“Dan is an absolute pleasure to work with for our live auctions, he keeps the excitement in a room of over 850 bidders and moves through items quickly to keep the momentum moving. Not only is Dan a great auctioneer, but a great person who truly cares for the cause and translates that to the audience during the paddle raise. We are thankful to have worked with Dan for over 4 years and a continued partnership for upcoming Galas.”

“Dan worked with us for our annual Kick-off for Kids fundraiser last September. His style motivated the audience to bid more and he was able to help us have an outstanding fundraiser! If you need an auctioneer, I would recommend Dan to help you get more out of your fundraiser.”

“The R.Ed.I. Foundation’s live auction plays an integral role in meeting our gala fundraising goals. Dan Campbell is extraordinarily adept at engaging his audience, he reads the mood and crowd with exceptional skill. He is superior at quickly captivating the guests. He creates an exciting environment that sets the stage for achieving the highest possible bid. Dan, takes the time to learn about each live auction item. He is brilliant at assisting the guests in understanding and embracing the call to heart, he then masterfully combines the information to create a generous environment of giving. Dan Campbell’s experience, excellent skills and professionalism were the catalyst for the tremendous increase in gala revenue we experienced.”

Kimberly Farah, President, R.Ed.I. Arts and Education Foundation

“We have had the privilege of having Dan serve as our auctioneer at Sharing the Blue for a number of years.  He is one of the most  professional, personable and approachable people I have had the pleasure of knowing.  He has an intuitive skill in communicating the benefits of our cause and in creating an enthusiasm amongst our guests.  His high energy and positive attitude make everyone want to participate in the fun.  Of course, this translates to more money for our auction and our charity.  Last year, he was able to sell not one custom painting but two additional for the artist to deliver at a later date.  It was fantastic!!!! I have been to many charity events over the years and Dan is just the best I have ever seen!  He is a “class act”!

Stacy Bell, Sharing the Blue

“Planning and running a charity golf tournament with 125-150 golfers and banquet attendees is a challenging endevour in itself. Inviting a performance artist to create a piece of art which required a professional auctioneer was a daunting task as well. Luckily, Dan Campbell came to the rescue! Dan is he the epitome of professionalism. When I thought of the prospect of working a crowd, in a highly competitive auction/bidding situation, I simply could not imagine attempting to raise the types of bids that Dan was able to achieve for our charity. He has been an integral part of helping our organization’s annual fundraiser reach new records! I couldn’t be more grateful or recommend Dan any more enthusiastically!”
