Welcome to an exciting, informative, interactive environment where all charities get the celebrity treatment they deserve. Whether large or small, any size charity, foundation, or non-profit organization will be in great company with some of the most famous names in sports and entertainment, as we all work towards one common goal: to help raise funds and awareness for those in need.
Chris Doleman Pro Auctions® is a new online service that integrates social media and fundraising by hosting online auction events for all levels of charitable and non-profit organizations. The service is available to any charitable organization wishing to raise awareness of upcoming auctions and increase exposure of auction items to a broader audience of potential bidders, ultimately generating improved charitable funds raised. Auctions range from high-end celebrity and sports figures and their charities, to smaller, regional non-profit organizations looking for a wider audience.
The Chris Doleman Pro Auctions® site is designed so charities can manage all aspects of the auction themselves, from uploading images and descriptions to pricing each item. The ideal timing is to post an auction 5 days prior to a scheduled charity fundraising event. The event will remain active for a limited run of three days.
A unique feature of the site allows charities to directly contact each other through the site, providing a level of interactive networking that enables any charity to collaborate on ideas and learn from each other in a specialized setting.
We further promote our charity partners and their events through our companion site, Celebrity Charitable Network, designed as a newsroom for collaborating charities to tell the story of their charity and successful measureable outcomes. The strength of our social media outreach is combined with pre-auction and post auction editorial support on the site and through distribution to thousands of media outlets, helping to raise awareness of these essential organizations.
Founder and CEO Chris Doleman is a former NFL 15-year veteran for the National Football League. He played for the Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, and San Francisco 49ers from 1985 to 1999. He saw the urgent need for the Chris Doleman Pro Auctions® site through his own experiences and continuous charitable work, and set out to bring widespread exposure to charities of any level. “This adventure is driven by the need to assist others while connecting the great people that I have come in contact with throughout my career,” Doleman says.
