Ever wonder why you do auctions at your events? Do they generate enough revenue for the hassle? Learn all the secrets of success with fundraising auctions from veteran fundraiser and president of Pacific Auction Company, Steven Godfryd. PAC supports well over 200 charity auctions per year and Steven is one of the most sought after auctioneers in California.
Are auctions right for your organization? Megan Morrow of Megavents Productions will explain how to evaluate the pros and cons of doing auctions, choosing auctions versus raffles, and how to be strategic with auctions as part of an overall fundraising plan.
