Good Thing, You Found Redbeard!
Matt Osterwicken @ AmeriBank
“We hired Redbeard’s Auction Company for our Breast Cancer Benefit. I never would have imagined that Brent would sell one bra/item for $375. The money we made with him as our live auctioneer was 26 times what we made the year before with silent bidding.”
Katrina Khouri @ Whaley’s Children Center
“Brent is always my first choice for charity auctions because he consistently keeps the audience attentive & engaged. He’s funny & charming which helps him help us earn great returns on live auction items. Overall, he’s a great auctioneer, entertainer, & fundraiser.”

Redbeard follows that principle of temperance today along with principles of honesty, integrity, perseverance, and faith.
