Fundraising Auction Workshop: 2/24/09, Sonoma Volunteer Center

Reynolds & Buckley will be conducting a workshop entitled Fundraising Auctions in Hard Times on Tuesday, February 24th at the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County. Company founder and nationally recognized fundraising expert David Reynolds will be on hand to discuss the challenges facing anyone conducting a fundraising auction today, along with associates Greg Quiroga and Ed Gold.

This is the third year we’ve partnered with the Sonoma Volunteer Center to offer a workshop, and this workshop couldn’t come at a more relevant and important time. We will discuss emerging trends in fundraising auctions, share insights from the 50+ events we’ve done since the recession “officially” began last fall, and touch on the ever-important fundamentals:

  • Laser beaming your message
  • Donor development
  • Bidder recruitment
  • Audience empowerment

Then we’ll break up into roundtable discussion groups led by David, Greg and Ed to address the specific concerns of each organization’s event. Whether you are considering starting an auction or have a well-established event, you are certain to gain a wealth of tips and ideas.

Date: Tuesday, February 24
Time: 9:30 am – 12:00 pm
Place: Volunteer Center of Sonoma County, 153 Stony Circle, Suite 100, Santa Rosa, CA
Fee: $45 for members of the Volunteer Center of Sonoma; $65 for non-members
