Have Gavel Will Travel!

“I have watched the magic of Marci in front of a crowd. Her charisma and charm captivate a room like I have never seen! She is my #1 choice when someone calls looking for a referral. Marci makes any event a seamless production of fundraising and entertainment. Her personality and distinct voice sets her apart as a fundraising auctioneer.”

Rich Haas, President

“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. Marci’s natural sales ability carries over into her elegant and professional auctioneering skills. This was our most successful Gala ever!”

“I had the pleasure of watching Marci commandeer the stage at a recent auction, with her personal charm and graceful professionalism in full swing. Marci possesses a certain magnetism that grabs and holds an audience’s attention while she keenly reads the room, maximizing her client’s auction results in the process. She’s highly likeable, which is something that somehow makes people just want to open their wallets and give!”

Camille Benoit, Principal Velocity 3

“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 to 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 the willingness to work with our team make Marci a top contender in the Charity Auctioneering sector. Marci was heaven sent!”

Blyth Berg Brookman, Co-Committee Chair – St. Martin’s By-the-Lake Episcopal Church 

“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!”

Lindsay K. Anderson, Corporate Engagement Senior Manager – National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Upper Midwest Chapter

Marci was the Auctioneer at a fund-raiser where I had donated a house concert. She not only blew the roof off the gavel price I expected, but quadrupled the donation to four winning bidders and brought in the biggest total donation of the entire event. Highly recommended!”
