"After spending close to 15 years as a play-by-play announcer with the Sacramento Kings and UC Davis Football, I found that auctioneering has a lot of the same elements. The flow and the energy of the crowd is indescribable when you get the opportunity to help companies and schools raise money.
Having a professional auctioneer makes a BIG difference in the success of your evening. Let me be that auctioneer."

What People Say
Triump Cancer Foundation
We hired Steve Buzzard for our first ever virtual fundraiser for our nonprofit, Triumph Cancer Foundation. He was a great team member who was willing to take the time to collaborate with the entire production team to insure that our virtual event had good flow. He also spent the time to learn about our nonprofit and it felt like he had been with us for years, he was so well-versed at talking about Triumph during our broadcast. We were impressed with how well Steve was able to engage with our bidders - through a camera lens! He made the event exciting and entertaining, not an easy thing to do without an audience of guests. His sense of humor was welcome in such a strange new world of virtual fundraising that we are all dealing with as nonprofits. What we liked best about him was that he was genuine and it came through to our supporters. We recommend him whole heartedly for anyone looking for someone passionate and dedicated to helping your nonprofit raise money in the virtual world we are all living in right now.
As the co-chair of a recent elementary school Gatsby Gala themed Auction, Steve made the process of preparing for our live auction seamless and stress free. From our first communication he was easy to work with, willing to provide advice, and listen to our hopes for the evening. Steve brought confidence, enthusiasm, and a spark to our Auction, from announcements throughout the silent auction portion of event all the way through the lively and fast paced live auction. Steve has a relaxed and charismatic approach to his auctioneering that riles up the audience but at the same time focuses the audience on the item at hand. I could not recommend Steve Buzzard enough as an Auctioneer. He very much helped make our fundraising event the great success that it was! Thank you, Steve!
Shalom School Board / Benefit Committee
Steve Buzzard is the BEST Auctioneer, MC, and DJ. Steve is FABULOUS and WONDERFUL!! He knows his audience and how to entertain them during the Live Auction and Fund a Need. I was one of the organizers and auction spotters for the 2020 Shalom School Benefit Mad Hatter’s Ball. It was a pleasure to volunteer with Steve. His pricing is very reasonable and he is worth every penny. Steve is also a FANTASTIC DJ for adults, teens, and children for any celebration. I would highly recommend Steve Buzzard.
