Step-by-Step: There is no risk and the FREE balloon ride guarantees great results!
To qualify to receive the free hot air balloon ride for one person, all we require is that you include the Balloon Ride for Two People and the Balloon Ride for Four People in your auction. If no one bids on these rides, you do not purchase them—no risk!
This presents a big upside for your auction! Your special non-profit pricing is 40% less than our retail prices, so in addition to receiving the Balloon Ride for One Person Free—a $200 value—you have the opportunity to raise hundreds of dollars on the balloon ride for two people and the balloon ride for four people ( see the “Your Profit” column in the chart, above ). There are three steps:
You include the Balloon Ride for Two People and the Balloon Ride for Four People in your live or silent auction.
If no one bids on these rides, you are still entitled to the free ride for one person—you can count on that!
- We provide auction display signs, matching bid sheets, and a nationwide ride location list in our in our free FundraisingRides packet.
- To ensure that you raise money with these rides, the minimum bids on the bid sheets are set at the special non-profit prices for these rides. Your organization keeps all funds raised above the minimum bid.
- The FREE Hot Air Balloon Ride for One Person can be used any way you like! See list of suggested ideas in the next section, below.
After the auction, use the Post-Auction Order Form included in the FundraisingRides Auction Packet to request the free ride (or you can order from this website online!). You will also use this form to purchase any rides for two people or four people that you sold at your event at our low non-profit pricing. (FYI, you can double or triple your profits by offering rides to the 2nd and 3rd place bidders at the winning bid price.)
