Live Auctions

A live auction is conducted by interaction between an auctioneer and the audience. If your event’s primary goal is fundraising, this portion of the evening will be the culmination of months of careful planning, item procurement, and carefully selected and displayed premiere items. Let Fundraising Auction Events teach you the importance of selecting the right items for the right crowd, and the critical role that timing and item ordering play in your event.
