Local Celebrities, Parents or Friends of the Organization may be tempting to use as the Live Auctioneer; however, it takes more than a strong voice and quick wit to make a good bid caller. Professional Auctioneers are trained on reading a crowd, exciting the audience and initiating a competitive spirit between donors. Setting a fast pace with high energy will create an entertaining part of your overall event, will increase profits and have your donors returning year after year.
