"You are an incredible powerhouse of an auctioneer/teacher/organizer! I learned so much. At today’s auction seminar I realized that organizing an auction is really like choreographing a complicated dance, one with hundreds of moving parts. Kathy walked us through the process of figuring out what the parts are and how to put them all together, so that they not only produce a good night’s profit, but in the long run, create for the participants a sense of community and an understanding of the importance of giving. It’s not just a one-night event — it’s an important (and fun!) building block in an organization’s diverse, multi-level fundraising plan."
