It’s always fun to go to an event that will hold a live or silent auction. If you are planning one of these types of events, but you aren’t sure what you’d like to auction off, here are our tops picks. These will be sure to raise money. These types of auctions can be used to raise money for charities, businesses, or donations to local clubs and organizations. In this article we will give you some ideas so you have a better idea of what you’d like to do.

Travel Packages

People usually will save up their money or have a traveling budget throughout the year. Auctioning off something such as a trip to a place where people normally wouldn’t travel, or a place that is more expensive to travel to would cause higher bids.

Once In A Lifetime Experiences

Auctioning off a once in a lifetime experience will be sure to get good bids. This would include things such as meeting a celebrity, traveling somewhere exotic, or getting to be on a television show. These are all things that would excite the crowd and encourage them to want to win, which will make them bid higher.

Electronics Packages

People sometimes aren’t willing to buy the most recent cell phones or computers on their own. Most people won’t purchase new things like that because they are so expensive, and sometimes may break the bank if a new one is needed. Auctioning off newer items will encourage people to want to bid more.

Event Tickets

Everyone loves going to concerts or sporting events. A great way to raise money is to auction off tickets to events like these. Good sporting events like football, baseball, basketball or hockey would all be something to urge someone to bid. Concerts for popular artists or bands that would be good for families to attend together or a couple to go to on a date night are all perfect ideas to get tickets to that would raise money during an auction.

Local Business Package

This can start by someone gathering gift cards or gift items from local businesses in the area. You can go to places such as a local boutique and find pieces of unique jewelry, candles, or accessories. A restaurant will be useful for a family that would like to spend more time together, or a couple who would like a date night. Wherever you decide to go to put this package together, remember that the items need to be somewhat generic, as picking out things like clothes or shoes might not work since people are different sizes. This will help support those businesses as well as the local economy by encouraging people to shop or eat at the places that are in the package.
