Last weekend, one of our fundraising auction patrons told me how pleased he was with the results of the evening. Then he asked whether or not I did small auctions. "Of course!" I said. Actually, I love the small grassroots auctions when they are just getting started. All fundraisers or benefit auctions have to start somewhere, and it's exciting be there from the start to watch them grow and develop into major events. Most of the charity work I've done through the past twenty years has been working with groups who are just starting out. So if you've been thinking about putting together your first auction, or maybe hiring a professional auctioneer for an established event; give me a call or drop a line.
