Why conduct a Benefit Auction? Benefit Auctions are one of the hottest trends in the fundraising industry at the moment. Consider any fundraiser your organization might have utilized in the past, and now consider the real revenue earning possibilities. If a live Benefit Auction is conducted correctly it can realize upwards of 67% percent of your event's entire income. The other third (33%) of the revenue generated is from the combined total of ticket sales, in combination with a silent auction, raffles, or other revenue generating devices utilized.
