Auction Packages & Fundraising Events Testimonials
Impact Auctions Testimonials for Silent and Live Auctions for Fundraising Events. We want to have a long lasting relationship with each organization year after year.
St Gabriel's Catholic School, (Charlotte, NC) Ron & Debbie and the entire crew at Impact Auctions were absolutely vital in helping us to not only reach but to surpass our fundraising goals! They are so much fun to work with, so prepared and so talented!! This is our second year using Impact Auctions at our fundraising event and with their guidance, we had an incredible night!! Looking forward to next year!!
It is with enthusiasm I recommend Ron and Debbie Hitzel of Impact Auctions for your next event. Post-event feedback from the Guys & Dolls co-chairs and attendees has been overwhelmingly positive in regard to Ron and Debbie. The event's volunteer leaders believe strongly that this year's audience at Guys & Dolls was more engaged throughout the event because of Ron and Debbie's energy and enthusiasm. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation looks forward to working with Ron and Debbie and Impact Auctions for years to come.
Ron and Debbie Hitzel are true professionals - exciting, entertaining, and great at what they do! But what really sets them apart from other auctioneers that I have seen (which is a lot!) is their ability to truly understand the event, the audience, and the right tone for the evening. Ron and Debbie were fantastic at our event - Fashion Breathes Life. We are still hearing from our attendees about what a great addition they were to our fund appeal, live and silent auction (it is amazing how carefully timed commentary can really pump up bidding on silent auction items!). They are masters of their art! Ben and Jill Pleune

Wow is all I have to say!!! I think we were witness to the perfect night. An amazing night working with a great team – thank you both!!!!! Just when I was thinking about walking away from this event – we get a CLEAR message both from Grace, our inspired speaker, and the money raised – that it’s still very important.

We won our trip in 2017 at a fundraising event and had an amazing trip to Capri and the Amalfi Coast through Impact Auctions in 2018. The travel agent is second to none and we will be using their services for other trips we decide to take in the future. Thank you for everything, Impact Auctions!!

DIAMOND RESORTS INTERNATIONAL® with the support of more than 70 sports and entertainment celebrities, successfully raised $503,000 in net proceeds to benefit the Walt Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital for Children (FHFC) at the Diamond Resorts Invitational Champion’s Gala and Auction at Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club in Celebration, Florida , on January 16, 2016. Impact Auctions helped raise $300,000 at the live auction.
Using Impact Auctions for our Signature Chefs Auction and Gala event in November of 2015 took it to another level. Ron and Debbie are truly vested in the mission work of non-profits. They were more than just auctioneers, they were truly a part of the leadership team that worked on the event. They get an A+ from me and I would recommend them highly.

Impact Auctions brought us more than just return on the dollar. The amount of tactical and strategic information they gave for planning and executing our non-profit event was priceless, things we never thought of doing before. Debbie and Ron are truly problem-solvers, professionals, and honestly want to help you be successful. Our committee worked with them over an eight-month period, and they never let us down.

2015 was our first year working with a truly professional full-service auctioneer. We did a full search and were so pleased with our decision to go with Impact Auctions! Not only did we raise MORE money but the live auction was more entertaining than in past years! Thank you!

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and you wife Debbie, for your part in this years Guys and Dolls charity event for Cystic Fibrosis, March 7th, 2015. As a father of a child with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), I’ve attended many events like this in Charlotte and Washington DC over the 23 years we’ve known our daughter Auburn, had CF, but none were as lively or productive. I feel this event was especially productive from an auction standpoint because of your professional style and the personalities of both you and your wife. I want to thank you both for your superb efforts in helping to raise more than $240K, a large part coming from your auctioning talent and your ability to get the crowd excited. Thank you and continued success.
I was happy to see the excitement Impact Auctions brought to the live auction of a fundraiser we recently performed. One of the things Auctions By Cellular (ABC) does to keep guests involved is mingle and encourage bidding throughout the silent auction. We know how challenging it can be sometimes to keep a crowd engaged. We've witnessed many auctioneers that just don't know how to work the room, and as a result, the charity loses potential funds for their cause or organization. The Impact Auctions team brought charisma and charm and definitely kept the audience's interest which resulted in more profit for the organization. It was a complete pleasure working with this professional company.

Debbie and Ron Hitzel from Impact Auctions were the auctioneers for the Palisades Episcopal School’s recent Gala & Auction. They were a pleasure to work with -- professional, personable and knowledgeable about hosting non-profit fundraising events. Ron and Debbie provided wonderful pre-event suggestions to help enhance the evening, and arrived early to get to know our guests so they could maximize the funds raised from the live auction. They also helped increase the bids on a number of our silent auction items, as well as raise the most we have ever raised from a fund-the-need live ask. Our 2014 Gala & Auction was our most successful event to date, and we appreciate Impact Auctions for helping make this possible.
