Your charity fundraising auction event may make the largest percentage of its proceeds from the live auction, virtual live gala and fund a need segment, (also known as the direct appeal portion of the event). This most important section of your benefit fundraiser should never be left in the hands of an inexperienced person. Our experienced benefit auctioneers can lead your event either at your venue, streaming online through our real time broadcast module, or both for that matter, where onsite and online bidders can participate concurrently.

Although a radio, or TV personality is generally an outgoing person, charity fundraising auctioneering is a specialized skill that takes years to develop and master. Experience as a benefit fundraising auctioneer is what counts in getting the best possible results for a non-profit organization. A professional auctioneer who is experienced in charity fundraising live auctions will always bring the best results.

At a live auction event, professional benefit auction specialists often furnish trained and experienced bid spotters to help cover the room and generate excitement during bidding volleys between attendees. Bid spotters often interact with attendees encouraging them to bid during the live auction fundraiser.

We understand that it’s all about obtaining the highest bids AND engaging the audience. Our auctioneers are the best in the industry, all seasoned professional bid callers with extensive auction experience. They entertain, as well as inform the audience keeping everything running smoothly. Our auctioneers are always tasteful and courteous.

Understanding how to push for higher bids and knowing when there are no more bids available are critical skills for a professional charity auctioneer. Having playful banter with attendees during the live auction or virtual live gala, without making an attendee uncomfortable is an important skill of professional charity auctioneers

During the “fund a need,” or “special appeal,” your charity auctioneer will professionally and skillfully solicit cash donations from your attendees. Clear, concise and passionate communications combined with an understanding of audiences in a fundraising setting is what sets a professional charity auction bid caller apart from an amateur. An experienced professional charity auctioneer will always bring the best possible results for your event.

An experienced charity auctioneer can also serve as an Emcee during the event for various microphone duties, making announcements throughout the silent and live auction segment promoting your charity auction event. Our Charity auctioneers stay aware and keep track of important components in your timetable, making sure that the crowd is ready at the major moments of your event.

The goals of your auction are of course to raise money as well as create an enjoyable experience for the audience. SCA helps you achieve these goals. Our mobile platform manages the event clerking process, making it all so much easier than ever before reporting to winners on their smartphone of their transactions in real time. With our assistance, you’ll have a fun, exciting and profitable auction,  virtual live gala or onsite & online hybrid event.
