Consult on Live Auction item selection, item order, and starting bids. We know how to maximize all bidding at your event and will serve as your master of ceremonies (if you choose); handle raffles, drawings, or other important announcements, and introductions.
Direct Cash Appeals
Conduct your Special Appeal, Fund-A-Need or other related direct cash appeal during the Live Auction portion of your event. This crucial portion of your event can raise up to 50-75% (or more) of the proceeds with no effort on your part. We’ll consult and help you structure the most effective way to solicit money from your guests in a sensitive yet direct emotional appeal. If you have never done this type of fundraiser at your event, we will show you how it has been used by hundreds of organizations like yours to bring in tens of thousands of dollars.
Silent Auction Management
Oversee Silent Auction portion of event by advising on starting bids and bid increments; monitoring bid sheets; encouraging active bidding via continuous announcements; and of course, closing all the silent auction sections in a clear, definitive manner to reach full potential of bidding.
Event planning and development meetings; progress consultations and advice (either in-person** or by phone or email)—we’re here to answer your questions!
Train your committees/staff to assist the auctioneer, record bids, register and check-out guests as well as any other auction related duties.
And, of course, we will SELL, SELL, SELL every item to the highest bidder during the Live Auction with our energetic, entertaining and commanding bid calling.
