"True Influence is when you inspire someone to feel, think and act".
Marketing, strategy, planning and creating partnerships on your auction team are second only to raising the highest possible dollar amount. We believe that a solid planning and fundraising foundation is the key to banner live auction success. Having conducted 100’s of auctions we have seen just about everything, both good and bad, and learning from these victories and blunders has allowed us to earn “expert” status.

We work in our communities to raise money to serve the missions of nonprofits, schools and religious organizations as live fundraising auctioneers, emcees and speakers.
We’ve paid enormous attention to all of our clients and events over the last 14 years which have landed us where we are today —conducting over 700 auctions and events as a lead auctioneer, emcee or speaker nationally, raising an estimated $125 million for NPO’s.
