Wonderful Idea for Country Clubs during this downtime...
I woke up this morning and saw an email promoting this auction from Pinehurst Resort & Country Club, and I thought to myself -- "What a wonderful idea!":
During this time of "Social Isolation" where country clubs (and others) are shut down, this is a promotion that will keep club members engaged during this crisis, auction off many things that will bring members to the club when this epidemic is over and more importantly help employees who have been furloughed.
As of this writing, the site has already raised over $70,000 -- and as far as I can tell this auction started just today!
This is something other clubs can easily model!
And not just County Clubs (although their members may be in a better position to bid at higher levels), but this could work for theaters, schools, restaurants -- and with a little thought can be adapted to help nearly any business!
Give it a try!
PS: Quick update! It is now April 9th (12 days later) and they have raised nearly $300,000 so far!
