Hello Shelly, I just wanted to send you a personal note thanking you for your outstanding work on our “Beach Bash” last night. You did an amazing job bringing out the best in our community, and we are all so thrilled with the results.

More importantly, you were a true partner with those of us working on the auction, asking for input on items and approaches. It was really a joy to work with such a committed professional. Thank you!

“Shelly, I just wanted to let you know that Libby did an absolutely fabulous job on Saturday night. As you heard we had some technical difficulties. Libby offered valuable solutions to the problems and was able to go with the flow and adapt and still do a fantastic job. Everyone has been telling me that it was a really great event, and Libby played a big part in that. Thanks Libby!”

City Year Denver

“Shelly, I can’t begin to thank you enough for flawlessly executing the live auction/night of ask for City Year last night! You did an incredible job and the results showed! We more than doubled what we raised at our last evening event earlier this year and easily raised 40% more than the event prior to that! Thank you so much for helping us reach our goals!’

‘It was a great evening!”

Vanecia B. Kerr, Managing Director

Hill Middle School

“We used Libby’s auctioneering service at our fundraising event for Hill Campus of Arts and Sciences last night. She was incredible, amazing, fun and vivacious!  She told jokes and knew a lot about the school from the tour she had taken and the research she had done (on both the prizes and the school).  She brought in MUCH more than we anticipated, she literally doubled our proceeds for the night!”

Molly Kirschling, PTA

The Butterfly Pavilion

 “I have had the privilege and honor to have partnered with The Auction Divas at numerous fundraising events I have lead as a Director of Development. Their thoughtful suggestions and tested knowledge have led us to beat projections at every event I’ve used their team. From planning to auction packaging, community contact and unique and fun style, they truly cannot be beat. I would move event dates to ensure they were part of my event because of the success they bring to the team. I can count on them to get every dollar in the room.”

Andy Szekeres, Director of Fund Development
