The word on the street about Dean, My Benefit Auctioneer...
Testimonials from some of Dean's clients.
“Without Dean our auction would have been a bust. His ideas made us so much more money than we ever thought we could make. Plus, his humor, energy and professionalism gave my Board the confidence he was worth every penny! We’ll book him again for our 2013 Bunkhouse Bash.”
– Melissa Connor, Executive Director, Atlanta Hospital Hospitality House
Happy guests at the 2012 Drop Dead Gorgeous Charity event.
Dean Crownover is the best performing auctioneer that I have experienced at any fundraiser. He arrived at my event early, dressed completely appropriate in a white tuxedo, went above and beyond his responsibilities to assist in anyway during the set up of the event and was great in his delivery of the live auction instructions to the volunteers. From the start of the live auction to the end, Dean was motivating, capturing and never loss the attention of the 200+ people sitting in the audience. His wonderful humor helped create an exciting environment for each and every item that was auctioned off – we raised more money than ever before and I contribute a lot of our accomplishment to Dean.
– Anita Leopold, Drop Dead Gorgeous Organization
“We’d never had an auctioneer but we are so glad that we decided to give Dean a try! He brought so much energy and excitement to our group and we were able to raise double what we did the year before. He did such a good job of getting everyone involved with the Heads and Tails game and created a lot of positive energy during the live auction. Our group loved it and is still talking about how much fun they had!”
– Ashley Sigmon, Medshare and Triage Consulting

Secondly, he will make sure that the auction will be run with a professional and entertaining approach. Most importantly, Dean will make sure that your audience has fun!”

His ideas for live auction and performance onstage created a 60% increase over our goal and represented literally half of the total dollars we raised.
