Auction Consultants of Connecticut, LLC, can provide your non-profit organization or public or private school with the staff and computer components necessary to run your next charity fundraising event.

We have worked with various Event Planning software programs such as Auction Maestro and AuctionPay. Our knowledgeable staff will arrive prior to the event to setup and test the hardware and software. We begin the evening by registering your guests and gathering credit card information for faster check-out. Once the silent auction closes, we collect the bid cards and record the winners in your event planning software.

Live auction items and fund an item gifts are also recorded at this time. At the end of the evening, we provide your guests with a paid invoice to collect their purchased items. We provide your organization with a host of financial reports by the end of the event. Your event committee will receive reports showing the final tally on how much money the event made, which items sold which did not, breakdown of silent, live and or fund- an-item gifts, a list of open invoices, etc. We currently service the state of Connecticut and Westchester County, New York.
