About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Jim is a professional Benefit/Charity/Fundraising Auctioneer. He is recognized as one of the most effective and entertaining Charity Auctioneers in the country, and is an expert in Benefit Galas and Auctions. He focuses on first class Auction Fundraising for 501(c)(3) Charitable Organizations. Jim has helped raise millions of dollars for charity through auction events, charity golf tournaments, benefit fashion shows, and his unique abilities as an Emcee. He works one-on-one with a tight-knit client base that allows him to concentrate on each charity, school and organization that he helps and he proudly maintains a 95% client retention rate. While based in Southern California, he is available anywhere in the US or Canada. Jim has helped plan countless successful fundraising auctions, joined forces on numerous prestigious celebrity galas— including recently selling a dinner for 10 valued at $2,500 for a whopping $30,000…and just to top it off, he then sold it AGAIN for another $30,000! Jim is also an expert at the popular and critical Fund-a-Need concept, and has repeatedly pulled in bids of $100,000 or higher. He has also been awarded the Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation by the National Auctioneers Association (NAA) Education Institute; there are less than 300 auctioneers around the world who have acquired the BAS professional designation. But wait... there's more! When the National Auctioneers Association recently decided to rewrite their entire Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation course, Jim was one of three auctioneers on the planet invited to help rewrite the course! Plus he's REAL funny, and his Mom says he's cute.

Jim, your FANTASTIC team was a huge part of our very successful event on Saturday night. We are a seasoned event and have had great success over the years, so imagine our surprise when you helped us raise over $150,000 MORE than last year's event! AMAZING! I'd be thrilled to be a reference for you and your team (in fact, I gave a glowing referral to someone just last night who was at our event and called to inquire for their event in October)! Anytime you need an endorsement for marketing purposes, I'd be happy to provide that as well. Thank you again from this very happy Director of Development; please know that you are at the top of our list for future events!

Jim - Thank you for your expertise, care and talents. Your idea to sell a $100 bill (and the $5,000 it brought in) was flat out awesome. And you sold 4 Rodeo tickets worth $1,500 for $7,500…WHAT? I'm blown away by the energy that filled the room. That's thanks to you! Our live auction set a revenue record, which will directly support our scholarship fund. You were exceptionally well prepared for OUR specific event, and guests responded with generosity because of it. We were very pleased with you from the beginning, through all the indispensable planning calls, through the event end. We WILL see you at our next event!
