Setting up your auction is straightforward and fast. We've included all the features you need and none you don't.

Enter some golf tournament details, upload donated items, and select some TravelPledge experiences. Then open the bidding to golfers. We'll keep bidding fun with outbid notifications, Buy it Now, and "popcorn" bidding.
Specify your fund-a-need or "paddle raise" denominations and watch the donations roll in! Offer items like donated gift cards for a fixed price, and we'll promote them until they sell out.
During and after your online auction, view your dashboard to learn how much you've raised and who has paid for their items. Additionally, add absentee bids, mark multiple winning bidders, resend invoices, and more.
Add local golf, stay and play packages, B&B stays, wine tastings, luxury vacations and more with a single click. Here's a sampling of experiences from generous business owners who stepped up for your cause.
