We Put the FUN Back into Fundraising | AUCTION EVENT
Your Art Auction Fundraising Event will be an enjoyable, well-coordinated and profitable event for your organization. Your organization will provide the location for the auction, a handful of volunteers, arrange for the refreshments and sell tickets for the event. HFA does the rest!!
Your Art Auction Fundraising event begins with a one-hour preview where your guests can view an impressive variety of artwork, sports memorabilia and jewelry. We create an inviting display, and recommend that you serve refreshments such as: wine and cheese, coffee and cake, hot or cold hors d’oeuvres, complimentary beverages and/or a cash bar. The preview hour is a time for browsing and socializing, and our skilled auctioneer is available to discuss the displayed works, and answer any questions your guests may have.
Immediately following the preview, we begin the live auction, which generally runs from two to two and one half hours. Our own professional, entertaining and experienced auctioneers are trained to provide a fun-filled and informative auction in a relaxed atmosphere. The auction will offer 120-170 customized items, in all price ranges, with many opening bids under $100.
Each item will be presented and offered for sale during the live fundraiser auction at a pre-determined minimum bid and will be sold to the highest bidder. We understand that your guests are not experienced bidders, and many of them will be attending an auction for the first time. The auctioneer will engage the crowd, entertain them and ensure that everyone has a wonderful time. Our job is to gently compel your guests to support your organization, by providing wonderful quality custom framed artwork and memorabilia to your guests in exchange for their donations.
HFA staff will deliver auction items to your art auction four hours prior to the start of your event. They will work hand in hand with your volunteers to creatively display the works of art and collectibles prior to the auction, coordinate the flow during the auction, and distribute sold pieces of art at the conclusion of the auction. They, along with the auctioneer, will ensure a seamless presentation and will make sure that you and your guests have a wonderful experience.
A Hamilton Fundraiser Auction ensures a profitable, entertaining and enjoyable social event that your guests will look forward to year after year. The proof of our success is that the majority of our auctions are scheduled for the following year, they become annual events and the profits grow year after year.
