I was pleased with your staff; they were very professional. It was good that they ran everything very independently as I was busy dealing with other challenges.

We just wanted to send a quick THANK YOU for all of great work yesterday. The auction really was a success. It is a hard room to connect with and you really did a great job. Thank you so much!

“Thank YOU very much for offering such an exciting Silent and Live Auction! I’ve only attended 1 auction before & yours by far was very organized. We received positive feedback about the organization & display of items. The items offered were plenty & varied to all tastes.
You made it appear seamless which was fantastic.
Overall, I thought it was great and I appreciate all your efforts.
It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you next year!”

You and your team have been really great to work with. Super friendly, organized and prompt response to questions. I liked the items you brought to the venue and the way it was set up –not too crowded and a nice variety. The bidding sheets were all clear and easy to read – very professional. The person who was there was also very nice and professional.

The Leading Benefit and Charity Live and Silent Auction Company!

For over 40 years our family-run organization has provided professional charity auction services at fundraising events. From a high-school fundraiser to an a-list celebrity charity gala, we have the experience to raise you the most money.

Equipped with the latest and greatest in industry technology, we are a full service charity auction company catering to a local and global audience. We focus on technologies that earn you the most money, not ones that cost you money.

AFGI is staffed with highly skilled professional charity auctioneers and benefit auction specialists who come from the country’s leading auction schools. They have extensive experience in auction event management and support services. Further, each of our auctioneers has apprenticed with a professional fundraising auction firm, perfecting their skills and mastering their craft before they embarked on their independent paths.

Live Auctioneers

There are three types of auctioneers:

  1. The volunteer or hobbyist is most often unskilled, a self taught community member or even an eager radio or TV personality. Although they may make a good ‘Master of Ceremonies’ for your event, they don’t often make adequate charity auctioneers!
  2. The traditional auctioneer is professionally trained in the craft, but more often than not, they have little if any experience in fundraising auctions; unfortunately this can and will impact your fundraising event.
  3. The AFGI professional charity auctioneer, benefit auctioneer, or fundraising auctioneer comes from an accredited auction school. They are in good standing with the National Auctioneers Association and possess the requisite professional experience to insure your event’s profitability.

Knowing these facts now, which live auctioneer would you choose?

You will receive our consistent professional service, fundraising expertise, auction consulting and superior benefit auctioneer services for every one of your fundraising auctions.
