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!

It is approximately 100 meters up the hill from Cortona’s main Piazza Repubblica where people congregate throughout the day to talk, shop and eat. Casa San Marco consists of 4 bedrooms; 3 with queen beds, and 1 with 2 twin beds. In addition, there is a queen-size pull-out sofa bed in the library/den. The house will sleep 8-10 people. On the main floor is a large living room with an adjoining library/den that opens out onto a spectacular terrace where one can sit and enjoy the magnificent views and watch the sunset with a glass of local wine. The spacious kitchen has been completely remodeled and has a large dining area. One of the features is a custom-made Carrara marble sink/countertop and a handbuilt Tuscan grill/fireplace – a wonderful way to cook and prepare food! The ceilings are quite high and there are 2 large arched original windows that overlook Via San Marco. There are two full baths (one on each floor) along with a washing machine.

Casa San Marco, occupies the upper two floors of a three-story medieval stone structure. The house is situated directly above the stunning Church of San Francesco and overlooks the entire ValdiChiana and the northern tip of Lake Trasimeno. It is flanked on three sides by charming cobblestone streets, which provides for an ample amount of light throughout the house.
