On behalf of Jobee and my client MetroHealth in Cleveland, Ohio, I would like to thank Auction Brio for the amazing job you did as our event auctioneer and the consulting and advisory role you provided during for the GALA planning.
Auction Brio was exceptional at providing creative ideas around auction packages, and applicable tools for our auction chair and team to use to reach our auction goals. Fresh concepts were introduced to us from you that led us to produce a successful silent auction. Our live auction was also a success much due to your feedback and advice on positioning the auction items and how to appeal to our audience to raise the largest bids. All of your strategies for both the silent and live auctions were beneficial in helping us reach our auction goals.
The fund-the-need component was also a huge success for our GALA, and your direction and creative concepts on how to keep the program cohesive made it possible for us to ask for the dollars needed and create a positive energy during this portion of the event.
The several months of planning and your continual emails, phone calls, in-person consulting meetings and strategic information you shared electronically, gave me the confidence that you were committed to our success as a non-profit group and that you were willing to work with us to ensure a positive outcome.
We received many compliments on your ability to manage our crowd and work with our guests to create excitement, fun and a profitable outcome. Your delivery during the live auction and fund-the-need were a perfect fit for our event and did not feel like a cattle call or common auction. Your approach, and ability to connect with the guests was the key to bringing in the dollars needed for this event. We exceeded our financial goals!
I think all organizations would benefit from using Auction Brio! You customize your consulting to the needs of the organization. You listen to the client and direct the fundraising efforts to include sponsors, supporters, chairs and all components necessary for a successful event. Your experience with non-profit and profit organizations is a clear sign of your success. Thank you for your direction during our planning, executing and post event follow up. I hope to work with you again in the near future.
