Feedback from previous Workshops ...

"We did everything you said to do in the Workshop, and increased our revenue from $189,000 last year to over $525,000 this year!  The entire school is buzzing!"   Betsy Marchiorlatti-Mariners Christian School, Newport Beach  

"I wanted you to know that after I took your Auction Workshop in Chicago, we put some of your ideas to action. We used "Fund an Item" for our teacher endowment fund and raised an additional $10, 500!  With your tips, we raised over $83,000 in our silent and live auctions, where last year we raised only $42,000.  I'm thrilled I took the Workshop, and wanted to thank you for all your ideas and help.  Thanks a million!"  Mary K. Marmo, Morgan Park Academy, Chicago

"I was extremely pleased once I attended Jay's Workshop and learned several new ideas on running our charity auction...I thought I had tried every trick in the book as far as our auction was concerned, but Jay had fabulous ideas that will help us generate more revenue for the Ronald McDonald Houses of North Carolina."  Pam Crocker, Michael Jordan Celebrity Golf Classic

 "I thoroughly enjoyed your seminar and learned a ton of useful information.  I'd absolutely recommend the seminar to anybody who puts on fundraisers!"  Virginia Tinley, Executive Director Challenged Athletes, Inc., San Diego
