Every year, our Brotherhood has an online auction to raise funds to support our programs. We traditionally kick-off the online auction with a themed live event. In 2012 the theme was a review of Steven Spielberg and his movies. This becomes the theme for the online auction and creates buzz. It's also a fun night out for the entire Temple membership.
- 4 months we assign the following tasks
- Solicitation Chair
- Marketing Chair
- Kick-off Auction Chair
- Online software manager
- 3-4 months prior to the auction we begin solicitation for items for the auction
- 2 months prior to the auction we begin marketing the auction and the kick-off
- 1 month prior posters go up
- Kick-off night - auction begins
- 3 weeks of on-line auction

Self Assessment
The combined kick-off and online auction brought in about $14,000.
We believe kick-off auction combined with online auctions can create a good fundraising program for other clubs.
