Beyond my wildest dreams!

[I]t was SUCH a pleasure working with you and Steve! You two were so calm and tremendously effective. Beyond my wildest dreams, the outcome of our night!

Our event raised an all time record amount!

With limited time left in planning and no volunteers on the horizon, our Spring Benefit Committee at Shore Country Day School in Beverly, MA was becoming desperate for an auctioneer.  After a call to a national auctioneer organization in Colorado, Alpenglow Benefit Auctions was recommended to us as a local contact.

After speaking to Ailie Byers on the phone there was an instant connection.  With every dollar going back to programming and the students, she responded to our need to raise as much funds in this one event as possible.

During planning, she demonstrated passion for education and got to know our school.  She asked pertinent questions, offered relevant advice, and assisted us in planning important details of our auction.  She was always available, efficient, and professional.  Ailie was a pleasure to work with.

The night of our benefit she and her colleague Steve arrived early with calm smiles and a contagious enthusiasm.  This carried on through out the night.  Ailie immediately connected with our guests.  She sensed naturally how far to take each item and made us all laugh along the way.  Although it seemed effortless she clearly had strategy and a host of techniques.  She was having fun; therefor our crowd was having fun. By the end of the evening our event raised an all time record amount!  We greatly attribute this success to Ailie and Steve, and highly recommend them for any event.

Comments from our guest after the event:

“I loved your auctioneer!”
“It was so fun and refreshing to have a woman auctioneer!”
“I thought Ailie was so much fun! I will keep her in mind for future events.”
“Although we knew we were going to support the cause tonight we didn’t know we’d have so much fun doing it!”
“Whatever you paid that woman - you should pay her double!”
“Thank goodness you found Ailie.”
