Rebroadcast: The Benefits of Auctioneering

Pete Springer/OPB

Today we present you with a special rebroadcast of The Benefits of Auctioneering show. Spring is high season for charity fundraising events, including benefit auctions. We meet Kelly Russell, a young auctioneer in the Portland area who describes her job as being a broker of transactions between those who can give and those in need. This program originally aired December 9, 2010.

If you donate money, what do you know about the people your gift supports. If you’ve received support from a charity, do you feel connected to the people who gave?
