“Charity auctions are fundraising events that turn into social events, not social events where you hope to raise money. If done correctly, your guests won’t know the difference.”
– Keith Jones, Sayre & Jones
In a word—results! Only a professional auctioneer can ensure your event brings in top dollar. Hiring Sayre & Jones can boost your bottom line by 300% or more. We bring special skills, strategies and tools to get the most out of your audience. Engaging our service isn’t an event expense—it’s an investment in your organization’s future.
You get what you pay for. Every Sayre & Jones auctioneer holds a valid license and works full-time in the industry. Not every auctioneering company can say that. Hiring a dedicated charity auction specialist makes a difference.
What’s more, not every auction house offers the level of customer service and consulting that Sayre & Jones provides. We pride ourselves on working closely with clients. We make ourselves available and responsive, enhancing your event experience so that it’s not only successful but enjoyable. Our event expertise and resources allow us to partner with clients, unlike most auctioneers. That’s not something you’ll find at other companies, unfortunately.
It’s our goal to finalize all auction items 2 weeks prior to the event. this allows us to put the items in the best order to get top dollar, and gives the team time to familiarize themselves with the items.
Absolutely! In our experience, pairing the two types of auctions brings an organization more dollars. Browsing the items is fun, and increasing the enjoyment of an event puts your guests in a more generous mood. That’s great for your bottom line! Also, offering silent-auction items can give people who don’t have the resources to bid on higher-dollar items, a chance to participate in the fun.
