If you’re asking yourself “Where do we start?”
It’s right here.
Planning a fundraiser can be overwhelming, and it’s easy to get barely into organizing before you feel like you’re juggling more than an octopus could handle. Sound familiar? Maybe not the octopus part, but the rest?
Fortunately, there’s someone out there that can take the stress of planning a fundraising auction off your shoulders, and you’ve found them. C King Benefits is more than an auctioneer or an event planner, but also a resource. We combine the best of auctions and event planning to create high end events and an environment that leaves your guests excited to support your cause every year.
With a C King Benefits partnership, we’ll begin with our Hoperaising Toolkit. Unique to CKBA, this is where we’ll empower you to plan a fundraising event like never before. We’ll guide you though every step and provide you with all the materials you’ll need to not only throw a successful event, but to establish it as the place to be year after year.
We don’t want to give too much away just yet, but with our Hoperaising Toolkit, you’ll receive materials to help conduct your silent auction, set you up for a special appeal, learn how to efficiently and electronically accept payment from bidders and accept bids with your guests’ mobile devices. We’ll give you suggestions for an event timeline and help you plan an evening that keeps the energy (and money!) flowing. You’ll also learn about our exclusive Lucky 7 tool to generate higher bids in your silent auction, along with special training to assure your evening runs flawlessly.
With the knowledge of how to create your guest list, train your volunteers and connect with the most generous donors, C King Benefits provides award-winning auctioneers and assistants to entertain your guests for the evening. This is where we could say something like we put the FUN in fundraising, but we’ll refrain, because that might be cheesy. Instead, we’ll just promise to charm and entertain your guests, using our strategic skill to set the mood for the most generous donations.
