I cannot express enough gratitude for your support and guidance throughout Music for the Animals. It was truly a pleasure working with and learning from you. Your support and your amazing team, helped us put together one of our best events. Thank you! We are thrilled to have partnered with Charity Auction World and look forward to continuing to work with you for years to come.
Seattle University Law School
Thanks for all the advice and support you gave us leading up to the auction. I knew we could count on you and your team to help us reach our auction goal. Several professors won the trips to Italy and Africa and they are excited about going. It was a great night and I couldn't have done it without you.

I cannot quote any numbers just yet, but from where we stand it looks like we have well-exceeded last year's numbers. Yay! Everyone I have spoken with had a wonderful time last night and enjoyed a great party. April, you were a whiz at finding extra money hanging out in people's wallets. Everyone is quite thrilled with the outcome and, speaking on behalf of the auction chairs and myself, we really enjoyed working with you and building that relationship. Charity Auction World is a top rate business! Thank you again for helping us turn out a super successful auction. It was a pleasure.

I want to thank you for the wonderful performance and help planning our auction. You are easy to work with and I appreciate your flexibility around all the changes.
Tacoms COMMUNITY COLLEGE
The Tacoma Wine Classic is the crown jewel of our fundraising and we wouldn't trust just any auctioneer with our event. April provides professional catalog reader and master of ceremonies and this makes a big difference in the entertainment value and the seamless transitions with our wine auction. We raise more money every year and I credit April for being part of our success.
Pacific Northwest Ballet
The Pacific Northwest Ballet Gala is held on opening night each year and it's an important part of our supporters experience. The gala has to move quickly & April is able to take direction while sharing the stage with our star performers. Since we sell so few items we expect them to sell for top dollar. Last year we made more money in the first three live auction packages than we did in the entire auction the year before.
FAmilies for Effective Autism Treatment
April is as passionate about conducting auctions for charity as we are about the missions we support. Her enthusiasm for is infectious, ensuring every guest has a terrific time and all items garner the highest bids. Her combination of presence and skills is why I look to her and continue my hearty endorsement of April to colleagues ever since she and I met many years ago.
Pacific Northern Academy
April Brown and Charity Auction World have been part of our auction for more than a decade. Her auctioneers are professional and excellent to work with. Michelle, April and Kevin had worked with us many times and we've never been disappointed. Quite the contrary. We know we can trust them for good advice while planning the auction and a stellar performance on auction night.
Mitochondrial Research Foundation
We look forward to our auction every year because we know we never have to worry about the auctioneer. I attend lots of auctions but I've never met another auctioneer who is as personable and engaging as she is with our auction. She's funny and keeps our auction moving. April has been our auctioneer for 15 years and we can't imagine hiring anyone else.
You are amazing! Last night was so much fun. Thanks for handling the sound and other technical issues with aplomb. Mike is so good and both you and Michelle are the best auctioneers. We look forward to working with you year after year.
The Meridian School
"You did a great job April. You made the auction fun and exciting. We raised a lot of money tonight thanks to you and your team"
Wow - thank you just does not capture all you did for us yesterday. We are so appreciate for all your training, mentoring and ideas to make our event grow to the next level. You are a gem to the non-profit world and to Team Works.
Arthritis Foundation -Seattle
We always look forward to our auction because we know we can count on you to be fun and entertaining. You are a great auctioneer and thank you for helping us set a record again in 2017.
Mountlake Terrace Booster Club
You ask me what I like best about what you do? Besides your excellent auctioneering skills and great ideas for changing our auction up each year, it's this. You are so easy to work with and make planning our auction easier all the way around. Your training materials are spot on and help to reduce our busy work and time we spend planning the auction. We love working with you and we are sold on the "auction team" concept.
