Testimonials

“We were so impressed with your expertise and energy. You were skillful, fun, lively, quick and the teamwork displayed by you and Bob encouraged the bids even higher.”

April Tavares

Procurement Chair, Grand View League

“With your help, we raised much-needed funds to help bring arts education to 18,000 children in our public schools and provide assistance to hundreds of talented artists and arts organizations throughout the county.”

Alberto Råfols

Executive Director, Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County

"Thank you for your superb guidance. You and Rob have been an absolute pleasure to work with... The amount raised far surpassed our wildest dreams. Suffice to say, we could not have run the auction as professionally and efficiently without Rob and you. I was astounded when Rob was able to leave with all of the cashiering completed about 35-40 minutes after the end of the event. "
