Cheers

We are very proud of the accolades, recommendation letters and references we have accumulated from so many worthy causes where we have had the privilege to be involved. Below are excerpts from some of our references. Should you like to speak with our reference list please contact us and we will be happy to put you in touch.

It is most refreshing having you guiding our organization to transform our fundraising dinner. Your confidence and expertise make it easy for me to be open to new ideas. I can feel the Dinner Committee members are on the same page.

 

You're opening our eyes to new possibilities.  Isn't cool that you are doing for our organization what we are doing for youth, under-employed and unemployed individuals?! Rather cool.

 

Thank you Renee!

— Executive Director, National Social Services Provider

I just wanted to thank you again for the marvelous job you and your company did at our 20th Anniversary Gala with George W. Bush. Everything went great – even when the Secret Service threw us curveballs! Your people didn't even bat an eye!

 

I will not do another fundraising event without you and your team. My only regret is that i didnt bring you in sooner. The fact that you can help with all the planning from beginning to end is a huge bonus. Not only does one get the best auction I have ever seen, but also a great team who can guide staff and volunteers through the process of putting on a fabulous event.

 

The check-in, check-out process was flawless. The goals we set with you were met and some even surpassed which was amazing since we had gala chairs with HIGH expectations! Your auctioneering was flawless. I always cringe when I am at events where the auctioneer has to restart or there is confusion about bidding. Our event was perfect.

 

I will spread the word that Houston and Chicago no longer have the monopoly on great event fundraising support! Thanks again.

 

-- Operations Director, Educational Foundation

Renee Jones and her team of dedicated and experienced professionals have been a part of our team for almost 10 years. Our annual Hall of Fame Gala has been a successful fundraising event with revenues increasing every year.

We contract with National Fundraising Solutions to handle event registration and auction services. Their team is friendly, efficient and knowledgeable as our guests arrive for check-in at the event.

 

During our auctions: Live, Big Board and Paddles Up – Renee and her team of auctioneers are engaging and interacting with our bidders. They build momentum helping create excitement and participation without being officious.

 

Renee has extensive knowledge, experience and dedication to her client's needs. She understands the mission of our non-profit organization, as well as the history of our event and how our guests support our organization. Renee is innovative with new ideas, implements procedures and practices to ensure maximum revenue and accurate reporting. Tireless hours of dedication and support from Renee and her team are their normal business practices. I can reach out to Renee for advice, recommendations and guidance throughout the year, even though our event is only one (1) evening a year.
She connects her clients. Renee understands the results we expect, and what we will or will not implement based on our supporters past behavior, while informing us of new fundraising tactics which are becoming new industry standards.

 

Renee has always been accountable, proactive and prepared – I never have to worry about the quality and services which she and her team will provide. EXCEPTIONAL!
Thank you for sharing your talent and expertise to us Renee!

Last year, I had the pleasure of working with Renee Jones for the live auction portion of the event.  She was such a joy to work with and the best auctioneer we’ve had since this event was created 5 years ago.  Not only was she knowledgeable about the packages, but she was engaging and boosted our live auction sales 30% from the year prior!

 

I have asked her to come back this year and will continue to do so as long as she is available.  She brought a new level of professionalism and humor to the live auction.  The guests love her and she was a breeze to work with.  I highly recommend her for any live auction in the future.  

 

-- Director of Development, A National Healthcare Fundraising Organization

We recommend the services of Renee Jones, whose exceptional skill as an auctioneer has greatly helped our international school raise funds at two of its gala auction events. In addition to her skills in front of an audience of bidders, her in-depth knowledge of how auctions function and her experience gained through consulting groups on fundraising events has been invaluable to our school. During the event she is highly professional and has the ability to make spur-of-the-moment decisions that lead to the success of the event.
 
I would highly recommend any organization looking to raise funds to work with Renée.

You have worked with our organization for several years now. This, however, is my first year running our annual school auction. I want to thank you for taking the time to discuss the process, give suggestions, and help me with the software.

 

Everything ran smooth-from check-in to the time people were leaving. I love that there were essentially no line waiting to get into the event. It really makes a difference having the software set up ahead of time and your staff there to welcome each person as they enter. And, because you had already swiped their credit cards at check-in, everyone was free to leave when they wanted! They did not have to stop back to check-out at the end of the night.

 

Also, the idea to have donation amounts on the back of the bid cards is so great too! I had one many walk up to me and hand me his bid card and said to charge him $500! I know that your staff were also able to ask people that were leaving if they would like to make a donation and they were able to get over $3,000 more!

Overall, everyone had a great time, the party was a great success and we had another record-breaking auction!
Thanks for everything!

Renee Jones and her team get a A++! They were so great with all of our needs for a successful event. The team went above and beyond what was expected of them and this being my first auction I was thoroughly impressed. Renee knew how to handle all our guests with such respect that i cannot wait to use her again at our next event.

 

I am so happy to have worked with Renee and her team. Anyone that needs help with a gala or auction should definitely call Renee Jones.

 

-- Manager of Communications and Special Events, A Private School

What a tremendous job you and your staff did last night. I am so sorry we starved y'all! Your genuine interest and support of our organization is so evident! You did a fabulous job. Thank you, thank you...

 

-- Event Chair, Private School

This is the first year we had a professional auctioneer involved and as I had hoped, you brought in substantially more revenue than in years past and in fact exceeded my expectations for this year.

 

Your insights and suggestions on how best to structure the auction and additional activities were extremely valuable to me as event Chair. I have gotten wonderful feedback from guests and other board members who were in attendance. You made the auction as entertaining and fun as the rest of the evening and your flexibility with our timing helpedus make the runway show run smoothly. Your ability to take my last minute additions and run with the was admirable as well.

 

The success we had in raising funds and the attention you garnered for the auction is going to be very helpful to me in planning our event next year and getting our sponsors and board members on board earlier with donations for the auction itself.

 

Again, your experienc and suggestions were critical to me in planning and executing this part of our event and I'm very greatful for your assistance. I hope that you will put us on your calendar for next year as well as we would love to have you back.

Thank you again for your help with our live auction at our 6th annual luncheon. For the second year in a row, you more than exceeded our expectations and goals! There were nearly 400 people in attendance. This was the third year that we included a live auction and Bid for Service component to the program.

 

Thanks in large part to you; it raised more than $60,000 for our cause. We have received tremendous feedback on our live auction.

 

Many of our guests commented on the great energy level that you brought to the room...We researched other auctioneers and your were the most reasonably priced by far. Your commitment of helping raise money for not-for-profits, while keeping the cost low, is admirable.
