Availability for Benefit & Fundraising Auctions

To best utilize consulting services, auctions should be booked 6-12 months in advance. 

Saturdays from
September - November and
February - May are the most popular dates and fill up the fastest. 

Weeknights are becoming more and more popular because more venues are available and there is less competition for donors to attend on weeknights. In 2016, some of my most successful events were hosted on Monday nights!

Please message me with your date and details about your event and I will get back as soon as possible with my availability.

Sarah's flat rate of $2500* includes:

Pre-Event Consulting

After a contract is signed, you will meet or have a call scheduled with Sarah to get an overview of your event and answer any questions and make a plan for what needs to be done moving forward. There is another meeting or call 1-4 weeks before the event to fine-tune auction items,
Fund-A-Need details and go over event logistics. Sarah is also available via phone and email as needed throughout the event planning process.

Live Auction

Your crowd will be engaged and entertained from the time Sarah takes the stage. She is known for her down-to-earth elegance and quick-witted sense of humor. She will read your crowd and find the perfect balance of humor and mission-focused passion that will get their hands in the air, maximizing auction revenue.


The Fund-A-Need which is also known as a Special Appeal, Ask, Cash Auction, Call to Action, among many other names, is an opportunity to give your guests a  meaningful opportunity to make a difference through a financial contribution to your organization. During consulting, Sarah will walk you through how to set this up for success and then she will conduct the Fund-A-Need ask herself the night of your event. 

*Any events outside of Minnesota will also include an additional fee of $1000 to cover travel and any applicable state auction licensing fees

I can’t remember seeing an auction where every item went above published value, some well in excess of published value.
