Thank you SOOOOO much for being an extraordinary auctioneer! Holy smokes the live auction went beautifully (and raised so much more than we thought it would), and I was moved to tears by the Fund the Fight. No joke, I'm the only person who cried during Fund the Fight over the mission moment or grand total LOL.  I was truly blown away! Thank you for making our event so fantastic!!!

Hey Mike 

Thanks so much for kicking ass once again. I cannot believe how much the auction raised!  Bravo!  We love working with you and our audience really responds to you and your energy as our auctioneer. Appreciate everything!

Hi Mike

Hope you are well. As a Rollo Invitational Committee Member, I wanted to personally thank and congratulate you on a fantastic delivery last night. You really knocked it out of the park! You genuinely captured the moment and were able to convey what it means to be part of the Mater Dei Football Program. Your execution was impressive and you made it seem personal, which to me is the key! Great job! 
Thanks again for your help and we look forward to having you in 2018!

You were awesome! I don't think we could have squeezed more out of the crowd. Your passion and enthusiasm was infectious. Thank you!

Hi Mike  

You were awesome! Everyone loved the live auction and especially the athletes... which was pretty cool. I had two athletes at my table and they were cheering on the bidder/winner and loving it!  
You made it fun! Very successful! And interactive! Thanks for the spirit and expertise you brought to us. I left Judy a message on my way home and told her how amazing you were. Let’s do this again! Thanks for helping support our mission to save lives and build champions!

Hi Mike

You were just amazing.   Watching you raise all that money was something else.  You looked great, sounded great, and the museum owes YOU deep thanks.  We will meet up again soon.  In the meantime, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being prepared, professional, perfectly aligned with the spirit of the evening, and for being at the top of your game when it counted most.  You're the best.

Hi Mike

All of us are pinching ourselves at how incredibly fun, exciting, and lucrative the auction was last night!  Thank you for all you did to bring humor, dynamism, and success to it.  You managed to get a lot of paddles in the air.  I can’t believe the Otello at the H. Bowl went for $7K.  Between the Limoncello and the Italy packages, we had not only a record-breaking auction, but also a record-breaking gala overall!

Hi Mike

Thank you for making this so much fun!  We could not have done this without you!  $174K my friend.  WTG!


Hi Mike

Let’s be honest… YOU knocked it out of the park.

 Thank you for being such a joy to work with. I hope to be able to collaborate again soon!
