We want to revisit our post on attracting “power bidders” to your fundraising auction. Kathy Kingston of The Kingston Auction Company recommends positioning your live auction as a major networking event and getting your Board members involved.
It's critical to attract and engage supporters who can generously support your cause. Kathy writes a few reasons why folks don’t come to your event: 1) They weren’t personally asked, 2) They don’t think they’ll know anyone, and 3) They don’t think they’ll have fun. One simple, personal phone call can fix all that.
See Kathy's additional tips on procuring a stellar guest list for your next fundraising auction event!
