Jamie McDonald, Orleans Chamber of Commerce
Nancy Cole CMP, Cardinal Path Training Academy
"On May 25, 2012, the Orléans Chamber of Commerce held its 22nd Annual Golf Tournament. During our dinner, we held a live auction in which Mr. Ryan E. Watson, of Raising the Bid, was our auctioneer. His expertise, enthusiasm and charisma ensured that the group was thoroughly engaged and motivated to participate in the auction, outbidding each other while having a fantastic time! This was our Chamber’s most successful golf tournament, and we fully believe that Ryan played an integral role in this success! On behalf of the Orléans Chamber of Commerce, we highly recommend Ryan’s services and believe his talents will ensure that your Live Auction is both entertaining and profitable... by Raising the Bid to its highest potential!"

I know first-hand how important the work of the Ottawa Humane Society is in our community. Each year, the OHS rescues and cares for more than 11,000 neglected, abused, stray and homeless animals.
