Instructions for Participating in the 2021 Sounds of Tucker Virtual Auction
We’re excited to have you join us our SECOND Sounds of Tucker Virtual Auction. To help you enjoy the auction to its fullest, we have put together a quick “how-to” check list:
Step 1: Register for the Auction. Registration is free, and will allow you to bid on any and all items during each stage of our auction! In this first step, you can also purchase Alaska Airlines Raffle Tickets (to win 2 tickets anywhere Alaska Airlines flies) and wine from the “Wall of Wine.” If you need help registering, we’ve put together a quick tutorial with step-by step instructions.
Step 2: You can browse all Auction Items here. On the left-hand side of the online catalog, you can use the search feature to browse items by category. During this period, you can continue purchasing Alaska Airlines Raffle Tickets and wine.
Step 3: The Virtual live stream auction (https://www.avlaunch.me/tucker) will begin at 5:00 pm sharp on Friday, April 23rd. The live stream link will open at 4:30 p.m. to provide time for you to check sound, connection, and review last minute registration reminders. Don’t forget to make your last-minute bids!
Step 4: To have the best virtual experience for the live stream event, you will need two screens or devices. Get both your laptop and phone out to bid and make donations to the Special Appeal.
Step 5: Let the fun begin! Grab all your creature comforts and settle in for a compelling hour live stream. Staying in your pjs? Excellent! Dressing up, but kicking off those shoes? Fabulous! Surrounding yourself with pizza and snacks? Awesome! Show us how you’re celebrating by taking a selfie and using the hashtag #TheSoundsofTucker2021 on social media.
Any donations made during this virtual event are tax-deductible. You will receive a tax document from us in the coming days. It is more important now than ever before for us to come together as a community. Thank you for helping make this a successful event!
