I'm a PTA parent from Arlington, Virginia and have been working middle school auctions for years. When I got started, I couldn't find a comprehensive resource to help me plan an auction for a school. After gaining some great experience as either the auction/raffle event chair (2 years) or on the steering committee (2 years) AND researching how other parent-teacher groups fundraise, I wrote a 50+ page manual that would help the novice plan an auction or raffle event. My website is www.auctionsandraffles.com. I hope others will gain some good information from the manual and get the tools they need to be successful too.
I'm still gaining great insight from others! Thanks for sharing!
