Red Sky Ball
The 3rd Annual Red Sky Ball event was a huge success in raising vital funds for the Children’s Heart Unit Fund. The charity event took place at Sunderland Football Club. CHUF’s focus is to make life better for children and young people who are born with or develop heart conditions, by providing lifelong support to them and their families.
For this year’s ball, it was decided that they would like to incorporate an interactive auction to offer something new to this year’s attendees in order to raise pivotal funds for CHUF.
The event was very well supported, with over 400 guests in attendance. The interactive auction was opened prior to the event via an online platform, to start accumulating bids before the event had commenced. This function and this was well-utilised by supporters of the event, and a significant amount was already raised beforehand.
The Red Sky Ball utilised the smartphone bidding capability and was hugely successful with 47 items being bid on in the interactive auction.
The ResultAmount raised: £9000Lots sold: 47
With over £9,000 raised the auction was a great success; with 47 auction items being bid on by the generous winning bidders. Auction favourites from attendees: sports memorabilia, overnight packages and group experiences.
