Why is a benefit auction a great way to make money for your charity?
Benefit auctions are a fun, flexible, and financial rewarding way to raise money for your charity. Patrons open their pocketbooks quickly to bid on items at the auction! At a benefit auction, you are not just asking people to write checks, they are getting the opportunity to bid on exciting items in a fun competitive atmosphere. Perfectly functional as a standalone event or an easy addition to your already existing gala, meeting, awards or recognition event, benefit auctions get crowds engaged and returning year after year.
Why hire a professional auctioneer to run your benefit auction?
Before we get started explaining the benefits of a professional auctioneer, ask yourself this question: for your important event, do you cook your own food or hire a caterer? You hire a caterer because you want a professional in charge of this important element of your event. Then why would you put the most important part of the event, raising money, in the hands of an amateur?
Many groups planning benefit auctions that do not hire a professional auctioneer just have not been to a benefit auction with a top-notch professional auctioneer. A great professional auctioneer’s chant, industry language for their speedy talking, is rhythmic, exciting and brings an element of entertainment to your benefit auction. When bidders get excited, hands start flying in the air, and money starts flying into your charity’s coffers! Miller & Co. Auctions has been conducting benefit auctions regularly since 2001.
