LIVE & SILENT AUCTIONS – CHARITY FUNDRAISING EVENTS

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.
