LIGHT IT RIGHT!
Proper Benefit Auction Lighting Ignites Bidding
Don't loose thousands of dollars with a under-lit auction venue!
Specific benefit auction lighting is critical to maximize your fundraising auction success.
A huge error that many auction committees make is to set low level 'dinner style mood lighting' during the live auction and fund-a-need.
My Kingstonism: "Dim Lighting = Dismal Dollars." With so much riding on the success of your auction: Why risk it?
Light the real stars of the auction - your treasured auction guests.
Please read my article for brilliant insights about how to light your charity auction venue to optimize fundraising!

"From 2009 to 2010, and with Kathy's leadership, we doubled our silent and live auction proceeds and tripled our paddle raise. Kathy convinced me to start our paddle raise at $5,000, which made me nervous, but she was absolutely correct as two hands went up. By the time she asked at the $2,500 level half the room was participating! But whether our guests were comfortable given at these levels or $250 she made everyone feel terrific about their contributions and created a wonderfully supportive community for the Hospital."
