A silent auction is a seamless method of fundraising at events where guests place their bid discreetly within a brochure rather than signalling an auctioneer.
We use the sealed bid technique, as it limits bidders to one bid per item. This has consistently proven to raise more money for charity and it allows multiple sales of auction items, a more efficient collection of monies, less intrusion to the event, quicker conclusion, less conflict with the live auction and its extremely exciting!
Here are some of the main reasons to use Impulse Decisions to deliver your silent auction:
We do not charge any fees. All costs are built into the reserve prices;
100% of the bids above the reserve price are profit for the charity;
