Born in England and raised in both England and Greece, I have traveled extensively in third-world countries and seen first-hand how many people struggle to survive. This shaped my views on what is important in life, and giving back to those in need is part of my personal philosophy. My passion to help people in need led me to my profession of psychotherapist and divorce mediator, in which I have been actively engaged for 30 years.

 

I have also been actively involved with fund-raising for nonprofits for many years. For example, in 2006, for Free a Child, an anti-sex trafficking organization, I chaired an event during which we raised well over $80,000.

 

In November of 2018, I was the auctioneer for an event by BoldeReach which raised $180,000 for an orphanage and school in Haiti. In 2008, my auction with BoldeReach raised over $100,000 to benefit women in dire political situations around the world.

 

“Your next event can earn more with my help!” — Helena Unger

 

I completed auctioneer training at the Missouri Auction School in St. Louis, known as the Harvard for auctioneers.

 

I believe strongly in giving back to my community, and auctioneering allows me to combine my outgoing personality with my passion for worthy causes. I work solely with nonprofit organizations and schools that need help raising funds. It's my goal to raise the most money possible while providing a great evening of entertainment that people will remember. I can work both with organizations experienced in conducting fund raising events as well as organizations considering their initial fundraiser.

 

I can conduct your auction and advise you on specific elements of preparation for your event such as:

  • Organizing an auction

  • Choosing the right venue

  • Identifying the best sources of donations

  • Deciding which items belong in the silent auction and which in the live auction

  • Displaying the auction items

  • Creating a productive flow for the event

  • Prompt and efficient checkout procedures

My personal style combines the exuberance of my Greek heritage with the sophistication of my British education. Truly, few can resist the lure of a British accent, especially when they're being encouraged to contribute to a nonprofit they believe in.
