New Canaan, CT — The YMCA of New Canaan, Connecticut, has booked Spark owner Andy Saks as its live auctioneer for its upcoming fundraiser.
Titled “A Night in Saint Barths,” the fundraiser will take place in April, 2017, at Waveny House, inside Waveny Park in New Canaan, Connecticut.
In his live auctioneer role, Saks will:
— advise the YMCA on auction item order and pricing
— write a word-for-word script for each auction item plus a “paddle raise” (fund-the-need) segment
— create a matching slide deck for all auctioneer segments
— create a looping slideshow of YMCA photos and auction items, to run during dinner
The event is being produced by Hollywood Pop, a full-service event and party planning company that designs and produces private parties and corporate events, including benefits, fundraisers, and concerts.
