Auctions and More for Fund Raising Events

If you are trying to put together a fund raising event to help make money for a particular cause, you will discover that having an auction is not only a fun way to raise money but it also helps to bring the community together in a fun event while they are also helping out a worthy cause. Auctions that are live or silent are a great way to bring in the money you need for your worthy cause. By getting a variety of donated things you auction can have anything it from sporting memorabilia to different services offered by companies in your area.

Auctions are a great venue to include in any charity event to help raise money. By taking the items donated you can sell them at reasonable prices giving the bidder a good deal and giving you much needed money. Try getting items by calling a lot of different local businesses that include products and/or services. You also might want to contact any professional sports teams that you might have in town and see if they can't donate tickets to auctioned off, you can also get in touch with any college sports programs you have in town and do the same thing. Maybe even the pro teams can donate helmets, jerseys and other items that might even be autographed.

You can hold a charity auction as a normal outdoor live auction complete with an auctioneer or it can be a silent auction that usually takes place indoors with the items display with bid sheets that the bidder can place their bid on.

Other things you can include in a charity event is a bake sale. Get the entire community involved by asking them to donate homemade baked goods where all of the proceeds will go to your cause you are trying to get money for. If you announce this at your church or even on a local radio station you'd be amazed at how many people are drawn to bake sales.

Another good thing is a charity dinner, silent auctions go hand in hand with charity dinners. If you want to have a setting where everyone from the community can mingle together this is a great way to do so. You can come up with an overall price for the tickets and then sell tickets to the event. If the cause is something big, you might even be able to get local celebrities to come that will draw more attention to your event.

Another thing you might consider would be getting in touch with your local radio station and see if they would be willing to allow you to have a radio telethon for your charity's cause. There are a lot of times that radio stations will love to get involved with things like this. Some may charge you a fee while others may not and they may consider the airtime they are giving their donation.
