Charity Auctioneer,Monday Blog on this weeks Charity events
Well it has been a fun week with a lot of traveling up and down the country.A trip to entertain at Edgbaston cricket ground which saw a four hour journey home from Birmingham to Manchester which should normally take one and a half hours!!!!(love the fact they shut the motorway)!!!!!
Charity Auctioneer Events
The two events I would like to cover in this weeks Monday Blog are the events I was asked to take the role of Emcee and Charity Auctioneer as well as performing table magic through the meal.
I genuinely do love performing at these events as I do know as well as performing and entertaining I am adding value by maximising the amount raised for the charity involved. Putting the audience in the right frame of mind by being approachable,amusing and entertaining and by welcoming guests as the emcee then meeting them at close quarters around the tables through the meal even using magic to engage people I can ensure that I can use a familiar approach when it comes time to be the Charity Auctioneer.
In total the auction and raffle over the two nights raised over 30,000 which I am proud to have been a small part in helping to raise as Charity Auctioneer.
Both events were special and raised a lot of money but the headline comment came from the person that had instigated the Rosebank School event
Recently funding had been lost for the Music department and it was going to be closed.As I have learned Music Therapy plays a valuable part in the stimulation and education of Autistic children.
The money raised on Saturday night will enable the Music Therapy department to stay open for at least two more years
With this knowledge it was understandable that there was a lot of emotion in the room.Well done to all involved this was a special night and I was proud to be a small part of it.
My role at these events enables organisers to relax and put the important task of raising money to the front of the nights agenda.As Charity Auctioneer I am always proud to have been part of maximising charity income in a friendly and entertaining way.
Just received this from my contact as well
I hope you got home ok on Saturday night.
I just wanted to thank you personally for all your hard work on Saturday night you were amazing.
You really got everyone in the mood and made me feel totally at ease.
My table were blown away with the magic along with many other people your unbelievably talented.
Good luck for the future I’m sure our paths will cross again one day.
