New This Year: A Tricky Tray Raffle
New this year is the addition of a “tricky tray,” also known as a “penny social” or “pick-a-prize.” A “tricky tray” auction is a combination of a traditional raffle and silent auction where guests purchase raffle tickets and place the tickets in canisters near the items they hope to win. The format allows guests to focus on the prizes they hope to win and provides businesses an opportunity to advertise their products and services in a more engaging way.
