Your guests will remember three things about your auction:

  1. How long did it take to register?
  2. How long was the entire event?
  3. How long did it take to check-out?

Long lines at checkout are the curse of a charity auction. The speed and efficiency with which your attendees pay and receive their "winning" items often determines the success of future auctions.

Maureen and John Winter have taken their experience in managing more than 300 charity auctions and reduced it to a formula for success for every charity. This 100 page book is filled with tips and techniques, volunteer charts and assignments, forms and labels that will provide a solid base for the conclusion of your event.

Using examples from real situations, the authors guide you to all the steps you need whether your auction has 100 items or 600 items. The last thing your guests will remember is how quickly they checked in and how quickly they were able to leave with their prizes. No one will even think about how long was the event.

The book fully integrates with AuctionCheckoutPro software and used together will guarantee a successful closing to your fundraising auction. The software contains all the forms and labels you will need to implement the steps in the book. Manual processes are also fully illustrated.
