Special Notice Regarding Traffic & Parking
On Saturday night, there are several events occurring downtown Louisville. Due to this, we anticipate heavy traffic and crowded parking options near the convention center. For convenience, we are opening check-in at 5:30 pm for those who wish to arrive early. Valet parking (located on West Market Street), will also open at 5:30pm. We highly encourage guests to use ride-share options like Uber, Lyft, taxis, and/or carpooling.
Paid parking options are also available in the Commonwealth Garage located off Jefferson Street. However, the parking fees associated with this garage will NOT be covered by the Heart Ball
Upon arrival, please check-in with event staff for your bidding information & table number. Check-in stations will be located at the West Market Street entrance to the convention center, in the lobby/pre-function space.
At check-in, staff & volunteers will be confirming/capturing your mobile number and email address, as well as offering the opportunity to register your credit/debit card for any auction purchases or donations you make during the evening. Save yourself a trip back to the auction check-out area at the end of the night!
The Louisville Heart Ball utilizes mobile bidding for our silent auction so be sure to bring your cell phone fully charged! This fun and exciting technology allows more time to bid as well as more time to mingle! Please keep in mind that all bidding will be done via phones (no paper bid sheets) and there will be Bid Assistants available to help & answer any questions.
A few helpful tips for online bidding:
- The bidding link you receive is specific to you. Please do not forward your bidding link to other guests. If your friend is also attending the event and did not receive a text and/or email, we may not have their contact information. Please have them contact Lindsay.Simpson@heart.org to register/confirm their information.
- If you received only an email but not a text, please contact Lindsay Simpson to verify your information.
If you have any special needs or dietary restrictions, please contact Lindsay Simpson at Lindsay.Simpson@heart.org so that we may do our best to ensure your needs are met.
