PTO Today offers some great Silent Auction clip art which is available for public download and use.

Some of the biggest money makers for a school silent auction are those that require the least time or effort to acquire and may be right in your own backyard. A behind the scenes school tour or other "off-limits privilege" can be a real treat for the bidder and a gold mine for you.

Some sponsors have a small window for donating each year. Keep a calendar so that you won't miss out!

When printing your tickets and flyers, offer more than just the base price. Instead of just stating your standard admission prices, add a few "advanced categories."

Have you ever been to an event where the silent auction is crammed into a space and you feel like you are at a discount mart? Why not go top tier instead? Using an idea from a popular dinner party - transform your auction into a progressive auction.



Pearl Bids silent auction manager  is the perfect tool to easily set up, keep track, and run your silent auction.


Scroll through the feature slides or watch some of the how-to videos to see for yourself why our customers continue to use Pearl Bids year after year for all of their silent auction events. 


*The original downloadable Pearl Bids is available as an alternative for those who do not have wifi access at their event.
