Private School Fundraiser

Well, Mike, you were a big hit! Thank you very much for doing such a great job with the live auction at An Affair of the Heart. It was obvious that you had taken the time to understand our cause. I have had numerous comments on that. The scholarship sale was $95,000 - a full $20,000 more than last year and the $100 sale for a student outing brought $4,600 - almost twice what it was last year. The total from the live auction was $146,700. We are so pleased.

I will contact you when we have a date and location for next year. Please tell your staff members how impressed we were by their professionalism. A very successful event!

TACA raises money for the perfoaming arts, and in 2004, TACA raised the most money it has ever raised with its live auction. The items were not materially different from those offered in 2003. The difference was that Mike Jones conducted the auction.

I will hire Mike Jones to be the auctioneer for every event I serve as chairman!

St. Mark's School of Texas

If my memory serves me correctly, the first thing I said to you when we met was, "I think I should warn you before we begin, I really don't like auctioneers!" Well Mike, I just hadn't met you and your team yet! On behalf of everyone at St. Mark's, thank you for your professionalism, enthusiasm and tenacity.

- Alice Court, Auction Chairperson

Ben E. Keith Foods, Dallas, TX

Mike Jones has conducted an annual auction for our company for many years. In addition to possessing the "Boy Scout" type qualities of honesty, dependability, responsibility, etc., Mike also has a wonderful sense of humor. He keeps the auction moving at a lively pace, without rushing through.

I would recommend Mike Jones Auction Group, without reservaton, for any type of auction.
