KTBA Creative Sessions Well Received by Non-Profit Community
By: Kip Toner ~ 6/15/2009

During the past couple of months, Kip Toner Benefit Auctions has been offering benefit auction Creative Sessions in conjunction with the Harbor Club as a way to promote networking in the benefit auction community and to communicate fresh new ideas to jumpstart benefit auctions in the current economy. These sessions have been well attended by representatives from diverse non-profit organizations, and the material presented and discussed has been especially enlightening for participating auction chairs and committee members.  Here is a sampling of the positive feedback these Creative Sessions have received:


“Thanks for a great evening! We all had a wonderful time and felt that it was very informative. We left feeling inspired and excited for our upcoming event.”   --Rebecca A.


“We found last night’s Creative Session EXTREMELY helpful and we had a fantastic time. The three of us are new to the ‘auction world’ and were going into this a little overwhelmed but left the Creative Session feeling energized and really excited.” --Lara C.


“I definitely enjoyed the workshop the other night.  I have been involved in auctions for about 15 years and I always appreciate fresh ideas.  I am amazed that there are any new ideas to discover!” --Michele T.
