Ian’s Friends Foundation


I want to thank you for your ongoing support of Ian’s Friends Foundation! It was such an honor to have you join us Saturday night. I am ecstatic to report that our event raised over $900,000 for pediatric brain tumor research! It is because of YOU that we are able to make a difference.  On behalf of all of the children battling brain tumors, thank you for your time! Your support is critical in sponsoring the research so desperately needed to find a cure for pediatric brain tumors.

We hope to work with you again in the future. With gratitude,


- Kathy OrtstadtExecutive Director Ian’s Friends Foundation


Just wanted to tell you how impressed Pamela and I were with your work at the JFS Annual Dinner.  You really were responsible for making the auctions a financial success … and at the same time, made it fun for the participants & onlookers. 

Any way … didn’t want to let the weekend pass w/o letting you know you really helped make the evening a success.  I estimated you took in almost $200,000 during the Live Auction … and I know there was a good deal of activity on the timed auction items, as well.  See you soon ! ~ bob

After each one of our annual auctions, we come back to  Unity School and rave about the ever fantastic auctioneer,  Neil Saffer. Year after year you bring fun and excitement to the night!  Your sense of humor and joy of raising money for our school ensures that each one of our auction events surpasses the last in both profitability and entertainment.  Not only do you amuse our donors but you cajole them into happily opening wide their wallets to support our mission. Please don’t ever give up your auction career because we would be hard pressed to replace your amazing gift for fund raising on the auction podium. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for our school. “
