Necker Cup raises $1,000,000
Necker Island, British Virgin Islands.
Richard Branson hosted the second annual Necker Cup this past November, a Pro-Am tennis tournament at his private Caribbean island to raise money for charity.
Rafael Nadal, Anna Ivanovic, Boris Becker, and Martina Navratilova were among the pros competing. At the closing night dinner, bidders had the opportunity to win coveted player's passes to Wimbledon and a practice session with these tennis legends.
The ibidmobile.net team brought its cutting edge technology to this island paradise and helped the players more than $1,000,000.

Our featured auctioneers
We work with top professional auctioneers who specialize in charity auctions, including Lydia Fenet of Christie's and award winning auctioneer Jason Lamoreaux. Each has raised millions of dollars at charity events around the world.
Our auctioneers prepare for your auction by evaluating the live auction catalog, advising on pricing and running order, and learning about the key donors who are expected to bid. At your event, they will attend the reception to get to know your bidders. In this way, they can personally engage them from the podium, which makes for a more entertaining auction and better results.
The ibidmobile.net team takes care of all live auction spotting and checkout to ensure the highest level of customer service.
Jessica, an ibidmobile.net auction manager, counsels her clients to be choosey. When an auction has too many items, bidders lose focus and are less likely to bid competitively. Make sure each category has several items in all price ranges, but don't feel pressured to include items that don't fit just because they were donated. These extra prizes can be raffled off or auctioned online. A well curated auction catalog will always bring in more money than a rummage sale.
