Some Things to Sell: Raffle Auction Specify a container (such as a plastic cup) next to each item for raffle with a tag for the thing it matches. Have everyone put tickets using their titles in the container labeled with the thing they're interested in. Dump the tickets out of the container to combine them before drawing titles to announce a winner for every single product.
Have a couple of people available to deliver the merchandise to waiting family members. Now, for some fund raising ideas. Allow a fixed amount of time for the silent auction. Again, invite family members to donate items for a raffle, or use only one big, unique prize for the raffle.If you've got some high end items which you can do a separate raffle for all those who have different color tickets which cost more.
Get something especially made with the family name to market for your family reunion fund raiser. A silent auction replaces the auctioneer with pencils and paper and works really well with a mix & mingle activity. Asking family for money can be hard. Additionally, you probably already asked each family to give a set fee for your family reunion but want a little extra money for a number of activities. More families will be ready to share cash if they know there's a fundraiser at the family reunion.
So announce the fundraiser ahead of time. Ask family members to submit items to be sold in an auction. They could provide crafts, food items or just a voucher for service, perhaps a week at their private cabin in the hills. A fantastic auctioneer will keep the auction moving and lively quickly.
