Natick, MA — For the second straight year, the Riverbend School of Natick, Massachusetts, has booked Spark owner Andy Saks to serve as its live auctioneer for its annual fundraiser.
The Spring Gala will take place in May, 2018, at the Crowne Plaza Boston-Natick Hotel, in Natick, Massachusetts.
In his live auctioneer role, Saks will:
— advise Riverbend School on auction item order and pricing
— write a word-for-word script for each auction item and for a “paddle raise” (fund-the-need) segment
— create a matching, animated slide deck for each auction item and for the paddle raise
— emcee fundraising games like “heads or tails”
— make announcements and introduce guest speakers
Riverbend School is a dynamic learning community where students are excited to come to school each day. Here, children are inspired to take risks, reach new levels of achievement, and become confident, self-motivated learners for life.
Saks has served as live auctioneer for other organizations in southern New England, including the YMCA of New Canaan, CT, Newbury College, the Boston Jewish Film Festival, Community Rowing, Inc., and Boston Workmen’s Circle.
