Read just a few of Kevin’s  Professional fundraising auctioneer testimonials:

Dear Kevin, The 6th Annual BASH for Augie’s Quest event at the San Francisco Marriott was a smashing success — and it was due in large part to you! As you know, the evening raised over $1.3 million for ALS research and we could not have done it without your expertise! Your wisdom and charm wowed the crowd, encouraging them to bid throughout the silent auction. Your charisma and infectious smile carried over into the dining room where we were able to raise significant funds with the live auction. Shortly put, you are a consummate professional and we were blessed to have you as part of our team! Augie’s Quest, in conjunction with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), is an aggressive, cure-driven effort singularly focused on treatments and cures for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Thank you once again for being with us! We look forward to a long and successful partnership together at future another successful BASH!

I think Kevin O’Callaghan is a great auctioneer who makes sure everyone is having a good time and at the same time knows just when to push attendees to get the maximum bid. I would definitely recommend him and plan on using him again for our future events.
