Event AuctioneerDavid Harper is a world record event auctioneer. He once sold Sir Alex Ferguson for £170,000 and he'll make your cause a lot of money! Employing a professional auctioneer, who can entertain and encourage the audience, as well as tease the prices beyond everyone's expectation is worth far more than any fee charged...it's money well spent!

A piece of David Harpers art can also be included in the auction. These artworks often raise more money than his auctioneering fee
