I would suggest researching this in depth and/or reaching out to people who are familiar with the relevant laws.
A cursory search indicates that in NJ, licenses are not required for auctions or auctioneers (which are considered sales of property, not gaming/gambling such as raffles or 50-50), and in PA sales run by/for charitable organizations where the auctioneer is not paid are exempt from licensing requirements.
However, do note that I am not a lawyer and I only did a cursory search, so this would have to be researched further.
