    We used a friend to officiate our wedding, but had he not been around, I definitely would have considered bidding on an officiant.  (For the record: Non-religious/spiritual, ended up writing my own ceremony drawing on UU/Jewish/Humanist texts and vows.)

    It would depend on the audience, if there could be a lot of engaged people among those participating in the fundraiser then go for it.  I’ve been to fundraisers for Marriage Equality that had silent auctions and I would think that could be a good audience, whereas the small fundraisers I’ve had for an MSWalk with a raffle for goods/services may not have generated much interest in wedding services.

    I agree that it depends on the audience.  In general it’s not something I’d bid on as I would want to meet the person first before making a financial committment to using them if my bid were accepted.

    Are the auction items being well advertised before hand?  I personally would not just go to an event and bid on something as important as an officiant, unless I knew beforehand that I wanted this person.  Lots of people like to meet with their officiants before deciding on them as well.

    I would only bid on it if I already knew you and wanted you to officiate. Otherwise I would stick with whomever I had in mind to officiate.
