An auction at a fund raising dinner can be just an auction or it can also be part of the entertainment! You succeed in making it both an auction that brings in the money and entertaining at the same time, both for those who were bidding so spiritedly and also for the rest of the audience.

So many people have emailed and phoned with glowing reports of the night and in particular have commented on how great the auction was and how entertaining you were.
