Story of Success: Hellenic Community of Ottawa and the Gold Plates Benefit

Posted by Winspire
27th Annual Gold Plate Dinner - Hellenic Community of Ottawa

Winspire would like to congratulate the Hellenic Community of Ottawa for their wonderfully successful Gold Plates Benefit last Tuesday, June 12th! They are ecstatic about how much money they were able to raise using Winspire packages. They reserved one package - America's Cup Yacht Sailing Experience in San Francisco Bay with 4-Night Stay and Airfare for 2 - at $2200 and sold it seven times at $4500 each. That's a total profit of over $16,000!

Erin Giakoumelos, General Manager of Hellenic Community of Ottawa, was happy to share the news with us:

"In total, we sold seven trips last night!  Can you believe it? We are thrilled, it definitely provided the WOW factor for the evening! Thank you for your continued support!" -Erin

Winspire is thrilled to be able to help Nonprofits like the Hellenic Community of Ottowa reach their fundraising goals, and we look forward to many more such success stories.

Strategy that Can Double & Triple Revenue from One Auction Item

Consignment travel packages can be extremely lucrative for your nonprofit, providing the ability to sell incredible trips multiple times, at no risk to you or your organization. Doing so benefits your event in three ways: Increase revenue: Double, triple, or quadruple your profit on a single package. It's a win-win: Making Bidders happy means making your nonprofit happy. Capture secondary bidders: Why have one winner when you can have multiple? Having more than one of the same auction items means there is no second place. Doubling up enables your auctioneer to capture additional revenue from more people.   It's easier to pull off than you might think! There are unlimited ways to sell multiple no-risk consignment travel packages at any point of your event timeline—before, during, and after—that doesn't take any extra procurement on your part and costs nothing if items do not sell. Read on for the strategies our nonprofit clients have used to double, triple, even quadruple their revenue on a single package to raise a lot more for their cause.
