“Shelly, what an event it was! The event on Saturday night exceeded our expectations. I don’t think anyone thought that we would be so successful and that our community would feel inspired in quite the way that it was. So much of that is due to the coaching and expertise that you brought to the table.”

We are lucky to have had you!

“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!

“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.” “2017 brought the highest revenue to date”, thanks Shelly!

It was a great evening!”

“When I first met Shelly I knew we were a fit. I was completely blown away by Shelly’s kindness, compassion, passion for our cause, and willingness to truly get to know who we are, what we do, and why the event we hired her for was so important.”“Shelly was constantly engaged with us. She asked a lot of questions and made sure she understood everything about us as an agency and our event. She is affordable. By this I mean that whatever money you spend to partner with her, you will easily make that back during your auction.”
