Our fundraising auction clients love the ways we help make their events more successful, and they are more than willing to share their experiences. Below are testimonials from some of our current clients. Please contact us if you are interested in talking directly with a reference who is relevant to your event.

“David and Colleen have been with us from the beginning of Wine for the Spirit. Their efforts have helped change the role of philanthropy throughout Northern Indiana.”
Theresa Wagler, Founder, Wine for The Spirit Board Member, Erin’s House for Grieving Children

“Wine for Wildlife has been an overwhelming success for the Columbus Zoo, raising over a half million dollars for wildlife conservation since its inception. Without Reynolds & Buckley, their amazing talents and organizational abilities, none of this would have been possible.”
William A. Goldman, Esq., Zoo Board Member & Event Founder ~ on David Reynolds

“David brings intelligence, insight, and extraordinary enthusiasm to the wine auction arena as well as a true understanding of how to be most economically efficient so that the charity might reach its ultimate goal.”
Dick Grace, Grace Family Vineyards

“I was so impressed with the expertise and energy that David brought to the proceedings, which by the way were very successful, in large part due to his substantive role.”
Archie McClaren, Central Coast Wine Classic

“It was a fantastic evening, I can’t tell you the number of emails and texts I received about what a great auction it was. We made a lot of changes this year and people really enjoyed having less silent, more time to socialize and of course a shorter live auction. When I looked at my watch, I was stunned to see that it was 9:35 and we were done for the evening. Absolutely stunned. Thank you so much for your help, your advice and support and your encouragement. I must preface this next part by saying that we didn’t do a fund a need last year (don’t want your head to get too big!) but I want you to know that the live auction had an increase of 70% over last year. SEVENTY PERCENT!!!!!!!!!! That is fantastic and everyone is beyond thrilled. Thank you, thank you!”
Jeffrey Neve, Auction Chair 2013, Parkmead Education Resources Council (PERC)

“Your suggestions are wonderful and we all truly appreciate the time you take in making sure we are set up for a successful event. I think back to the first year we hired you and you urging us to move to a seated dinner which has made such an incredible difference in the way our event is perceived, and our ability to raise money for our cause.  Your dedication comes across in all that you do with us!”
Andrea Callaway, Buena Vista Auxiliary Chairman
