“Thank you again for doing such a great job with our auction last night. The feedback we’ve received from our members, staff and executives is all positive. Everyone had great fun… you made it lively, held everyone’s interest, added timely humor to keep everyone engaged, and made it entertaining. I appreciate your guidance and advice prior to our event… all went smoothly. And what a treat to see you in action, and to have your mother participate as your assistant auctioneer. You make a fabulous team… we all loved the interplay and handoffs.”

Erin is a truly gifted auctioneer who captivated our audience with her exhilarating stage presence, sense of humour, warmth and sincerity and her genuine passion for hosting benefit auctions. She has a special talent for engaging everyone’s attention and making every auction participant feel valued and appreciated. I would also like to thank Erin and her team for being so generous with their time and for their professional guidance throughout the event planning process. Erin’s innovative ideas and flexible personality make her wonderful to work with. Star Benefit Auctions’ high standards and expertise made a world of difference in our ability to exceed our fundraising goals and to raise the “fun-factor” for our guests. I personally recommend Erin and her team in the highest regard—they are worth their weight in gold and they paid for themselves with creative ideas they introduced and incorporated into our event.

“We want to send a huge thank you to Erin Ward and her team at Star Benefit Auctions for their amazing efforts at the CEW Foundation’s 2015 Beauty of Giving Luncheon! This event is Cancer and Careers biggest fundraising of the year, benefitting all of our programs that empower and educate people with cancer to thrive in the workplace. Erin was professional, organized and thoughtful throughout the whole process. Her expert consultation and guidance – from the planning & strategy stages to event execution – helped to make this our most successful and impactful auction to date! Our guests had an extremely positive experience as well. They were engaged and entertained, raising their paddles to donate over $160,000 through our Live & Direct Pledge Auctions. We’d highly recommend Erin and Star Benefit Auctions to any nonprofit looking for an auctioneer who is as pleasant to work with as she is talented!”
