Two years in a row I’ve been thrilled to work the Live Auction and Fund The Mission moment for the Tennessee Chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. Success on this event does not begin the night of, as I have worked with the team in planning the most effective run of show for the night, and have even joined their board meetings to help ignite excitement about the gala each year.

This organization made the big step from a “party” to a “fundraiser” with their most recent event being the first ever with a full sit down dinner. We were all thrilled with the results, and I can’t wait to team up with them again!

“Tom was the emcee and auctioneer at our annual fundraising event in the fall 2022. He worked with our volunteer leadership to tighten up the script, help with program flow and package our live auction items. He was professional, thoughtful and insightful throughout the process. Night of our event he brought lots of energy and enthusiasm. Our crowd is notoriously difficult to grab attention due to being primarily a standing event and Tom navigated it masterfully. Not only can he pump up a crowd, but he can deliver where it matters- he was able to help us raise the most we ever have during our fund the mission! I cannot wait to work with him on our event this year!” – Michelle Chianese, Senior Executive Director, Crohn’s & Colitis Tennessee
