Post Creative Minds Please!
on: April 8, 2013, 10:18 PM

I teach 6th grade and each year the girls have a package party to raise money for tzedakah in honor of their Bas Mitzva. Each girl brings a package that is wrapped so no one knows what it is, and the girls along with their parents bid for the gift. We get a professional auctioneer and it's very exciting and raises lots of money for tzedaka. This year, we would like to do the same thing, but somehow make it less showy when it comes to the bidding. It seems like people felt a lot of pressure with the bidding. Does anyone have any ideas of a way to keep this a package party, and still raise a lot of money without the traditional auctioning way? Any ideas (even if not a package party) would be helpful.
Thanks!

How about changing your auction to a chinese auction?

Or not hiring someone professional? That could lessen the pressure.

Sell raffle tickets and by each prize have a box and no one will know how many one person purchased or put into one box. Then draw the prizes.
