END OF THE EVENING:
Auction checkout will be available outside the ballroom, so you can pick up your items and settle payment as needed. Feel free to take a program book and any other materials from the table, so you know how to get in touch with us and as a memento for the evening.
While seated during your dinner, you can continue to monitor your favorite auction items and even see what items don't have bids through BidPal. During the first half of the program, before we break for dinner entrée service, you'll hear about HRC's programs and work to advance equality - locally, in your state, in the country, and around the world. You'll also hear a personal story of how HRC's work has made a difference in their lives.
