If you’re looking for a great way to raise money at your upcoming holiday bonanza, but have the need to do it on a budget then fundraising with auctions is for you! There are several different types of auctions for your special event – we are outlining two of our favorites, raffles that utilize Chinese raffle tickets and for those events that will have a entrance ticket component, our large custom raffle tickets. Both are sure to please and will take your fundraising event to the next level.
Up first, Chinese auctions which are very similar to silent auctions except they have a raffle component added to the mix. Instead of bidding on items by a written bid it is done by using Chinese Raffle tickets. Customers buy a number of tickets for a set price, then use the tickets to bid on the items that are on display by dropping them in a fishbowl next to the item. Each customer can put as many tickets as they want in the fishbowl. Once the auction has ended, the winning ticket for each auction item is drawn and the winner is announced!
If you are looking for raffle tickets that can double as an entrance ticket with a graphic and that can hold more information about your event – our Large Custom Raffle Tickets are perfect! You can upload your logo and text instantly online. There’s a variety of colors to choose from, you can choose an image from our design library or upload your own to complete your ticket. The overall process gives you the flexibility to make your tickets as unique as your event.
Both of these auctions are perfect to use for fundraisers around the holidays, think of the possibilities for raffle fundraisers at schools, galas, art shows, carnivals, and much more. Ticket costs are low compared to the actual value of the auction items so buyers and organizations win big! You can add to the fun by having a theme such as Christmas or New Year’s. And of course, you can create your fantasy theme any time of the year! The possibilities are endless!
YOUR TURN: How could you use these auction tickets to amp up your next fundraiser?
