Once you contact us here's how it will work:
Our Auction Program Manager will begin working with you immediately to better understand your event and how Sports Gallery can assist. You'll be encouraged to browse this site or, better yet, come in to one of our showrooms to see the types of unique sports collectibles we have to offer. But if you don't have time, don't worry. We'll take care of it. We'll make sure you have just the right pieces for your audience and auction goals.
IMPORTANT! No money is paid to Sports Gallery until the completion of your event and we only collect payment on those items that are sold at your event making this completely NO-RISK for you and your organization! After we've decided on the items for your event, we can help you set the bid price, provide you with detailed descriptions that sell for each item, and assist with bid sheet design and item display if needed. We can even provide stands for item display! We'll use our years of auction experience to help you market your Sports Gallery collectibles so that they will garner the highest bids possible.
Best of all, we donate 30% of the price so you can start the bidding at an attractive price to get things rolling. And the difference between our discounted price and the eventual winning bid ALL goes to your organization. The potential for sizable contributions to your fundraiser is remarkable and virtually unlimited! And what makes it remarkable is our items. Compare them to others you have seen and you know what we are talking about. Put simply, our items get bids!
Before your event we'll work out arrangements for delivery or pick up of your collectibles. If your event is not in the San Francisco Bay Area, we'll work with you on shipment. After the event, you can return the items that did not sell. We'll then partner with you to evaluate the event and calculate the earnings from the Sports Gallery items.
Most importantly, we'll make sure the event was a Win-Win for your attendees and your organization!
Simply put our goals are threefold:
- Entertain your guests;
- Make your organization money; and
- Make the process as easy and painless a process as possible for you.
Utilizing our experience and expertise in charity auctions and fundraisers, we're confident we can meet both our objectives.So if you are having a fundraising auction, contact us and let us walk you through our Auction Program.
There's nothing to lose and so much for you and your organization to gain!
