The Montessori School of Anderson has been doing a spring fundraiser for the past twenty-six years. In the beginning we only had a live auction and in the past few years have incorporated both a silent and live auction. We have used both professional and parent talent to play the role of auctioneer. I believe that it is safe to say that in all of our years, we have never had an auctioneer who was so intricately involved in every aspect of our auction from item solicitation to the entire evening’s event. Your involvement in the silent auction as well as the live auction not only helped boost the attendees involvement, but your enthusiasm and energy made the evening fun and enjoyable for all of those attending whether they were actively bidding or simply spectators. Your problem solving and willingness to troubleshoot during the event really made a significant difference when we ran into sound issues. Also your suggestions prior to the event proved extremely useful from organizing our items, setting values, event set-up and the suggestion of a new software which prompted our purchase of the Auction Pay software. The “blinkie” light raffle was also a huge success in setting an enthusiastic tone to kick off our live auction.
