Let Carita take care of everything
Before the event
In the build-up to your event you will be given the opportunity to meet with your personal account manager to fine-tune any specific details and confirm your fundraising target.
These details will then be used to collate a bespoke list of items for auction, which, will be transformed into a high quality catalogue tailored specifically for your event.
Your personal event manager will liaise with you from start to finish, offering expert advice and handling any necessary arrangements. Working closely together will allow your evening to benefit from a winning combination of our event expertise and your personal understanding of your guests and their needs.
During the event
Before your guests arrive we will set up the professional display and ensure all arrangements are in place. As the event begins our experienced team will help greet and seat your guests.
Working closely with the MC, we will also run through a simple guide to silent auctions along with the do’s and don’ts of bidding.
During the auction we will quietly circulate items to interested parties, giving them the opportunity to take a closer look and ask questions.
Once the auction is closed we will inform the winners, collect payments, tally up the total amount raised and all auctioned items will be prepared for winners to take home.
After the event
We appreciate that after your event you will be keen to know exactly how successful the auction was, which is why, after just two business days you can expect a full break down of all funds raised for your chosen charity. We also work quickly to arrange for any outstanding items to be delivered to the winning bidder.
Our account team will work efficiently to contact any bidders who opted not to pay on the evening to ensure that all due payments are collected on time, and no money is overdue. We also email unique vouchers to all of your guests, and, in the unlikely event of any issues with the auctioned items, we will provide post-event care.
