Non Profit Providing Services for Special Needs Adults:
I wanted to quickly share what an AMAZING DIFFERENCE that the Murad Team made at our 18th Annual Benefit Dinner and Auction!
Our guests were "a buzz" ….. You made it engaging and fun for everyone!!!!
Certain Steering Committee members had been very skeptical of making the Auctioneer change this year AND they are HANDS DOWN WON OVER… Everyone loved your team!
For some rough comparisons….
* Live Auction in 2016 - 18 items with a purchase to value of 151%
* Live Auction in 2015 - 23 items with a purchase to value of 112% (before Murad)
* Auctioneer “Live” Ask in 2016 - $13,850
* Auction night Athlete collection in 2015 - $1,886
A difference of $22,704… WOW… The purchase to value improvement was Absolutely AWESOME!!
As soon as I have our details for next year; we will be calling to book!
Thank you for the part THE MURAD TEAM played in the success of the auction event!
Animal Advocacy Non Profit:
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for the fantastic job you did for us. You were such a pleasure to work with, not only in preparation for the event, but especially on-site. You really took all the stress off our shoulders, and most importantly, created that all important “first face” to the guests at the gala. Everything was so organized and efficient that it was hard to believe we even considered doing things on our own, rather than hiring Murad! The quality and speed of your reports has been fantastic and has helped us to quickly asses the success of the gala!
Once again you outdid yourself in handling the auction last Saturday night. We received a lot of compliments about the live auction, and your service as an auctioneer is outstanding. We are thoroughly grateful.
