“We can’t thank Charles enough for helping us through the auction process.  He was always on top of his game.  Prior to the event, Charles gave us some really helpful tips, but night of, he was amazing.  Charles was upbeat and funny – and our event was a comedy night – and really kept the crowd engaged.  His high energy kept the auction and the pledge moment front and center and most importantly, we exceeded our financial expectations.  Thank you Charles.” Laura Lewis, Executive Director, Johnny Mac Tennis Project

"CK, what a fantastic night! Everyone loved you, your style, your approach and of course your results. The fund a need -$126,650 - was indeed a record breaker!!!"

"Just recovering a bit from this event but you are top of the list to thank big time for an AMAZING job on that auction. As these events go, it was a small crowd with fewer people interested in getting into the bidding, but you handled it so well. I don’t think I remember being more entertained. One of our board members told me in leaving that the auction was their favorite part of the evening, the tougher it got for you the funnier your remarks. I don’t know if you ever want to come back again but we aren’t having another auction if you can’t make it. TYTYTYTY." Ellen Griesedieck, Founder, American Mural Project

"You were FANTASTIC Charles!!! Thank you! The feedback was amazing and we raised nearly $250K! Many guests and vendors have asked for your info so I've been spreading the word of Lot 1!! You were hilarious and the highlight of the night! I hope we can work together soon!" Jen Snyder, Corporate Development Officer, Orbis

"I didn’t even say THANK YOU CHARLES!  It was great to work with you. Throughout the process you’ve been so easy to work with. And I love your energy. I know we have a tough crowd no matter how much we liquor them up!  But you were awesome." Kristin Hokoyama, Development Manager of Special Events, National Hemophilia Foundation

"Just a quick note to extend my personal thanks [to Charles] for being such a lively and engaging auctioneer—especially considering that our crowd insisted on staying chatty throughout the evening! You were amazing and the Gala was tremendously successful!" Christine Walia, Assistant Director of Special Events, Montclair Art Museum

"Charles, thank you SO much for last night! You were a big hit! It was an absolute pleasure working with you, thanks for helping us make it a memorable and SUCCESSFUL evening!" Susanna, Deputy Director of Development, Legal Aid Society

"You [Charles] were amazing. Thank you for everything. Both guests and board members alike commented on what a great job you did. The numbers are still rolling in as a number of guests made donations on their way out, but it looks like we raised close to $100,000! Last year we made $53,000! We almost doubled what we made last year. We are so grateful for all of your advice and guidance before the event and then of course for the auction last night! We'll be calling you again next year and this time we'll have even better auction items to sell!!" Heather, CASA

"We want to thank Charles SO MUCH!!!! Everyone was raving about him and how he really helped make the night a huge success! It was a lot of fun." Jennifer Morris, Parent and auction chair at the Brownstone School

"I worked with Charles when my company, Mida & Associates, organized the 2015 Brady Center Gala in NYC.  Charles was kind enough to take on the Brady Center's Auction at the last minute and was beyond wonderful. Their board, staff, and major donors have been raving about him, and with good reason. In addition to being so easy to work with, Charles was incredible on stage, made the audience feel comfortable, and managed to auction off 8 items in a timely manner. It was nice to see the audience laugh and feel so engaged, all towards the cause of preventing gun violence across the country. With his help, we surpassed all of our fundraising goals for the evening. He was simply more than we could have asked for. I'm going to stay in touch with Charles and will be looking for opportunities to partner with him again in the future as I work with non-profit organizations across the country." Jason Mida, Founder, Mida & Associates

"I want to thank Charles so much for an incredible evening! He restored a lot of faith in the live auction for the powers that be and for that I am incredibly thankful! He was funny, witty, flexible, successful and a pleasure to work with!!! The feedback I received last night and today was a testament to what a pro he is and this is exactly what we needed!" Liz O'Connell, National Director of Special Events, Autism Speaks

"I know I speak for everyone on the Teach For China team, as well as the ‘audience’ in the room, when I say that Charles's auctioneering was one of the evening’s undisputed highlights.  His pace, demeanor, and humor were all spot on, and contributed to making this auction our most successful yet." Andrea Pasinetti, Founder, Teach for China (Hong Kong)

"I cannot thank Charles enough for his invaluable contribution in making tonight the success that it was! He is really such a fantastic auctioneer and definitely far exceeded everyone at Alpha Workshop's expectations! He is really such a star up there and definitely squeezed every last dollar out of the audience! He is a true talent and a total star!" Dana Sandberg, Best & Company

"We all enjoyed Charles's auctioneering!! That was a tough room and he brought the energy up several notches--guests were raving." Carrie Waible, Founder,  CW&Co
