Justin Swisher works the crowd at a fundraising auction for Fox Elementary School, selling a work of art by one of Richmond’s coolest and most original artists, Ed Trask. This is a great fundraising idea for your next benefit auction.
If you have a great local talented artist, like Ed Trask (from Richmond, Va.). It is always a great fundraising idea to procure their art and sell it at your next benefit auction.
Local artist in particular get the crowd excited and they can add quite a bit of value at fundraisers. This can be beneficial for the artist as well, as it can garner them more exposure to their art work.
Here is an example of Justin Swisher selling at a charity auction for Noah’s Children foundation. The Frederic Remington Bronze Statue was generously donated to the organization by one of the committee members and raised $10,000 for the cause.
The Heads or Tails game is a good fundraising idea before a benefit auction begins. It is a fun way to start a charity auction and motivate guests that may be hesitant to bid in a live auction. It is fun and basically a raffle with a twist and a great way to supplement your auction proceeds.
Here is a real example of Justin Swisher doing the heads or tails game.
