FireLink's Fundraisers for Firefighters

FireLink | Kendra Weikman, Associate Editor

Bachelor auction


Time and time again bachelor auctions have been very successful ways of raising money for charity – especially when there are firefighters involved. Host this event in conjunction with a dinner or picnic and charge an admission fee for entrance.

Be sure to provide strict guidelines to those bidding in the auction. List out acceptable “date” ideas and how long they are allowed to be.

After the meal start the bachelor auction. You will need some brave firefighters for this one – commonly the more they ham it up on stage the higher the bidding goes.

Bring out the bachelors one at a time and let the bidding commence. The highest bidder can either win the opportunity to take the bachelor out for the night. You could even suggest going to a few area restaurants, cinemas, bowling alleys and bars to ask management if they will donate money to your cause.
