Silent Auctions

We Design Silent Auctions & Raffle Programs

Silent auctions and raffle programs designed by DiNardo & Lord AuctioneersWe are often asked, “How do we create record setting raffle programs and silent auctions for our fundraising auction?” It is true that only 5% to 10% of the total bidders in the audience that makes up your benefit auction’s most viable live auction bidders. That leaves 95% to 90% of your fundraising auction attendees as viable targets for your nonprofits fundraising efforts.

Most of charity auction clients are truly surprised when we inform them that during a silent auction typically only 25% of the total audience (your bidders) will render a bid of any kind during the silent auction!  The follow-up question we are asked next is, “How do get the other 75% of the special event fundraiser attendees to spend additional money at our event?” How do we coax these individuals into contributing more money other than the ticket price? Aside from creating a record setting silent auction, a good benefit auction will also include a custom design raffle program.
