Auctioneer / Host & Emcee

Jim’s goal as a fundraising auctioneer has always been to raise money & raise awareness by raising hands. When your guests are bidding, they are supporting you in many ways, and it is his job as your “front man” to build and secure the relationship you have with your supporters during the event. Together Jim and your organization can make an impact to insure their support remains after the event and throughout the years.

Jim conducted his first fundraising auction selling baked goods in a church basement for the ladies’ auxiliary. Twenty-seven years later he continues to provide a family friendly, entertaining & result driven auctioneer service for which he is proud to offer not only to his clients, but to the charities Jim personally supports each year. Jim has conducted fundraising auctions for hundreds of organizations, each one a memory he will always cherish. He meets amazing people at each event and their passion for their cause inspires him to help others.

When Jim is not an auctioneer or Emcee at fundraising events you can find him behind the microphone at Auction Depot Inc. which he co-founded in 2004. Jim tells us “I am blessed with amazing staff and a customer base that support me in many fundraising campaigns throughout the year. My philanthropic activities extend to many organizations from local schools and service groups to JDRF Canada and the Alberta Children’s Hospital”.
