If you are looking for a professional and experienced charity auctioneer that will bring something exciting and different to your auction event; is easy and fun to work with; dynamite on stage; and serious about raising money for your organization; look no further.
Owned and managed by husband and wife team Jason and Tarryn Troutman, Auction Horizon is able to offer a wealth of fundraising knowledge and auction experience that can only be of benefit to your organization, and might just be the difference between a "nice" event and one that has your guests excited to give as much money as possible towards your cause.
With 15 years of auctioneering experience between them, Jason and Tarryn form a great auction duo. As a team they work the room, assisting each other in creating an exciting and giving atmosphere, and raising maximum bids. The Troutmans do not however merely rely on their natural auction ability and energetic personalities to bring in the money. They spend time before an auction getting to understand the client, the objectives of the organization and the auction items; the result being a great balance between FUNDraising and FUNraising.
In addition to their auctioneering skills, Jason and Tarryn offer a strategic fundraising consulting service that includes:
Live auction set up: item selection and order of auction, audio-visual aspects, sound
Fund-A Need / Ask / Pledge: Levels of giving, audio-visual production
Event Program: Strategic timing, speakers, speeches
Venue layout to maximize giving procedure
Execution of silent auction: Item selection, Donor Approach, Layout, Visual presentation
As a full service auction company, Auction Horizon can also provide auction travel packages; consignment auction items, in the form of collectibles and signed memorabilia; and cellphone bidding technology. These elements are only included as part of a strategy that will be beneficial to a specific event. Many times, clients look to these additional auction aspects as an easy fix to raise additional money but it is not the case for all (although it can be for some).
We have the experience, the knowledge and the personality. Why not give us a call and find out more about what we can bring to your auction event?
