Neil, Trisha and everyone at Saffer and Company… We could never thank them enough for everything they do for SOS Children’s Villages – Florida. They are THE BEST! Not only are they the best in what they do, but are so supportive, dedicated, professional, genuine and of course… seriously entertaining! We certainly knew having them involved in our most recent event would bring fun and value, but after post-event review… we just could not have done it without them! Thank you for always bringing your talent and heart to SOS Florida and we can’t wait to have you at our next event!!!

Thank you for such a terrific job at the Rain Barrel Ball. I enjoyed your performance (and it really was an entertaining performance which I think made the auction itself the main entertainment of the night). I also enjoyed the opportunity to meet with you.

Dear Neil & Trisha,
What another outstanding evening for Saint Joe’s! The auction was a resounding success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves again this year.
We attribute the success of the last two years to you. It was truly a pleasure working with you both and I hope that before my children graduate from St. Joe’s I will Chair one more auction (with you both at my side!).
With Fondest Regards,

“I’ve had opportunity to work directly with Neil at numerous high end Charity Gala auctions. Anyone who tells you that “it doesn’t matter who runs the auction” or that “any local celebrity can do it” is out of their mind.
Neil has been the difference between having a good night and having a fantastic night and truly is worth his weight in gold. Great audience rapport, he becomes a true believer in your cause and more importantly, gets his audiences to open those wallets. I look forward to future opportunities to work with Neil and Trish and highly recommend you call him for your next event.
