A common question from those planning a virtual gala is how much they should expect to raise from their auction.
If you’ve run an in-person gala in past years, you can use your past yield results to project your revenue. Projections will differ, depending on the type of virtual gala you’ll be hosting.

Your sunk costs are considerably less this year, so you have reduced risk of loss. Moreover, it’s easy to test the waters to see how your audience likes the auction. (Just make sure you hire a savvy auctioneer to ensure your crowd loves the event.)
