Our Fundraising Strategy
- Getting To Know Your Event
B.B. Authenticated offers you a turn-key fundraising strategy that is one-of-a-kind, tailored to the specific needs of your event and guests in attendance.
Our expert staff is experienced in running a variety of charity auction fundraising events. These events include: Gala Dinners, Golf Tournaments, Corporate Dinners, Sports Team Banquets and any other event where an auction would be present. We meticulously gather all the relevant information provided to us about your event and guests in attendance. Our primary goal is to raise as much money as we can for your charity by designing an ideal fundraising strategy that is geared toward your needs.
- Your Donated Auction Items
If your group has donated items, we are more than happy to include them in the auction and manage the printing of bid sheets and the entire auction set up. Your group will retain 100% of the selling price of all donated items less the agreed upon auction management fee set ahead the event. Please get in touch with one of our auction specialists for further information.
- Setting Up & Running The Auction
Once we've gathered all the information needed to understand your guests' and event demographics, we will supply the auction with very unique items and experience packages that are sure to WOW your guests. Just think what pizzazz and prestige a beautiful pair of sparkling diamond stud earrings or a hand-signed Rolling Stones guitar would do for your auction! Our items are a wonderful complement to any auction program and are always a major topic of conversation.
We specialize in not only unique hand-signed memorabilia items but a full line of home décor, artwork, jewellery as well as one of a kind life experience packages. So when the men of the crowd are browsing the rock n roll or sports items, the ladies will have a section of equally entertaining and enticing items. Home décor, artwork and fine jewellery pieces are sure to pique their interest.
There are no fees associated with our Consignment products and services. We are paid from the pool of funds collected once items are sold. There is absolutely no financial risk at all in using our services.
We take all those small, time-consuming tasks out of your auction by preparing custom-made bid sheets for both your donated items and our items. We also supply the pens, clipboards, easels and any other display fixtures needed for the auction.
Once we've set up the auction, our highly trained staff will fully run the auction on your behalf by ensuring guests are bidding in correct increments, answering questions from potential bidders as well as ensuring that the auction area is kept neat and tidy. You can sit back, enjoy your event and let us professionally and discreetly handle the many aspects of running your successful Silent and Live Auction program.
- Executing The Checkout
At the conclusion of the auction, our highly trained and experienced staff will execute the checkout portion of the auction using our state-of-the-art wireless Point of Sale terminals. We accept all forms of payment and will work with you to develop the best checkout strategy designed for your event taking into account your program, venue setup and the event's timeline.
Your charity receives all profits generated above the pre-arranged consignment price for each of our items (sent to you ahead of the event date), and we will take back any items that don't sell at no cost or expense to your organization. There are no hidden fees or charges involved in our Consignment services. We guarantee that your charity will raise funds on every single item of ours that is sold in the auction.
- The Follow Up
Following the event, all bid sheets will be reviewed with your staff. The next business day following the event, a detailed spreadsheet stating exactly what was sold and what is due to you will be sent out. A cheque will be sent out within 2 business days for the full amount owing.
