Testimonials

Shaun O’Hara, SB 42 Champion & founder of The Shaun O'Hara Foundation

“You gotta have somebody that can command a room, can add a little humor to it… certainly Pat brings a lot of energy, but I just love the humor he brings and how much fun is had at the event.”

Bill Dessoffy, National Kidney Foundation

“He makes it look like he’s part of the organization, which is so key.”

Bridget Murphy, Visiting Nurse Association Health Group

He was part of our team every step of the way. He was funny, he was patient, he put in all the extra time and made sure our event moved quickly, was exciting, was interesting and I give him a lot of credit for being a big part of that. I highly recommend him to any organization out there!

Katie Hobday, American Heart Association

Pat was our Emcee and Auctioneer for our NJ Heart Ball virtual auction and I can not recommend him enough! He drove our donors to increase our bids on our live auction, sold our mission to encourage our Open Your Heart Appeal. He was fun and entertaining throughout the event. I cannot say enough good things about Pat!

Lisa Mandel, Tisch MS Research Center of New York

Our Paddle Raise is really important part of our fundraising. We like to get everyone in the room involved. Pat does a great job of reading the room and really connecting with people as they raise their paddle and thanking them personally and directly."

Laura Powers, The Perimeter School

I have received nothing but praise and compliments about Pat as our Auctioneer. He really helped raise our fundraising and entertainment bar! It's my pleasure to give my highest compliments and recommendation of him!

Jennifer Finkelstein, Founder, 5 Under 40 Foundation

Words don’t describe how instrumental Pat Tully was in enabling us to exceed our gala’s fundraising goals! He was the consummate professional - meeting with our team twice to guide us through auction categories, brought innovative ideas and helped us balance our silent and live auctions seamlessly. He also helped streamline our run of show to ensure the audience’s maximum participation! He wove around tables scaling the ballroom to ensure we didn’t miss any bids. To say, I highly recommend him is the understatement of the year. We will never make the mistake of not having this charismatic, engaging and electrifying auctioneer at our program.
