Rhonda and Team's Success Stories
 

Recommendation Letter from First Presbyterian Preschool

March 12, 2015

Hey Rhonda,

Thank you again for all of your help on Saturday night.  Your auctioning skills made a HUGE difference.  I would say you doubled our sales for the live.  We would love to have you back next year!  Please tell your team a huge thank you from us and all the Preschool kids!

Recommendation Letter from The Circle for Children Ball

First, let me say WOW!  We were so impressed with Rhonda and her team.  This is the second auction they have done for us and we can't express in words the difference it has made in having their expertise at the auction. 

Rhonda coached us through her e-book to do "Fund An Item" and this one 8-minute activity inside of our live auction raised over $28,000.00 which is all going straight to our cause!

She promised that her team would "perform" and they did just that.  From the auction emcee to the bid spotters to the Fund An Item clerks and of course Rhonda herself, all of them are professionals at adding the spark to the live entertainment portion of the night, which we call, the live auction.  Not only did we raise a lot of money, we had fun. 

We will continue to use Rhonda and her team and are very grateful to have found her.  I really can't believe that they do all that they do pro-bono.  What a blessing to our community.

Recommendation Letter from Congregation Dor Tamid

Frank, Rhonda, Sabrina, Margie and the rest of the Duffy Team -- you all are awesome.  It was truly a pleasure to meet you and welcome you to our synagogue's 10th Anniversary Gala. 

Because of you and your team, we had a super successful live auction, kept the interest of the crowd and had fun in the heads and tails game.  We are still figuring out our earnings, but we raised thousands of dollars because of your auction expertise and motivation of our crowd. 

You are true professionals and we sincerely want to extend our thanks for your generous donation of time and skill on a Saturday night.  

Thank you...

Denise Abramow, Congregation Dor Tamid

Recommendation Letter from Ahimsa House 10th Anniversary Gala

Frank, Margie, Rhonda, Sabrina and Team,

I am so excited to tell you that we made 147% more at the event this year that last year.  We NETTED $xx,xxx.  Much of that was due to the incredible job Rhonda and all of you did at the live auction, where we made $xx,xxx.  $xxxx was for Fund a Program.

You all were amazing.  Everyone enjoyed themselves and, as a result, spent a lot of money.  All of us at Ahimsa House thank you so very much for helping us have the best event that we've ever had.  I used many of your ideas and they all paid off.  I hope you will consider working with us again next year. 

With much gratitude,
Carole

Success Story from The Cottage School Auction - 2015

Rhonda,

I just wanted to express my most sincere appreciation for your contribution to our first Annual Azalea Festival Gala.  Your professionalism in leading the Live Auction contributed to the success of the evening.  Getting the guests involved from the outset of the live auction helped create a fun and enthusiastic mood.  We especially appreciate your bringing your support team to assist with the process.  We could not be more pleased with the support you provided and your guidance in helping us prepare for the live auction portion of the event.

Thank you so very much for your professionalism and generosity.

Sincerely,
Joe Digieso
The Cottage School

Heads and Tails Game in a Live Auction with Rhonda Duffy

The heads and tails game is a lively game wherein the charity sells a small item for $5 or so and then participants are able to play the game for a prize at the end.  This game will get the crowd into the auction setting and is used as an ice breaker very successfully.

Fund A Program or Item with Rhonda Duffy

As you can see, this is a VERY powerful fundraiser.  It allows the crowd to participate in funding something that they can see and feel good about as a group in different increments.
