Dear Valued Clients:
Thank you for nearly 50 years of serving your benefit auctions. I have enjoyed working with each of you to strengthen the bond between your organization and its constituency. I am very proud of the fact that together we have raised nearly one billion dollars for your charities. But far more important than the nearly $1,000,000,000 is the impact that those funds had on the thousands of people served by your organizations. That impact can not be overstated. Lives were changed. Lives were saved. I am eternally grateful to you for my part in that great work.
My firm has provided professional services including benefit auction planning support and auctioneering services. In addition, my firm has provided to your benefit auctions revenue enhancing trips to many locations, silent auction bid forms, live auction invoices, and bid cards.
The time has come, however, for me to step back from the active pursuit of benefit auction clients. This is an announcement that I have entered limited retirement. I will still be doing a few benefit auctions that are on the books and for those nonprofit organizations that tell me they simply can not hold their benefit auctions without my participation.
Because I have conducted benefit auctions from Washington DC to Hawaii I have developed relationships with many benefit auctioneers across the nation. If I can not serve your benefit auction, I will be happy to give you the name of a benefit auctioneer or two in your area who can help you.
Thank you again for the privilege of serving you and your nonprofit organization.
With enormous appreciation for all your charities do for the people they serve,

Kip Toner
