Holding Silent Auctions: A Great Way to Raise Money for Your Charity
"As the piece notes, the event included a silent auction, wherein the proceeds would be donated to the school district. Holding silent auctions has become one of the most popular ways of raising money for worthwhile causes, and there are many advantages to organizing one. To begin with, it’s a great way to bookend an event, such as the speaking engagement and dinner that the Gary Community School Corp. held.

Furthermore, auctions like these are very scalable, meaning even just two or three people can coordinate it."
