The "Do's and Don'ts" for a Successful Virtual Event

In person? Virtual? Hybrid? During the Covid-19 Pandemic, many non-profit and charitable organizations are postponing or outright canceling their annual fundraising galas. With the need to pivot, and the ease of Web Base Platforms and Mobile Bidding applications, the Benet Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) groups have found success in a blended, OnLine and Virtual Fundraiser.

Learn more about how your organization can leverage the power of the Internet to maximize your donor's desire to give - even during this pandemic. We will discuss some of the best practices - and cover some of the lessons learned from the earlier bumps in the road.
