A new way to pass out bid numbers... When attendees arrive, hand out wristbands with their bid number on it. The bid number is handy throughout the evening and as the attendees circulate and bid on items it is super easy for them to double check their bid numbers before writing them down. Having seen way too many people record the wrong bid numbers on bid sheets, I think this is a fantastic idea.
Our customer went one step further; their event was PROM Night themed, so the bid numbers were handmade for each woman attendee as a wrist corsage! What a great way to make this a night to remember and to put your guests in a good mood! I bet their silent auction was a huge success.
