"I have been the Chairman of the Orchard Lake St. Mary's Preparatory Auction for the past five years. Our annual auction typically raise $200,000 or more. In 2014, we hired Kenny Lindsay as our professional auctioneer for our event with the expectation that he would add excitement to the live portion of and help us raise more money. We had high expectations, and worked diligently with Kenny to put together an exciting array of live auction items. Kenny and his team exceed all of our expectations. We reaised substantially more money in our live auction than in previous years, we created a level of excitement for our Live event that carried over into the following year, and we received many compliments from our patrons. The most important benefit we received from working with Kenny is a different and more professional perspective into how we run our event." - Rusty Korhonen, Auction Chairman, St. Mary's Preparatory
