Auction Frogs’ Corporate Volunteer Challenge brings teams together to compete, help good causes, and put the “FUN” back in fundraising
BOISE, ID - Feb. 17, 2011 - Two local volunteer teams will go head to head when the Auction Frogs’ Corporate Volunteer Challenge officially announces the results from the first Team Challenge on Friday, February 18th 6pm at the Ronald McDonald House.
Volunteers from the Craig Cheney Show will be raising funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho and competing against the Baan Thai Restaurant team raising funds for Junior Achievement of Idaho. The teams will meet and receive their second of four weekly fundraising challenges Friday.
The teams are made up of three to four volunteers from a local business and at least one member from the nonprofit. Each weekly challenge is directly related to the planning, marketing, and execution of an online benefit auction to be held at the end of the four weeks.
At the end of the Online Benefit Auction, March 18, the team with the most money collected wins the competition and a cash prize for the nonprofit.
The Auction Frogs’ Corporate Volunteer Challenge has come together with months of planning the support of exceptional sponsors like Western Capital Bank, Idaho Business Review, 94.1 The Voice, and many more auction donors and prize sponsors.
The teams will be using the Auction Frogs web-based application to take their online benefit auction to a new level. This online tool is a fun and easy way to automate many aspects of an event fundraiser. As a result, they will be able to reach a greater bidding audience with a longer timeframe for bidding which draws in much higher revenues for the nonprofit.
The Corporate Volunteer Challenge Spring 2011 is the first of many Auction Frogs sponsored events designed to help nonprofits overcome many common pitfalls normally experienced while fundraising and maximize their fundraising potential. While boasting some friendly competition, these events are all focused on helping good causes and putting the “FUN” back in FUNdraising.
