Honestly, my head is still reeling from what happened in the room on the night of our event. I have been a fundraiser for over 20 years and I never experienced anything like it. Your team is incredible! The Auction Team! Four people, with Scott as the lead. Our event was a casual Super Bowl themed event. Scott and his team came with with whistles wearing referee outfits. They were kind and gracious to our guests, never assumed they were the stars of the show (which they were!) and did everything perfectly. I have worked with other auction groups and none come close to the way they can captivate and motivate guests.
