What are the best items to auction at a fundraising charity event? This is a very common question we are asked over and over again. Let’s investigate.
It really comes down to this one question? What do your guests DESIRE?
Here is a list of the most desirable items we have come across to be the most valued by attendees:
1. “ONE OF A KIND” experiences — Professional Athletic Teams, Superbowl Tickets, Etc.
2. “Chef’s” cooking — Having a chef come to your house and cook for a dinner party
3. “Travel” near and far — Experiences and Trips that are popular with unique destinations with no blackout dates.
4. “Entertainment” speciality — Concert tickets to sold out concerts or events.
5. “Wine and Dining” — Everyone loves a good wine and dining opportunity.
6. “Organization Encounter” — If your organization has a special function, create a package. Check out how a four year old’s art work was a hit at this auction.
7. “Valued Memorabilia“– If your guests want a signed jersey, by all means, auction it.
Here is a great list to keep handy to give to your committee members.
