Ready to make your benefit auction buzzworthy?
Each year, I privately work with about 55 non-profit and school auction committees who decided this was the year they would upgrade their auction.
Some want to raise more money.
Others desperately want to re-energize a tired committee.
A few are simply fed up with their stagnant event.
But all of them recognize the power of having a crowd-pleasing professional representing them onsite at the gala.
When your cause is represented in an articulate, intelligent, and humorous way in front of hundreds of donors and potential big-money supporters, watch donations grow.
What’s needed in a competitive climate is a rainmaker — someone with the right formula, the right creative ideas and the right skill set to make a big difference in the results of your next benefit auction.
I’m Sherry Truhlar, the founder of Red Apple Auctions, and I make your event standout from among the hundreds of charitable events in your community.
As a professional benefit auctioneer and auction educator, I annually work with a select group of clients as their onsite auctioneer. Using my advice before the event, and my personality at the fundraiser, these organizations achieve new records of success.
The compliments and donations pour in.
To give you a sense of how my stage style, which some have described as engaging and personal, below are two videos.
What happens when an item isn’t selling well at your auction? Does the donor get embarrassed or frustrated, never wanting to donate to your nonprofit again?
This nice package just wasn’t getting bids. Watch how I handle it, to ensure it got the bids it deserved.
Crowd engagement is important at a benefit auction. The video quality isn’t strong (it was shot from a guest’s camera), but this gives you a sense of how I will move throughout the crowd to work the room.
Four Taylor Swift concert tickets were being offered.
