Ever wonder why you do auctions at your events? Do they generate enough revenue for the hassle? Learn all the secrets of success with fundraising auctions from veteran fundraiser and president of Pacific Auction Company, Steven Godfryd. PAC supports well over 200 charity auctions per year and Steven is one of the most sought after auctioneers in California. 

Are auctions right for your organization? Megan Morrow of Megavents Productions will explain how to evaluate the pros and cons of doing auctions, choosing auctions versus raffles, and how to be strategic with auctions as part of an overall fundraising plan. 



Presented by Steven Godfryd and Megan Morrow



Steven Godfryd - Steven founded the Pacific Auction Company in 2003 and serves as the company president. He formerly spent 15 years as a professional non-profit fundraiser, and the combination of being both an auctioneer and a fundraiser makes him a powerful force in encouraging people to spend generously at fundraising events. He personally generates millions of dollars for charitable organizations annually, and has been recognized by industry groups for his outstanding work.


Megan Morrow - Megan is the founder of Megavents Productions, a  full service experiential marketing agency providing public relations, marketing, event planning and production, and digital media services. She has extensive experience producing fundraising events and auctions for many California non-profits.
