My first experience with both attending an auction and organizing an auction was one in the same event recently (Sept 2010) where Kelly was our auctioneer. As a new non-profit organization in Portland, we are the Northwest Mothers Milk Bank, our hiring Kelly was a leap of faith--having to pay for that expense--that this would benefit our event.
We were sooo pleased and happy at the results--$10,000 raised at the auction--of Kelly's skill and expertise at our event. We now have funds to be used to hire a grant writer to help our organization raise funds in order to open and become a NW resource.
In addition to the end result, auction attendees commented on how much fun and energy Kelly brought to the event.
She was a huge asset to the Northwest Mothers Milk Bank and we were very happy with our relationship.
