"Cigars, Bourbon & Benefactors" generally earns $35,000 from its unmatched auctions. Highest bids are generated by one-of-a-kind, bucket list, or experiential items or activities that come with bragging rights. Bidding wars start when an item can't be purchased in stores, e.g., handmade luxury items, trips, private events, sports tickets with suite access, etc.
People love raffles! They generate excitement, which increases charitable giving at the event. Items that are sold in stores, but might otherwise be a splurge, are popular. Think, rare bourbon, jewelry, high-end grills, 4K TVs, electronics, etc.
We invite chefs, bakers, restaurants, and caterers, and breweries and distilleries, to attend and offer either tastings or more substantial portion sizes for up to 150 people. Participate once and you'll experience why locally famous restaurants and chefs, to celebrity bakers from Netflix and Food Network, join us year after year.
Marketing through sampling gives consumers a chance to experience the product quality firsthand and provides a more powerful and lasting impression. We invite you to sample your product in a place that is hyper-focused on your target audience by providing 50 units for inclusion in VIP gift bags.
