How we work

Let us take care of everything

We understand how much time and effort goes into creating a successful charity event, from golf days to gala dinners and cabaret nights, there’s so much to consider. As such, when you engage with us for your silent auction, we will manage everything for you – from start to finish. We’ll even bring in our own team during the event to ensure the auction becomes a professionally presented feature, we’ll also promote the auction to guests to encourage bids.

Before the event

In the run-up to your event, you will be given the opportunity to meet with your personal account manager from Carita to discuss any specific details we need to be aware of and confirm your fundraising target.

The details you provide will be used to collate a bespoke list of items for your upcoming silent auction, which will be transformed into a high-quality catalogue tailored specifically for your event.

By working closely together, your evening to benefit from a winning combination of our event expertise and your understanding of your guests’ needs.

During the event

We set up the display and ensure all brochures are in place or tablets are set up – depending on which auction type you choose. And as the event begins our team will help greet and seat your guests.

Working with your MC, we will run through how silent auctions work, and during the auction we will quietly circulate items to give guests the opportunity to take a closer look and ask questions.

Once the auction is closed, we will inform the winners, collect payments, work out the amount raised and prepared items for winners to take home.

After the event

We appreciate that after your event you’ll be keen to know how successful the auction was, which is why after just two business days you can expect a full break down of all funds raised. We also work quickly to arrange for any outstanding items to be delivered to the winning bidder.

Our team will contact any bidders who opted not to pay on the evening to ensure all due payments are collected on time.

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.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“I genuinely did not believe we could raise so much by doing so little. Thanks for your support and professional help on the night, we could not have done it without you. Only one regret, I wished we had used you before now!”
