Art to the Rescue - Sterling Event Space - Denver

We may not be able to change the world, but we have changed the worlds of over 400 horses here in Colorado. The smiles on the faces of the horses’ forever families & the way that these wonderful creatures flourish is art to Drifter’s Hearts of Hope (DHOH). The unity of horse rescue and artistic expression inspired Art to the Rescue, an event that empowers both artists and patrons alike to give back to the horse community. Better yet, our very own rescue horses are the inspiration behind many of these works of art! We invite you to attend Art to the Rescue in support of our mission: rescuing, rehabilitating & rehoming at-risk horses. The event is a curated show featuring nationally & internationally acclaimed artists, heavy appetizers, an open bar & better yet, all of the proceeds go directly to helping us help more horses. Since DHOH is a fully donation, sponsorship and grant funded 501(c)(3) organization run exclusively by volunteers, the horses greatly appreciate your generosity!

DHOH’s Art to the Rescue will be using HANDBID, a mobile and online silent auction platform which allows you to bid from your smartphone, or laptop, from anywhere! This also means you can start bidding as soon as the auction opens whether you are at the gallery or not (make sure to let your out-of-town friends know!).If you’d rather bid online and not through the Handbid app, you can access our auction here, when we open it up: https://events.handbid.com/auctions/art-to-the-rescue-2019If you are attending our event at the gallery, please note we will also have iPads at the event for you to bid on as well. Here's how the smartphone app works:STEP 1: DOWNLOAD THE HANDBID APP If you have an iPhone or Android, you can download the Handbid app from either the Apple iTunes App Store (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/handbid/id433831139) or the Google Play store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.handbid.android).Please note we strongly recommend you “Accept notifications from this app” when you open it and join an auction. This will allow you to get push notifications for “Outbid” messages during the auction.STEP 2: TAP 'GET STARTED' & CREATE ACCOUNTNext, you can create an account. From the App home screen, tap on “GET STARTED” button and complete the information (please use your cell phone as the phone number). Tap NEXT. Handbid will then text you a 5 digit code.
