Chuck Dukas is beyond amazing! Our private schools 60th Anniversary & Annual Benefit was a huge success! Our aim was to raise up our scholarship fund. With Chuck's incredible talent & professionalism, we raised over 500% from last year on our paddle raise alone! Chuck was carefully selected 6 mths prior to our event as our emcee/auctioneer. He made himself available for face to face planning meets, emails, & telephone calls leading up to event. He even donated a few show experiences to our auction which raised us an addt'l 6K on top!! Chucks professionalism, care, & passion cannot be overstated! He is one gifted human being! Can't wait to have him back!

Chuck was a true professional. He arrived promptly at the event, was happy to mingle and meet our guests, and stayed attentive throughout the meetings. Chuck was eager to help and more than willing to go the extra mile. He added just the right amount of flair and panache to our event that otherwise would have been lacking. THANK YOU CHUCK!

My experience working with Chuck Dukas was superior. Chuck is a consummate professional. We met before the event to go over the timeline and review the silent, live and paddle for a cause portions of the event. Chuck familiarized himself with all of the items and even secured fun, Hollywood experience packages to donate to the silent auction. During the event, Chuck introduced himself to all of the Board members and VIPs attending. Chuck did a fabulous job instilling enthusiasm among all of the attendees. With his energy and professionalism, he was able to motivate guests to raise their bids. Everyone was impressed with his performance and stage presence.

Chuck Dukas was simply amazing! We could not have asked for a more professional, nicer person to be the voice of our Charity event on October 11th 2014. He gave me references when he first contacted me, he offered to come meet me as many times as I needed before the event and he did an amazing job all night long! He arrived early and got prepared and asked good questions, he had control of the crowd all night and even added in some of his personal flair that helped us earn even more money during the paddle raise! We found him on gig masters- we are so happy with our decision!

Chuck Dukas was hired to serve as an auctioneer for an auction that benefits a charity that our organization sponsors. Not only did he win over a very tough crowd as auctioneer, he educated the crowd and entertained them as well. All in all, Chuck helped our organization raise a great deal more than we expected. Chuck was very professional, accommodating and engaging. Weeks following the event, we are still receiving a great deal of compliments about his work. And the greatest compliment of all is that talks are underway to replicate the same event next year with Chuck in mind! Thanks again for the spectacular work, Chuck!

Chuck was an MC for our wedding, and I have to say, we were lucky to have him! Not only did he do an amazing job hosting the wedding, he was of huge help in the planning process as well. Chuck went above and beyond in each step of the way, and I really have to commend him on always having a great attitude. We received nothing but positive feedback from our guests about Chuck (but we were not surprised) and we thank him for being part of our special day. Marian & Paul

Chuck was fantastic to work with, made himself available to discuss our event on multiple occasions. Professional, easy to get a long with, accommodating and enjoyable to work along side. He did a fantastic job with our Awards night and took cue's on the fly! We would recommend Chuck to other clients and potential customers. Wishing Chuck much success in the near future! Best,

Chuck came through for my nonprofit gala last minute and he saved the day! My previous MC backed out 2 days before the event, and we SCORED with Chuck. I can honestly say he was the single best decision we made for the event. He was incredibly professional, he pumped up the crowd, and got many of our guests to bid on auction items as he is a very skilled auctioneer! I can not say thank you enough, Chuck! We look forward to working with you every year as you can help us grow our annual fundraisers!

Our host cancelled on our fundraising event last notice and Chuck saved our event with only 1 week to prepare! He took the time to still meet with us beforehand, was in contact with us to make sure he had all the information, and showed up early to go over the entire night with us - he also gave us SO many good pointers for improving our event which we will definitely be using! He helped us raise thousands of dollars MORE than ANY of our other fundraising events! The best part about Chuck is his passion, not just for hosting/auctions, but he truly wanted to help our foundation! We will be booking him for EVERY future event we have - we HIGHLY recommend him!

Crespi Carmelite High School was extremely pleased with Chuck's overall experience, professionalism, and performance on the night of our gala auction. Chuck's energy was on fire, and our live auction was a huge success because of it. From the moment the audience heard his voice, they knew a great show was about to begin. In addition he brought several silent auction items for us to auction off. Chuck is easy to work with and is willing to meet with you prior to the auction so that he is prepared the night of the gala. Crespi has already booked Chuck for next year's event. Thank you Chuck for making our 2016 gala auction a huge success!

Chuck was fantastic and exceeded our expectations from start to finish. He was able to take our vision of how we wanted to event to flow and ultimately improved on that even further. The guests at our event loved him, and raved about what a great job he did. I just can not say enough about what a true pleasure it was to work with Chuck and how much he really helped to make our event a smashing success.
