Everyone knows that attending a charity auction can be fun. But can organizing an auction be enjoyable, too? In his book, Everything You Need to Know to Raise Money (and Have Fun) with a Charity Auction, Robert Baird shows it can indeed be gratifying AND highly profitable as well.Granted, pulling together an auction isn’t as easy as raising your hand and making a bid. Before the gavel is raised, there are scores of decisions to make and myriad details to decide upon.Volunteer auctioneer or professional auctioneer? Theme or no theme? Live auction, silent auction, or both? And these don’t even scratch the surface (will you serve alcohol? will you accept credit cards? will your event be casual or formal?).Still, with the right mix of sanguine people, the many tasks you face won’t be onerous at all, says Baird.In utterly clear language, and in bite-sized morsels, Baird walks you sequentially through each step you need to follow to carry off a rousingly successful event.From the first chapter, “Is a Charity Auction Right for You,” to the last, “The Big Night,” Baird securely holds your hand to make sure you know what to do at every juncture. But Baird doesn’t stop there. He wants to absolutely, positively assure your success. So he offers a 54-page appendix that provides samples of every single thing you need. A sampling of the 22 appendix items includes: 11 checklists for everything from the room setup to the sound system to cleanup; four pages of gift ideas; a sample financial statement; a sample invitation; and a sample check-in sheet to use as guests arrive.With Everything You Need to Know to Raise Money (and Have Fun) with a Charity Auction as your blueprint, your event, like the bids you attract, will soar beyond your expectations.
