Light it Right

Great lighting is critical to maximize your fundraising auction success. Illuminate your silent and live auction items brightly. Sometimes that means bringing in extra lighting for these areas. Ensure that your guests can read the silent auction times and bid forms. Many of your guests wear reading glasses and need that extra illumination.

Light the real stars of the auction – your treasured auction guests. Turn up the house lights full during the live auction! Dim dinner-style lighting can lose thousands of dollars and put supporters to sleep. During the live auction bidders need to read your auction catalog too.

Remember to instruct your even planner, lighting tech and auction venue manager about these special benefit auction lighting tips so they can be part of your successful fundraising team. Never spotlight your auctioneer, it’s impossible to see those waving bid cards and generous guests.
