Silent Auction Jewelry: Necklaces- Great, Bracelets-Great, Earrings-Great, Rings-Not So Much!
Women love to show off their winnings, let them wear their new pieces out the door and brag about them to their friends, not have to put it back in the box to take to a jeweler for re-sizing.
Or for example, we were supporting an organization on Derby day and they posted in their program that their silent auction closed 10 minutes after the running of the derby, which was a good thing, because the Derby wasn't exactly on schedule! #AmFundFundraisingTipTree
Let the best horse win! Fundraising at the fabulous Oaks farm in Lake City for Haven Hospice. We were especially excited to have supported this wonderful cause less than a month ago at another event in Alachua, Florida.
Over the last 18 years of fundraising for worthy nonprofits, we have found "The Magic Formula" for a successful silent auction that will avoid bargain shopping of your silent auction items and raise you the more funds for your cause. For Example: 400 attendees, there will be about 200 "Buying Units", which should result in no more than 50 items to generate higher bids on each item.
