Our key number one; is a bachelor auction, the most appropriate fund raiser for you. First, let's talk a simple definition. Typically, a bachelor auction is a lighthearted evening cocktail fund raiser where attractive men and their gift or promotional packages are showcased and sold to the audience in a competitive bidding live auction. The tone can range from formal and rather restrained to revealing and very ruckus depending upon your crowd and the way you plan your event. Of course, the same concept can apply to bachelorette auctions, but for the sake of ease throughout this, I'll use the more common bachelor focus. Now let's talk about, is this appropriate for your community? Are you in an urban or real community? Do you have a club or dating scene? What about bachelors? Can you find desirable men in your community who are also a bit untouchable or difficult to approach on a day to day basis. Next, how is the selling of individuals going to be viewed by your community? Of course, it's a fund raiser, but conservative communities might not look so kindly on the idea of a bachelor or bachelorette sale. There are several ways to look at this. What about the tone of your organization? Are you a serious focus or are you a more playful? What's the public perception of your group? Is the bachelor auction really going to be the best showcase for that? Now, if you already do other fund raisers, this is a fun and lighthearted way to add something new to your fund raising menu. Next, how racy do you want to be? There's really two ways to promote a bachelor auction. You can promote the date with the bachelor as the selling point and then any gifts or packages will be delivered that night of the date. However, you could alternatively promote the gifts and the package, perhaps of certificates or jewelry and flowers and the date become optional with the gentlemen being the spokesperson for that package. That's two ways you can go. Now, we've figured out whether or not it's appropriate, let's talk a couple kinds of things you'll need to do. First, you'll need to find bachelors, then get an appropriate venue, mark it for the bachelor packages and for your attendance, design a schedule and whatever other parts of the evening there'll be, staff your event and follow up afterwards. To do this you're going to need two types of support. You need community support, which means you'll need bachelors and bachelors will need companies that will donate on their behalf and you'll need attendees. You'll need women or men or both who want to attend and spend. They might bid on these packages they want the date or they might be friends of the bachelor or bachelorette and they're coming simply to support them and give some money on behalf of your cause. These things will help you determine if a bachelor auction is the most appropriate fund raiser for you. We'll see you again with some more tips about bachelor auctions.
