I performed a fundraiser auction last weekend and it was like pulling wisdom teeth and trying to chisel another bid out of the crowd. The money was being raised for Habitat For Humanity in the Galveston & Gulf Coast area, which was hit hard by Hurricane Ike last year and still trying to rebuild. However, it seemed as though most were looking for bargains and deals, rather than contributing to the cause.

Times like this make it even more important to hire only NAA certified "Benefit Auctioneer Specialists." ;)
