- A professional auctioneer can make the difference between a charity event being a blast or simply being boring. Auctioneers are entertainers as much as they are auctioneers. Choose one that has a sense of humor, and generates enthusiasm with the guests of your event.
- It’s best to hire an auctioneer at least 6 months in advance. The good ones book out even further. Check online speaker organizations to find auctioneers in your area.
- Respect the time of the charity attendees by keeping the length of your auction to a reasonable hour. One way to do this is by offering a combination of a live auction and a silent auction at your charity event.
