I began my career in 1992 as a graduate of Missouri Auction School. 2017 marks my 25th year as an auctioneer and owner of Charity Auction World. I get a thrill from every aspect of the auction process. I love to collaborate and find that clients like to customize every auction to be unique to their audience and supporters. Together we will utilize the strengths of the organization while finessing the less than optimal variables. Clients can choose workshops and meetings to reflect their interests and needs and calm the planning jitters. Many of the innovative profit centers like the Dessert Dash, Lucky Squares, Mobile Bid Boards, One Bid Board, Word Up, Lucky Letter, Loaded Bid Paddle, and Heads and Tails - emerged through creative collaboration with the non-profit organizations I serve.
From initial consultation to auction event planning, we can transform the predictable and dry event into a must-be-at affair. We develop new and engaging money making ideas that will increase participation and win new supporters. My techniques help your guests spend more money than they ever dreamed possible while reducing unprofitable busy work.
So get real. Let’s schedule a time to talk. 206.235.4697 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
April Brown is a woman of many “firsts” and her career history is a record of her adventurous life. She’s owned a restaurant, worked as a carpenter and standup comedienne and is one of the first women in the 1970’s to begin a career in law enforcement as a patrol officer. In 2008 she started Charity Getaways, a travel consignment company to help her clients raise more money. Her passion for people and the planet is rooted in a perspective gained from her travels. If that's not enough, April’s love of animals prompted her to establish Whisker City Cat Rescue, a feline rescue organization in Shoreline. Whisker City is an adoption sanctuary and base for the Whiskers on Wheels mobile adoption bus.
April Brown is the author of Poetic Justice, an exposé on the world of copyright trolling. In 2011, she became the target of an aggressive and abusive copyright troll and decided to fight back. Poetic Justice is the first book written about the victims of the sleazy and controversial practice of entrapping innocent people who share content on the Internet.
When April isn’t traveling the country conducting auctions and rescuing animals, she’s circling the globe searching for travel destinations for Charity Getaways. She makes her home in Shoreline with her pets and endless home improvement projects.
