A benefit auction, well planned and smoothly orchestrated can raise thousands of dollars and increase donor loyalty. Even in this challenging economy, our clients have achieved amazing breakthrough results. One key common denominator is no mystery: Superb Pre-Auction Planning.
My favorite organizing secret: schedule every single Auction Committee meeting for the entire year. Ask everyone to write each date and time in their calendar during your very first get together. (This tip alone makes you super productive and saves hours of crazy scheduling.)

Kathy gave me some wonderful insights on how to raise more funds during an event and ways to keep your audience captivated. I will certainly use what I've learned with others in my organization. Thank you again!"
