Creating a Sports Fundraising Auction

February 25th 2008

Q. We’re considering the creation of a fundraising auction.  What do you think of this idea and are there any successful sports auctions you could refer us to consider as a best practice for our event?

A. Auctions have proven over the years to be great fundraisers for sports teams, and one great example to share with you is the Chicago Bulls’ annual FestaBulls dinner auction, which is in its 19th year.

Just click here and you’ll be able to review all the information on the auction, which will be hosted by the Bulls in April.  On this page you will find the news release, the dinner auction TV spot, the dinner auction registration form, and you’ll see the event has a title sponsor.

Q. How did you enjoy the Super Bowl?
