HOW IT WORKS

For Businesses

Businesses who are invited to host a Community Auctions Event Table provide charities and patrons with the venue they need to connect in support of worthwhile causes. We recognize these establishments to be the backbone of their communities, critical to the support of charitable causes and facilitating the spaces where patrons can connect with those causes. The local charities benefitting from the Event Tables look to these pillars of the community for support of their missions. Through the generosity of businesses ranging from family-owned local enterprises to some of the world’s largest corporations, we are able to share the power of charitable giving nationwide.

Hotel Lobby

Event Tables

The addition of a Community Auctions Event Table to any hotel lobby signifies two important things to the patrons of that establishment. First, the hotel hosting the table is invested in their local community and therefore rooted in a mission to facilitate the common good. Second, they care about offering their guests a premiere experience during their stay and making high-quality items available in an attractive lobby setting only enhances that goal.

Restaurant

Event Tables

Over 200 million Americans enjoy dining out each week, meeting friends and family to share a meal and connect with one another in fellowship. Community Auctions offers diners an easy way to connect with their local charities in support of their mission. The attractive display of items with local flavor draws restaurant patrons these establishments. Often with them also spreading the word to their friends and family so they’ll make sure and stop by as well.

Bank

Event Tables

Every day millions of Americans venture to their local bank while running the day’s errands. Banking professionals know that connecting at a personal level with their hometown customer base is paramount to building the trust required to be stewards of customer funds.  From our experience, the addition of a Event Table in the lobbies provides the Bank with a simple and effective way to express their commitment to the community and the charities it supports.

Stadium & Arena

Event Tables

The scent of ballpark hot dogs, popcorn, and fresh green grass greet fans of sports teams across the country every season. Our auction items are tailormade for the discerning fan who is interested in unique and classy sports memorabilia to add to their collections. The added benefit of charitable giving sends many fans home with not just an experience of a lifetime, but also a lasting sense of service for helping to support those in need.

Civic Centers & Attractions

Event Tables

Civic centers, galleries, and heavily frequented public venues provide an excellent way to connect a charity’s fundraising event with the most potential bidders possible. Community is central to the pursuit of the common good. When patrons gather in support of charitable causes the benefits are felt by those most in need. Adding yet another level of intrigue to galleries and popular attractions is easily accomplished through the display of enticing items on a Community Auctions Event Table.

Reggie Woolridge

"We truly enjoy our partnership with Community Auctions. I have been familiar with CA for more than five years. My previous experience has been interacting with them during several fundraising and holiday events held in the cities of Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri. Because I was so impressed with the quality of their items and heard that they offer programs that would fit any business. I decided to contact them and implement a display at my hotels, Marriott Overland Park Kansas and Cleveland Airport Marriott. Both hotels have seen great success with the community auction items and allow us an opportunity to support an organization our company believes in each month with generous contributions from the sales of the display items. Community Auction is a great partner and we truly enjoy working together with them. "
