Every fundraising event is an assemblage of moving parts.

I offer a critical eye and solid solutions concerning:


  • Live auction, silent auction and special appeal strategy
  • Board participation
  • Mobile technology 
  • Audio/visual and venue logistics
  • Show-flow, agenda and program​ming
  • Givers, corporate sponsors and community partners
  • Your unique challenges and goals

  • Unlimited number of board, planning team, staff and/or volunteer planning/brainstorming meetings in person

  • Unlimited consultation via email 

  • Strategy tips for building strong live and silent auctions (what makes a great auction item, how to find/secure it)

  • Strategic planning for a successful special appeal/paddle raiser

  • Attendees/partners (how to fill your room with givers and create relationships with long term supporters, corporate and community partners)

  • Role of emcee/announcer, if requested

  • Show flow/agenda-crafting (smart programming)

  • Advance venue walkthrough, event logistics (audio/visual need assessment, physical set-up)

  • Early arrival at event for sound check, final preparations, and 5-minute "recording clerk training" with your volunteers, if needed

  • ​Complimentary bidder cards and recording sheets

  • Post-event wrap-up and review

Your mission, fundraising goals, event history and footprint are not like any other's. As a fundraising strategist with 25 years of auctioneering, event planning, fundraising and communications experience, I will assess your history and your needs, delivering useful, cutting edge and solid solutions as I work with your team of planners, board members, staff and volunteers. Together we'll strategize so the moving parts of your plan come together, taking your event to its potential best.
