Auctioneers and Fund-Raising Event Experts!
As a Professional Charity Auctioneer, I do much more than just show up the night of the event and “call the auction.” My job is to engineer your live auction, bring new ideas and procedures to your organization, increase efficiency, and educate you on new technology and creative ways to increase revenue. This keeps your donors excited and happily giving their funds in support of your worthy cause.
The registration and checkout are vitally important parts of your fundraising event and are the first and last impression your guests experience. Hiring me to manage this function and your mobile bidding or bid sheet auction enables you to network with your guests to discover new volunteers and donors for your organization. Projecting an efficient, friendly and professional image helps your guests feel more comfortable donating money to your nonprofit because they feel you will manage their money well.
Here is what some of our clients have to say about Marty:
“We had never hired a professional auctioneer before, but after seeing how much our crowd enjoyed the live auction and how much more money we raised using Marty this year, we are convinced we made the right choice!”
“Thank you for all of your hard work this year. We appreciate you evaluating our sound system and bringing additional speakers to make sure the live auction was heard throughout our venue. It made a huge difference, and we couldn’t be happier with the results!”
“Thank you, Marty! Your confidence and excitement on stage kept the attention of our guests and your hard work and attention to all the details kept the dollars rolling in during the live auction.
