Hiring a professional auctioneer is an essential step in achieving your fundraising goals for an upcoming charity auction. However, not all auctioneers carry the same qualifications. With Gavelo Auctions, you will work with Benefit Auction Specialist Nelson Jay, who can provide a comprehensive roadmap to success for your event. Not all auctioneers carry the BAS designation—in fact, most do not. However, it is worth seeking out an auctioneer specialist with this level of training and certification.

Why Work with a Benefit Auction Specialist?

Benefit Auction Specialists are members of the National Auctioneers Association who must attend and successfully complete the BAS designation class, are regularly involved in benefit auctions, and must complete at least 24 hours of continuing education every three years. With this added training and experience, Benefit Auction Specialists have unique insight to assist with procurement ideas, audience development, auction item order, develop event show flow, help guide venue and vendor selection and highlight best practices for live auctions, virtual and hybrid fundraising benefit auction events.

What Can Nelson Jay Help You Accomplish with Your Event?

Nelson Jay provides much more than a dynamic stage presence for your charity auction. As a BAS, Nelson can offer full consulting expertise to create a successful fundraising event. Auctions are key revenue generators for your nonprofit organization, so it’s worth seeking out a fundraising auctioneer who will truly understand your organization’s mission and help you achieve your event goals. Nelson serves several roles as an auction specialist, including educator, motivational speaker, entertainer, and salesman.

It’s a common misstep for organizations to attempt hosting benefit auctions without investing in the right professional help. While it may seem like charity auctions are simple on the surface, they require coordination of many different details to come together successfully. Don’t leave major decisions up to well-meaning volunteers or board members who assume they can DIY the event to save money. With the right consulting, you can significantly drive up the revenue generated by your event.
