From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Big Book of Benefit Auctions

"The Big Book of Benefit Auctions by Jay Fiske and Corinne Fiske is a wonderful tool for any nonprofit. I have found many of the strategies that Jay and Corinne discuss, when implemented properly, absolutely enhance your fundraising abilities."
—Peggy M. Theiss, Director of Gourmet Events, National Office of the March of Dimes

"To be absolutely sure that your next event is a 'sure-fire' success, we recommend you jump-start it with The Big Book of Benefit Auctions. It is the ultimate step-by-step guide to increase your audience, perk up your procurement, and motivate your volunteers. We think this book is a bestseller in more ways than one! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

—Dick and Sharon Friel, internationally recognized benefit auctioneers, who have conducted over 2,200 auctions, bringing in over $300 million for a variety of schools and civic and cultural organizations

"Having chaired 14 auctions (half of which have been under Jay's tutelage), I have come to realize that there is no one better in the auction business than the Fiskes, Northwest Benefit Auctions, and their innovative MaestroSoft software. I only wish I had The Big Book of Benefit Auctions when I first began my journey. By following the advice in this book, you will double your profits, make your volunteers happy, and enjoy years of successful fundraising!"
—Sallie Jo Tardy Mitzell (Indianapolis, IN), Culver Academies, Park Tudor School, Orchard School
