a volunteer host who will inform them of their prearranged table number. This table number assignment will allow guests to enter the lobby and ballroom. Registering for the Live & Silent Auction All guests who wish to bid on auction items must pre-register for the auction at the registration table in the lobby of the convention center. Volunteer registrars will ask the guest for his or her name to issue a bid number. Guests who give us their name in advance when purchasing a seat for the gala will be pre-assigned bid numbers. The registrar will ask for a credit card from the guest to capture credit card information. This credit card information will only be used if the guest has the winning bid on silent auction items or live auction items. This bid number can also be used for our Fund a Need appeal. This payment system allows the guest to receive their winning auction item without standing in large check-out lines at the end of the evening. Winning bidders will be issued a receipt to verify purchase. A signature, address and phone number will be required at time of pick up. 4 ONE DAY, A MESSAGE OF HOPE Fund a Need $1O,OOO • • • • Provides two days of complete support by D.A.P.’s Wells Fargo HIV health center… Will keep D.A.P.’s client community center up and running for 10 days… Or 6 months of the client wellness program… A month of emergency assistance to clients who come to D.A.P. $5,OOO • Provides 4 days of dental services … • 20 Months of permanent housing support … • A month of prescription medications not covered by any other source … $1,OOO • Can house 2 clients for a month … • 100 Transportation vouchers to help clients reach D.A.P. … • 77 Test kits keeping people safe with free and confidential HIV testing… • Helps maintain the food depot as well as provide food vouchers on a weekly basis. If you can help us out with a pledge of $500, for the food depot, which does such wonderful work distributing fresh produce every month, as well as food vouchers on a weekly basis. Just three donations of $500 each could assure fresh produce for a month for dozens of clients! You know that the California state budget cut more than $80 million from HIV and AIDS programs and services. It wiped out almost the entire education and prevention department at D.A.P. But as you also know, “it’s not over!” Education and testing is essential to containing the spread of HIV and getting those into care who may not know they have it! Your donation of $250 would buy 17 test kits and help D.A.P. maintain its commitment to keeping HIV testing free and confidential! That’s absolutely essential here in the Coachella Valley, where the HIV infection rate averages more than almost three times that of the national average.
