Do you have a corporate, social, or fundraising event coming up in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, or Hong Kong? Add a Helping Hand Group silent and live auction component and our team will donate to your auction list TWO Hunter Valley Lodge holiday packages valued at a total of $8,000! The DOUBLE holiday package prize includes two separate vouchers each for a 4-night stay for 8 people at the beautiful Hunter Valley Lodge.

Multiple Live Auction Sale of Jerseys Raises SGD$26,000

SOLD…and SOLD once more!

At times, Helping Hand Group can supply multiples of an auction item for fundraisers. This provides an opportunity for your live auctioneer to sell more than one of a particular item on your auction list. In a standard live fundraising auction, the auctioneer can work with two, three or more of the same auction item – whether it is a holiday package or limited set of signed memorabilia – to engage with the group of top bidders. When the bidding has reached the maximum point, the auctioneer can announce each of the top bidders (matching the number of multiples available) as winners. This can significantly boost funds raised for your cause!

Richard Ernster, Live Fundraising Auctioneer

Recently in Singapore at the VANDA White Boxing event, two sets of Pele and Maradona jerseys were available on auction – and both were sold in an exciting finish to the live auction. This resulted in SGD$26,000 instantly added to the total fundraised on the night!

Helping Hand Group’s program – Last Donor Standing – can also bring about multiple sales of a particular auction item for fundraisers. This program gets the whole room involved by having the auctioneer ask all guests to stay standing through rounds of bidding for an item while increasing the asking price until it sells. The last group of guests standing each win one of the items at the top bidding price announced.

Contact our team to learn more about how we can arrange multiples for your next fundraising event.

Helping Hand Group New Auction Item for Fundraiser Sydney Cruise on Yacht

Do you need a special item to drive a more interesting and effective fundraising auction? Our team is always looking for new and exciting auction items for fundraisers and we are proud to announce a brand-new experience package, available now.

Experience packages can offer a unique, stand-out touch to your live or silent auction. This can conjure interest from more guests to encourage participation in your auction and result in more funds raised for your cause.

More about this new item:

Your auction winner will enjoy an incredible day for eight guests on a new luxury yacht. A delicious on-board lunch or afternoon tea will be served, including champagne, beer, wine and soft drinks. After a short briefing, the group can learn how to hoist and trim the sails or just chill out on the deck. Departing from Rushcutters Bay in the East, the group will set sail for a taste of the mighty Pacific Ocean! They will be fascinated by the view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House whilst sailing on to amazing beaches for lunch and perhaps a swim. The cruise returns back to Rushcutters Bay, after four full hours.

As always, we can offer all of our auction items with no cost to your event budget (consignment). Contact our team for more information, terms, and conditions, and how to add this package to your next fundraising auction.
