Listening carefully to the needs of your organization and offering support throughout execution of the event, I provide detailed plans for a successful moneymaking charity auction. My value lies in community connections, experience and stage presence. I keep it moving while graciously inviting the audience to dig deep.
I put the Fun in Fundraising. Have Gavel will Travel!
We hired Marci for our largest annual fund-raiser and her dedication to working with our committee was impressively patient and steadfast for months prior to the event. She used her connections from the community to help raise our numbers from the previous year. The National MS Society, Upper Midwest Chapter will forever be grateful for Marci’s Auctioneering expertise in this year’s “On the Move” Luncheon!
Our choice to make a switch from our regular auctioneer to Marci paid off in spades! An astounding 82% increase can be attributed to Marci’s persistence, grace and ability to connect with our audience. Her smart sense of how to price the items and the order in which to introduce them made the outcome of our 125th-year Anniversary event a complete success. Her energy and suggestions leading up to the event, and her willingness to work with our team make Marci a top contender in the Charity Auctioneering sector.
Response from Marci Mannis Auctions:
It was an honor to be chosen as your Auctioneer, it was a spectacular event!
I have watched the magic of Marci in front of an auction crowd. Her charisma and charm captivate a room like I have never seen! She is my # 1
choice when someone calls looking for a charity / fund raising auctioneer / Emcee. Marci makes any event a seamless production of fund raising and entertainment.
Her personality and distinct voice sets her apart as a certified fund raising auctioneer.

Marci has been such a pleasure to work with thus far. We have a fundraiser event next week that she will be auctioneering, and in preparation, she's not only help put together a great live auction program, she's secured a number of auction items! Just goes to show the dedication and commitment Marci brings to the table. She truly is a cut above!
I have known and worked with Marci for well over a decade. She is truly at the top of her game when it comes to stage presence, bringing in money and interacting with the crowd. I would recommend Marci for any charity event looking to raise their numbers from the previous years. She has a unique style and her smile and command of a room is the ticket to her ability to bring in the big bucks!
Marci lit up the room with her smile, her voice and her presence. She was able to elicit more money out of the patrons with her wit and playful cajoling. Wonderful job!
I would highly recommend Marci Mannis at your next live auction event! She is charming, full of energy and knows how to engage the crowd with her past experience in TV and Radio. Marci¹s natural sales ability carries over into her elegant & professional auctioneering skills. This was our most successful Gala ever!

“Marci is a top sales performer. From the moment she joined my staff she lit every sales goal on fire, far exceeding expectations and accepting no less the entire time we worked together. She has an innate ability to build trust with clients and forge long lasting relationships. Marci has taken her ability to build relationships and stay focused on goals to be successful in every endeavor she pursues. She is a quick study and adaptable to changing situations. Over the years I've witnessed Marci bring leadership characteristics of excellence - honesty, integrity, vision, drive, commitment and passion to leading her own company, she built from the ground up, and be wildly successful. Given the opportunity, I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again!”
