Utilize the Five Senses for Your Fundraiser Silent Auction Items

By Charity Fundraising - October 17th, 2017

Finding the perfect silent auction item for your fundraiser is easier than one might think.

What makes it so easy?

My answer: stick to the five senses.

Utilizing the five senses in your silent auction items will bring your fundraiser to life!

How?

Let me show you!

VIP Experience and Vacation Packages help your guests Taste, Smell, See, Hear, and Touch.

1. Taste

Bring the flavors out!

Wining and Dining is one of our most popular VIP Experiences.

      

Who doesn’t love to spend a luxurious time experiencing some of the best food and drink out there?

Here are just a few options to consider:

  • Tuscany Culinary Escape
  • Become a Sonoma Valley Winemaker
  • South Beach Wine & Food Festival
  • Samuel Adams Brewery Tour in Boston
  • Napa Valley South to North Adventure
  • James Beard House Dinner Party
  • Le Cordon Bleu Paris

2. Smell

Breathe in the ocean air!

When someone says the words, “vacation” and “beach”, it doesn’t take much more for me to smell the ocean air and feel the sand beneath my toes.

      

A Beach Vacation Package is almost always a coveted silent auction item.

Listen to the sound of these trips:

  • Escape to Bora Bora & Tahiti
  • Maui Wailea Resort Vacation
  • Australia & New Zealand Exploration
  • Cabo San Lucas Ocean View Getaway

3. See

Take in the Beautiful Scenery!

International Vacation Packages give your silent auction guests the opportunity to go to the places they’ve always wanted to see!

      

What could be better than helping out a charity you believe in and going to a place on your bucket list?

  • Ireland Adventure
  • South African Safari
  • Tokyo Metropolis
  • Paris Renaissance
  • Escape to Rome

4. Hear

Hear the music!

Songs have a way of encapsulating seasons of our lives — memories, emotions, and even convictions.

 

Two perfect strangers can instantly feel a connection when they find out they have a favorite band in common.

The connection that music brings to one’s psyche is a powerful one. That equates to a powerful auction item!

 

Silent auction items related to music come in many different shapes and forms:

5. Touch

As a kid, how many times were you told, “Don’t touch that!”?

The joy of tactile sensations brings me straight back to being six years old in an antique shop with my mother.

Curiosity always got the better of me.

I may be older now, but that curiosity has never really left. I still feel misplaced when I walk into a retail store with delicate decorum.

Because let’s face it, we all are kids at heart!

One of the fun parts about having a family is being able to be a kid again yourself!

Here are some silent auction items for families that might peak your interest.

What could be more sensational than a roller-coaster ride or swimming with dolphins?

  • San Diego Theme Park Adventure – SeaWorld San Diego & LEGOLAND California resort admission
  • Kennedy Space Center Adventure
  • Orlando Theme Park Adventure
  • Disney World Family Adventure
