The Gala was a smashing success and I heard all positive feedback (even the crabby husbands who never have fun enjoyed this year’s Gala). I had women I had never met before tell me it was the best event Christ Child of Naples has ever had.
I think that the key ingredients to its success were your upbeat presence as the auctioneer, the very professional PowerPoint presentation that you prepared and the large posters you had made for the eight live auction items. You really wowed them!
The Fund the Need idea really took off this year. I heard that the Board was thrilled to have unrestricted funds to commit to our charitable partners. You did a great job of getting these donations.
The underprivileged children of Collier County are the real winners in all of this – and that is what it was all about. Thank you again for a great job. ~ Carol Panek, Co-Chair
Baark! just cannot thank you enough for being the best benefit auctioneer we could have wished for ! Your 100% dedication before , during and afterwards was truly appreciated . The audience had so much fun with you and it was great to be so entertaining AND raise money . With your help we managed to exceed all expectations. Can’t wait for next year already !!

The buzz was great. You get much of the positive feedback. I already recommended you AND I called (another GALA GAL client) Sat AM to tell her to relax and put herself in your hands. What more can I say, except you are the best. ~ Doug Burke, Naples
You are such a doll! Thank you so much for your generous donation to our event. You know we’ll NEVER hold another event without you! You are the absolute best, and I think you did an amazing job. ~
