“We just held our auction…what a success!  I used just about every technique I learned at your “Auction Success in a Down Economy” seminar.  Our final tally exceeded last year’s amount.  Who would have thought that in this economy that could happen?  I really owe it to you.  What I learned in your seminar was well received by the museum’s executive staff, the committee, and by the attendees.”

“Your enthusiasm and professionalism always add so much excitement to the night. I am certain that the success of the evening had much to do with your partipation in Rose Bids this year. We couldn’t have done it without you.”

Sharon Garland, Director of Development, St. Elizabeth Community, Rhode Island

“Kathy is among the best charity auctioneers in this country. Her auctions are lively, infused with enthusiasm and moves people to reach new heights. Every auction or workshop I have attended has generated great energy and results in very significant contributions to your organization.”

-Sharon Danosky, Danosky and Associates

“I just had to personally thank you for the wonderful seminar Virginia and I attended. We both had high hopes in terms of content, and you more than delivered.

I am sure Steve Scofield told you what a great (auction) Sunday turned out to be; this will apparently be our biggest grossing event in our organization’s history, and we are still stunned (and grateful) for all of your help.

Again, thanks for all you have done.We are now your loyal fans, and know we will be working with you for many years to come.”

“One of the most important aspects of the entire fundraising auction event is hiring a professional charity/benefit auctioneer. This single decision can make a significant impact on the financial success of your next auction. A professional auctioneer with specialized training and experience in fundraising can generate more profit for your event, in addition to creating an unforgettable evening of fun and excitement for your supporters and guests.”

Kathy’s workshops have given our non-profit clients: hope and profit making methods: in an economy that can only be described as dismal. They’re fun, interactive and filled with ideas that can easily raise thousands of new dollars, year after year.”
