Chris’s accolades do not end at licensed auctioneer; he is also a Realtor, and Instructor at the Florida Auctioneer Academy and has parlayed his education into an extremely successful sales career that continues to deliver brilliantly on the auction stage.
A community-minded philanthropist, Chris has served for several years on the Board of Directors for the Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce, chaired several fundraising committees, and acts as the mentor, advisor, and liaison to a group known as the Bay Area Young Professionals.
His willingness to give back to the community was acknowledged when Chris was named the Honorary Mayor of Palm Harbor in 2006. His unique ability to understand the needs of charitable foundations has been the cornerstone for the approach Chris takes to benefit auctions and raising charitable funds for worthy causes on a national level.
Chris is a lifelong resident of the Tampa Bay Area with an entertainer’s heart. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Central Florida in Radio and Television.
Whether he is selling Christmas trees for the Mayor’s Breakfast or once-in-a-lifetime experiences abroad, Chris has an incredible gift for getting “one more bid” and achieving goals that keep organizations stimulated and booking him years in advance.
John and Christy are a power duo. John is a licensed auctioneer who has been on stage entertaining and helping charities raise money for over 15 years, while Christy is a professional Gala consultant who has been privileged to help lead countless non-profit organizations to new heights.
John and Christy are successful business owners who are established in the Tampa Bay Community. They began their benefit auction careers after attending various galas and fundraisers as guests and donors and soon found themselves as vital members of several nonprofit organizations’ planning committees; John and Christy’s priority shifted to helping others, not merely as donors, but by volunteering their time and talent.
After dozens of events, hundreds of hours planning, and copious amounts of fun, the inquiries started rolling in. People were asking if they would sit on their personnel boards or chair their annual galas. Everyone wanted to know their secret formula. The answer is simple: people and passion.
Your annual gala is not just a fundraiser, it is a FUN-raiser. When working with Platinum Charity Auctioneering and Consulting, we start planning weeks, months, and even up to a year prior to your big event. The goal is to make your event profitable AND memorable!
We start by meeting with your committee, helping guide them through the details, from themes and auction item procurement to additional revenue boosters and more. It is our goal to ensure your special night is as much about thanking your donors for their support all year, as it is raising money to guarantee the continued success of your cause.
If you’re looking to raise more money for your nonprofit (and, aren’t we all?), a professional auctioneer can help. Imagine what your nonprofit could do with tens of thousands of dollars more every year. A benefit auctioneer knows just how to accomplish that goal before and during your event.
A professional Benefit Auction Specialist will begin their work the minute a consultation begins. They do this in a few ways:
These are just a few of the ideas benefit auctioneers bring to the table before your event.
During your event, the auctioneer knows how to make the best impression on your attendees and get the most money out of the room.
Professional Benefit Auction Specialists spend a lot of time educating themselves through the National Auctioneers Association. They collaborate with an extensive network of other fundraising professionals, constantly improving their approach. These professionals will bring ideas to the table you’ve never heard before. Auctioneers’ techniques, knowledge, education, network, and drive will help you raise more money for your nonprofit.
