“At times, I find myself in disbelief at the “magical” moments he seems to create that elevate the giving in the room, and our guests truly enjoy their evening with Graham at the helm.”

-- Matt Brennan, Hillsboro (OR) Schools Foundation

"What distinguishes Graham from other auctioneers is that he excels at tailoring his vast experience to an event with authenticity and grace. He delivers a terrific party! His willingness to go the extra mile for a successful event is apparent from start to finish. It is truly a please working with Graham.

-- Tess Forte, Arboretum Foundation (Seattle, WA)

“I’ve been involved with non-profits and gala events for over 25 years and Graham is the best auctioneer I have ever worked with. He has an amazing ability to connect with his audience and make them feel like he is their old friend – and next thing you know, they’ve opened their wallets generously to him for the cause. Any organization that involved Graham can be assured the end result will be greater satisfaction and bottom-line, more money raised.”

- Charlie Frasier, Zach Theatre (Austin, TX) formerly with Portland (OR) Center Stage

Graham in Action“Graham not only excels at raising money at our gala, he also excels at representing the messaging, spirit and passion of our fight again ALS. He’s become a member of our family and I’ve been proud to recommend him to other ALS Chapters around the country who are also benefitting from his talents. He would be an asset to any fundraising event.”

- Aubrey McCauley, ALS Association of Oregon/SW Washington
