PROFESSIONAL ENTERTAINMENT & EVENT SERVICES
Whether you need a benefit auctioneer for your charity fundraiser, a dj for a private party or community function, a narrator for your corporate training project, or an announcer for an awards ceremony or gala, I've got you covered. I've been in the entertainment and events business for over twenty years, wearing many hats along the way (still have most of them) and offer a wide variety of services to help make your project or special event a huge success.
But wait, there's more. In addition to the skills mentioned above, I also offer valuable services like nonprofit consulting, event management, logistical support, and graphic design. I can even provide your sound system in some cases.
CHARITY BENEFITS. GOLF TOURNAMENTS. FUNDRAISING GALAS.
Mention the word "auctioneer" and most people think of a fast-talking, bow-tie-wearing, gavel-banging guy standing on stage behind a podium selling everything from exotic cars, to livestock, to real estate. And yes, that's definitely one type of auctioneer. But benefit auctioneers have a different style, a different tempo, a different objective... or at least they should. Your auctioneer ought to be viewed not as a "hired gun," but as a trusted advocate for your cause.
My auctions are fun, interactive, and entertaining. I want all of your guests (not just the bidders) to enjoy themselves and participate in the fundraising process – either by bidding on items or encouraging those who are. It's important for the audience to understand just how their contributions will make a difference and impact the lives of others. It's my job to communicate your message, vision, and mission. The more they know, the more they'll care, and the more they'll give.
As a benefit auctioneer, I've helped prominent clients such as Tony Hawk Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Tilly's Life Center, Los Angeles Mission, Rob Dyrdek Foundation, Cystinosis Research Foundation, Olive Crest, Infinite Hero Foundation, Girls Inc., Quiksilver Foundation, Festival of Children Foundation, Special Olympics Southern California, and many more, raise millions of dollars collectively in the last decade alone.
CORPORATE PROJECTS. COMMERCIALS. NARRATIONS. EVENT ANNOUNCER.
