What do you like best about benefit auctions?
Benefit auctions are build community support as well as funds for an organization. Many people are part of the success - event planners, sponsors, patrons, donors, volunteers, and the auctioneering team. It’s win-win-win for all involved. The auction item donors get to make a difference in the community while marketing to potential clients, the guests get to bid on terrific items and feel good about where the money is going, the organizations are able to build community support while meeting fundraising goals.
What types of organizations are important to you personally?
There are so many important causes, it's difficult for me to choose! One of the reasons I became a charity auctioneer is so that I can learn about the good work that many organizations are doing and be involved in helping them reach their fundraising goals. Over the years, I've been lucky to be able to support many causes both local and global - arts, education, hunger relief, housing, hospitals and health organizations, museums and cultural heritage, animal welfare, environmental conservation and social justice. And last but not least, I love listening to and actively supporting NPR.
What do you enjoy about your role with Allegria Auctions?
I love inspiring people to give a little more, show support for important causes, and have fun while doing good.
If you were a food, what would you be and why?
I would be spearmint. Refreshing taste that goes well with sugar and rum.
