• FUN Year in Review, Part 1: Thank You!

    Happy New Year!

    I hope you’re ready for a wonderful 2018 filled with fun, abundance, joy and treasured moments. Before looking ahead, I want to convey a heartfelt thank-you to all of our supporters and nonprofit organizations for trusting me, and the FUNauctions team, to serve as your benefit auctioneer and auction strategist.

    I am so appreciative of the confidence you have placed in our abilities that led to our most successful year ever in 2017. I’m especially grateful for these three things from the past year:

    • $8 million in record-breaking gross revenue for non-profit organizations
    • Generous donors and volunteers
    • Creativity and new partnerships

    Together we helped Central Texas nonprofit organizations exceed their goals and expand their services. It was a privilege to work with groups with events ranging from 150 to 1,000 attendees and raise $50,000 to $1,100,000!

    May 2018 be your best year yet!
