Feel the crowd's anticipation with Ryan,

our Principal Auctioneer at Raising the Bid.

“Our organization is a grass roots one and our annual gala had never included a live auctioneer before.  Needless to say,   I was very hesitant as it was my decision to use one.   From the instant I had contact with Ryan, I felt comfortable. ... Ryan was a pro from the moment he walked on the gala stage.  His high energy, his sense of fun and his expertise facilitated us in raising so much more than we ever thought we could. ... Ryan, thank you so very much for your patience, energy, approachability and most of all, your creative ideas.  I truly look forward to working with you for many years to come!”
