Auctions With Flair


Auctions With Flair surpassed my dreams for a glamorous, successful silent auction for our annual gala. They not only created a gorgeous and perfectly themed environment, but did all the behind the scenes work, providing us with frequent updates, tracking donors, storing auction items, creating bid sheets, doing all the pre-and-post-event follow-up and providing contact information for thank you letters. They also skillfully grouped items to maximize bid value. We will definitely use their services in the future.

I had the privilege of working with Lauri and Yolanda of Auctions With Flair for my first ever silent auction. I didn’t know what I was doing, but they helped me through everything. They collected and organized the items, helped with the bid sheets and invoicing, and decorated and displayed all the items in such a gorgeous manner. They made me look good! Everyone congratulated me on the beauty and success of the silent auction, but I could not take the credit. It was Auction With Flair!! They went above and beyond all while doing an amazing job. We would hire them again for our future silent auction needs.

If it wasn’t for Auctions with Flair, the OCHCC Golf Tournament would have not been as successful as it was! The presentation of raffle and silent auction prizes was awesome!! We definitely will be using these ladies next year and for other chamber events. Thank You Lauri and Yolanda for all your hard work and dedication!!!

“Auctions With Flair” was a huge part of the success of our first West Coast event this past July aboard the Battleship Iowa in San Pedro. Our auction well exceeded our expectations and I have Yolanda and Lauri to thank!!

Having never organized a silent auction before, I had no idea the amount of planning and preparation that is required to make a silent auction a success. Working with Auctions With Flair was the easiest decision in the event planning process. They were able to help solidify donations, track and store items as they came in, and put them together beautifully for our event. The presentation was outstanding!! I would highly recommend Auctions With Flair to anyone considering having a silent auction at their next event.

Our goal at Elwyn CA was to make our 16th Annual Bowlathon “40th Anniversary special” and we exceeded our expectations, some declaring it was the best yet!! Auctions With Flair was a contributing factor with event tips and contributions to efficiency. Their focus to providing a visually delightful auction area (and our entrance) gave staff time to provide additional enhancements that all led to one grand community party of 400+ people having fun & making friends!!!

In November 2013 Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire launched its Women’s Circle of Wishes first event “This Old Bag: The Power of the Purse. We were on a short timeline to plan this high tea with a silent auction of vintage and high end bags as the focus, so we engaged the services of Auctions With Flair. This turned out to be one of the best decisions the group made in planning this event! AWF went above and beyond by assisting in the research on the bags value, collecting donations forms and corresponded with donors as needed.

AWF constructed some of the most beautiful and unique displays and stories about our auction items. Attendees at the event continued to comment on how creative and beautiful these bags were displayed. Auctions with Flair certainly went above our expectations! You can’t go wrong working with this fun, professional and passionate ladies!

It was my joy and pleasure to work with Yolanda and Lauri (Auctions With Flair) for six years as they created stunning silent auction events that always left guests impressed! Creative yet budget conscious, they make a great team. I highly recommend them, and Auctions With Flair, if you want your event to be one that is remembered long after the day is over.
