Winspire wants to wish you all: “Bon Mardi Gras!”

Posted by Winspire

...And a special “lessez les bon temps rouler” (Let the good times roll!) to all of the winning bidders who supported their charities by purchasing a 2012 Winspire New Orleans Mardi Gras party package.

The winners of this Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience will be treated to an exclusive VIP party celebration on Monday night on a private balcony at La Bayou Restaurant on Bourbon Street.

It's one of the largest balconies on Bourbon Street, making it a great place to watch the parades. They are also enjoying a 3-night stay at the newly-reopened Hyatt Regency New Orleans, as well as round-trip coach class airfare for two from within the contiguous U.S. and Canada to New Orleans.

French for "Fat Tuesday," Mardi Gras is a world-famous New Orleans festival attracting more than six million visitors every year. While the 2012 Mardi Gras package is no longer available, we do have a fabulous New Orleans package that can be enjoyed year-round!

Check out our catalog of over 200 unique Experiences for your auction.

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.
