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!
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.
