There are few such individuals in the world that hold this designation. This assures you that you will have the very best in your charity, benefit, or fundraiser. Walt is available to meet with your committee or team and with discussion or even video presentations. This aids your team in not only putting together a great auction, but also all around fundraising ideas for your entire event.
Major Tip: Do NOT wait until after dinner or after entertainment to raise money. Why? It’s too late and by that time many of your guests are tired, inattentive or worst yet – gone. You can not raise money when your supporters are driving home in their car! It is imperative to strategically schedule your Live Auction and Fund a Need Appeal EARLY in the event when your guests are attentive, awake and ready to bid. You will maximize fundraising when you position your Live Auction and Fund a Need Appeal before or during dinner. Save awards and entertainment for your grand finale.

Walt brings in the crowds! The big donations! He controls and mesmurizes the crowd, he moves into the crowd, he goes into their minds and teaches them how important it is to give good honest hard earned dollars to a true need. He engages the crowd. When possible, he includes a big autograph and picture signing event at the end of his auction. The kids love him! Families love him! Young and old alike. When he's done, he has to have a driver as he is so mentally and physically drained and is incapable of driving himself most of the time. He puts on an exhausting and riveting, yet emotional event.
What does he do? Fired with a tremendious drive and ambition for a total success, Walt brings people together with love and hope. He studies the victim(s) of the event. Then he delivers the money that is so needed for the event success. Whatever it takes, Walt has the energy, the craving, and the expertise to bring what is needed. Usually arriving early moving about the folks in the crowd, he is there in hopes of breaking Records. Making the quota, but most of all he will raise the bar so high it's impossible to duplicate.
Breaking Records and Taking Names, Just ask;
