Charity/Benefit Auctioneer Service


With the increasing popularity of Charity/Benefit Auctions as a tool for fundraising, many charity’s have weighed the use of “Celebrity Auctioneers” versus Professional Auctioneers.  While the right Celebrity can enhance the excitement of an event, only Professional Auctioneers have the experience, knowledge and posses the abilities to extract the highest value for auction items.  And, we add some excitement too!!!  Whether it is the excitement of the auction chant or the ability to develop competitive bidding, the professional auctioneer will consistently deliver results superior to nonprofessional/entertainer auctioneers for charity or benefit events.  Whether it is a large auction in an opulent setting, or a church or school auction, we would be happy to provide you with the opportunity to get the most out of your donated items.

Auctioneer Fees:  Salvadore Auctions & Appraisals, Inc does not charge a fee for auctioneer services. It is our corporate philosophy that we should all help those that need assistance.  We believe that giving back to the community is an important service. In lieu of direct compensation to Salvadore Auctions, we request a donation be made to the Tomorrow Fund.  The Tomorrow fund provides financial support for families with children requiring treatment for cancer. The Tomorrow Fund is a vital and critical support feature for parents and families who are caring for a child with cancer providing parking fees, per Diem food and hotel costs, mortgage assistance and other financial assistance to qualifying families.  The level of donation is at the discretion of the organizer.  Your donation will help achieve support for families during a difficult emotional and financially trying time.
