This past October, my husband and I had the opportunity to go to our first charity auction. We wanted to purchase something to use in my husband's dental practice. We were immediately drawn to two art pieces made by children in the school that the auction was benefiting. We ended spending much more money than we had budgeted. The energy in the room was amazing, and it was exciting to bid, and even more exciting to win! The auctioneer as well as the spotters on the floor really kept the room's energy up. It is a great way to raise money for non-profits. We most likely would not have given as much as we did at a different type fundraiser.
