Damon Castico is passionate about assisting non-profits in fund-raising, and brings a wealth of knowledge and contacts that will help to achieve your goals.
It is Damon’s belief that, "if you don't know who you are raising the money for and how it will be spent you aren't going to be very compelling."
The question is simple…would you like to MAXIMIZE your gala fundraiser, while leaving your guests HAPPY and EXCITED?
Over the past 10 years Chad has helped raise millions of dollars for local Bay Area schools and non-profits. His interest in auctioneering began many years ago, when he did a simple “Pie Auction” for his school, and raised much more than expected! As a full-time principal for the past 21 years, not only did he discover that he enjoyed auctioneering, but the guests loved his spirit, and he found that he was often raising double what was expected from previous years’ fundraisers. Chad is able to connect with his audience with a spirit and passion and sense of FUN that is quite unique!
"You've got the wrong guy."
That was Steve Haworth's response when asked to play the role of auctioneer for his daughter's school fundraiser.
Not only did the car dealership owner from Berkeley have no idea how to be an auctioneer, the idea of speaking in front of hundreds of people terrified him. Still, it was his wife and her friend who had organized the event, and Steve felt he couldn't say "no." Good thing he didn't.
Fourteen years later and Steve is a sought-after auctioneer for many charity events, raising tens of millions of dollars a year.

MC / Host / Auctioneer - Legendary radio and TV personality
For thirty five years, the Bay Area woke to the voice and on-air antics of "Don Bleu in the Morning”. If you haven’t received a “Bleuper call”, your neighbor or spouse has.
On air, Don has flown with the Blue Angels, been dunked in a human Irish stew, officiated a wedding in a blimp over the Golden Gate bridge, and started a campfire in front of the Transamerica building, to bring attention to the plight of Girl Scouts against big business.
He was twice named National Radio Personality of the year, and is in the Radio Hall of Fame.
If you weren’t listening to Don Bleu on the radio, you were watching him on TV host ‘The Gong Show” or “The Know Zone” or “Evening Magazine”. A four time Emmy award winner, Don is trying to break the stereotype of “a face for radio".
