SO WHAT EXACTLY DOES A CHARITY EVENT HOST DO?
The main purpose of a chairty event is to raise money for a good cause. Supporters and patrons are often invited to a black tie event where they are served delicious food, have an opportunity to network and then spend a little bit of money towards good causes.
More often than not this involves auctioning charity items off. Whilst some clients think and do indeed take a shot at doing this themselves, it is far easier with a professional charity event host like Duncan.
It gives you or the organizing team the opportunity to relax and enjoy all of your hard work coming together. Not only that but if you want to raise the most money for your cause, it’s worth bringing in a professional who really knows how to encourage the audience to spend more and have fun doing so.
WHY SHOULD YOU HIRE A CHARITY EVENT HOST?
No doubt you are looking to raise as much money for your chosen charity. Some people think they can do the hosting themselves and whilst they could, the difference between an amateur and a professional charity event host is vast. Whilst you may think you could save some money – in the short term you could but when you have a room full of wealthy people, there is an art to getting them to dig a little deeper into their pockets for a good cause.
This is where the skill of a professional charity host comes in. Not only that but if you hire someone like Duncan then you can also enjoy the other elements of his act other than just his auctioneering abilities.
