Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Developing An Auction Dinner (Part One - Continued)

 I have had the privilege of attending and working with thousands of auction dinners throughout North America for over 20 years. Some had several thousand attendees, while others only had fifty or so. The articles that follow are meant to give an overview of how successful auction dinners are conceived, planned and managed.

For anyone who wants a complete "Developing An Auction Dinner" package, complete with working manuals, workbooks, sample forms and PowerPoint presentations, visit my Festival and Event Planning website.

Event Development

  1. Payment

Make paying for prizes and raffle ticket as simple as possible. Today in our “cashless society”, charge and debit cards rule. To be successful, your event must arrange for charge and debit card facilities. You should be able to do this through you local bank or through a friendly merchant. Not having this facility will severely limit your events ability to raise money.

  1. Job Descriptions

When running an event, it is important for everyone involved (committee members and event volunteers) to know what is expected of them. A simple written job description will give all your workers the direction they need to make the event both successful and well run.

(Part Two of this series, "Developing an Auction Dinner" will talk about Event Planning.)
