Profits have Steadily Increased Every Year
I strongly recommend Parker Benefit Auctions to any non-profit organization considering hosting a fundraising event or interested in making your fundraiser more successful. We contracted with Michael Parker for the first time in 2010 to assist in planning our fifth annual fundraising event (the Barn Blast) in January 2011. Our first four Barn Blasts had grossed an average of $26,000 per year. With a small staff without expertise in fundraising events, we had done our best but had no idea how to make the Barn Blast more successful. For a year before Barn Blast 2011, Michael helped our Board and staff members focus on how to make money throughout the event while maintaining the flavor of the event. Sometimes the changes were painful as all change can be, but we trusted Michael’s fundraising expertise. The 2011 Barn Blast revenues increased by 64% from the previous year to over $47,000! Each year since 2011, we have contracted with Parker Benefit Auctions and our revenues have increased steadily. The 2014 Barn Blast was our most successful ever, with revenues of over $74,000 for young children in Anson County!

A Whole New Level . . . Guaranteed!
Would you like to take your organization’s fundraising to a whole new level? Teaming up with Parker Benefit Auctions will do just that… guaranteed! With Michael’s help and guidance, our organization, Coalition for Families in Lee County teamed up with the Lee County Partnership for Children and put on a cruise ship themed benefit auction gala. This was our first experience developing a large fundraising event. Michael’s guidance throughout the planning process was immensely helpful. He provides written materials that walk you through each step from developing committees to running the actual event. Something that really impressed us was his availability and willingness to meet with the various committees’ as many times as needed, to encourage and give directions. His fees are well below the time he gives to help you have successful results. One of Michaels endearing qualities is that he wants’ you to have a prosperous affair and he will do anything in his power to see that it happens. At the actual event no one has more fun than Michael. His upbeat style was the glue that kept the evening rolling along in an orderly but fun filled fashion. When you get Michael you most likely will get the entire Parker family as they are all trained and provide helpful guidance with quick problem solving advice to keep the evening on track. Everyone attending had nothing but high praise for this event and we raised more funds than we had even hoped for. After the event, Michael prepares an analysis report that is very helpful as we make plans for next year’s event. Michael’s approach is flexible and can work for any type of organization. What is the cost of using Michael Parker Benefit Auction? Priceless!!!!!

My husband and I have been to many auction fundraisers, but this one was different with the various games, which made the bidding process fun. We are telling our friends about it so they can make plans to join us next year!
