What The Auction Chair had to say.

---April Brown is a joy to work with. She's been our charity auctioneer for more than 15 years and we look forward to working with her year after year. She is a great performer and so easy to work with. Each year she helps us come up with something new for raising more money. Christ the King

----Our charity auction had been limping along for more than 10 years and we were so disappointed in the charity auctioneers we hired that we changed nearly every year. I'm so glad we changed one more time and hired Seattle Auctioneer, April Brown. April proved her expertise instantly. She's been with us five years and our proceeds have grown right along with our friendship.

----Our benefit auction would have been a disaster if it wasn’t for April Brown and her Charity Auction World Team. We had trouble getting into the venue on time and we were running late getting setup on auction day.  April and her team pitched in folding tent cards, distributing menus and making sure everything was ready when the doors open up. We could not have pulled this off without them.

----The best fundraising decision I ever made was hiring April Brown and Charity Auction World for our annual benefit auction gala. It was a bit more expensive than the auctioneers we’ve used, but the financial result was over the top! This was the first time we have ever worked with a team of professionals that included a master of ceremonies and a catalog reader. They enticed our audience to spend $25,000 more than last year! WOW! It was a record night!

----For years we hired an auctioneer who showed up on auction night and usually did an okay job. This year we hired April Brown of Charity Auction World. April nailed it! We made nearly twice as much money.

---- April Brown is the best auctioneer. She made more money for us than we could have possibly imagined!! Even the board members who wanted the TV personality were blown away. We far exceeded our auction goals where it counts, in the bottom line. And they were a blast to work with!

We have many clients we’ve worked with for more than a decade. We are proud to be part of ground breaking research like that of Dr. Russ Saneto, acclaimed neurologist at Seattle Childrens Hospital, whose program for Mitochondrial Medicine and Metabolism research was funded primarily with money raised through 12 years of charity auctions. Incline Village Academy moved from a small church basement and transformed into Lake Tahoe School because of dedicated volunteers, a very effective board and their annual charity auction. Christ the King Catholic School offers an exemplary education and credits their benefit auction with creating the financial stability the school enjoys today. Low Income Housing Institute’s auction gala connects politicians and ordinary citizens and educates the community on the growing need of the homeless.

 April’s advice and training is amazing. I’ve never met anyone with more ideas for helping us raise money. She helped us focus on our resources and avoid mistakes and she’s always ready to try something new. We tried games for the first time and they were a big hit and the way she does the Fund-a- need made everyone feel honored. She got every penny in the room. She understands our strengths and limitations and she saves us time and helps us raise more money. April makes all the difference in how our auction and guest feel about what we do and why we need their personal and financial support.
