“Working with Freddie was one of the best decisions we made. His knowledge of the various virtual giving & streaming platforms set us up for success. His support & communication throughout allowed us to create a strategic plan that helped us produce a record-breaking fundraising event. Freddie is passionate & truly cares about his clients, from the pre-event production to his live camera persona, nothing changes, he is a class act that was a true partner from start to finish. We look forward to working with him in 2021!” – Danielle Roe, Danielle Roe Events

“Freddie is one of a kind. His energy, enthusiasm and passion for non-profits is unmatched and something that we are incredibly grateful for. We originally partnered with Freddie to host our annual in-person event that was supposed to take place in mid-March; unfortunately, due to COVID we had to cancel. Freddie immediately pivoted his entire operation to learn everything he could about virtual events to ensure that all of his clients could still fundraise without skipping a beat. We had never hosted a virtual event before and as a food bank we were already under staffed while adapting our own services to meet the communities needs. With his help, we were able to move seamlessly to a virtual platform and host one of our most successful events to date! With his help, we surpassed our $100,000 goal and we are thrilled. Once we confirm our event dates for next year, we will be sure to hire his services again. We wholeheartedly recommend Freddie to any nonprofit looking for innovative solutions to fundraising during the pandemic.” – Erika Fatula, Director of Fund Development, River City Food Bank

“We were a little nervous to host a virtual event but Freddie was with us every step of the way, from start to finish holding our hand all the way through it. He shared his knowledge, gave plenty of examples and he cheered us on. Freddie’s energy is infectious and his follow-up was greatly appreciated. Not only is Freddie a true professional – he is a kind and caring individual with a passion and understanding of the struggles faced by non-profits.” – Brenda Frachiseur, Executive Director, Big Brothers Big Sisters Northern Sierra

“Freddie and FSA Auctions have you covered! Freddie was hired to run our large, in-person gala, but had to quickly adjust to the wild year of events of 2020. I am scared to think what might have happened if we didn’t have Freddie on our team. He created a system to follow and guide us in this brand new world of virtual events where our largest funding source was on the line. Available to brainstorm at any moment, creative and brave with taking risks for better results, incredible energy, and humble always. Happy to say we survived the event and came out on top for Childhood cancer! I highly recommend Freddie and FSA!” – Catriona Arcularius, Director of Development, Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance

“It was a pleasure partnering with Freddie Silveria and FSA Auctions. Our current landscape necessitated that we quickly pivot from an in-person gala to a virtual event. There was so much uncertainty and trepidation as we launched into this unknown territory. Freddie confidently led us through the many steps necessary to help ensure a successful event. He was attentive, patient, and willing to learn along the way in an effort to help us create an enjoyable and inspiring experience for our guests. With a reduction in expenses due to the online platform, we posted our most successful CCHAT Uncorked event to date. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our sponsors and donors as they remained committed to supporting our mission of helping children with hearing loss learn to listen and talk. Freddie did an outstanding job of guiding us and enthusiastically sharing in our quest to make a difference in the lives of children and their families.” – Licia Green, Director of Development, CCHAT

“Freddie is simply amazing. After planning and working on a physical annual fundraiser for A Touch of Understanding that was to take place on March 26th ,2020, we were faced with a very tough decision…cancel the event, postpone it, reschedule the event or go Virtual. With Freddie’s guidance and encouragement our small team of staff and volunteers set out to create and produce one of the first Virtual Fundraisers in the Sacramento Region. And oh by the way…do this is 5 and a half weeks. It was a major learning curve for us and Freddie, but everything we needed started to fall into place and this amazing event, that took place on April 30th, 2020, was a huge success. This is due in large part to Freddie, his professionalism, commitment to excellence, energy, and expertise. Our Fund-A-Need segment increased by 300% over last year alone. Our Evening Of Insight Virtual Event was the most successful fundraiser ATOU has ever had. If you are considering changing your plans from a physical fundraiser to a virtual one…You will want someone on your team that can make it a HUGE success for your organization. Freddie is your guy. We have already booked Freddie for our EOI 2021 event next March. Thanks Freddie for making it all happen for ATOU and for the many children we serve each year.” – Roxanne Snyder, Chair, A Touch of Understanding

“Freddie is awesome! He made great effort to understand our work and why it is important. He found multiple ways to communicate that to our guests. With great enthusiasm and professionalism he raised more money that we thought possible. We are grateful and cannot wait to have him back next year.” – Cindy Skelton-Hodge, Founder & President, Windows To My Soul

“Freddie was an absolute asset to our gala planning team. He helped in the planning stage and was essential day of. His fundraising ideas were innovative and fun. Day of the event he was a huge help – stepping in wherever he could. The event was an awesome success thanks to his energy and passion! We couldn’t have done it without him! I would highly recommend FSA Auctions!!” – Charlotte Radmilovic, Co-Chair, Sacramento LGBT Center

“Freddie’s passion for auctioneering was evident the moment we began working with him. We had recommendations for several other auctioneers and decided to hire Freddie due to his enthusiasm and curiosity. Freddie visited each of the beneficiaries to understand our charity in depth, asked many questions, and helped come up with ideas and strategies to make our event both memorable and enjoyable. Lastly, he doesn’t nickel and dime percentages during the event, and he was incredibly generous with his time responding to texts, emails, and driving out to the Bay Area for meetings. Freddie was on fire at the event and was able to create a record breaking auction. We would recommend Freddie in a heart beat to anyone looking to raise money!” – Hannah Kim, Co-Chair, Children’s Health Guild Spring Gala

“Working with Freddie was a pleasure. He successfully guided our institution through the auction process, offering advice on auction item donations, setting minimum bids, and ensuring that we secured commitments before the opening bid. Freddie was super-prepared. He briefed all of our volunteers beforehand so that everyone was aware of their roles and responsibilities. He met attendees and took the pulse of the room, allowing us to determine the optimal start-time for the auction. He made the event fun for attendees, and encouraged participation with this light-hearted and engaging style. He even provided his own A/V equipment! The result was a phenomenal fundraising total that we would not have realized without Freddie’s hard work and dedication. If you are considering hosting an auction in support of your organization, I cannot recommend Freddie highly enough. Thank you!” – Rosita Lucas, Fund Development Director, Holy Names University

“Freddie is a consummate professional that was born to be an auctioneer. He understands that raising money through an auction is more than just showing up the night of the event. He does his preparation and consults the client throughout the planning process to help ensure that they meet (likely exceed) their fundraising goals. Freddie’s enthusiasm and passion shines through, and he is excellent at keeping the crowd engaged and motivated to keep their paddles in the air.” – Karlee Cemo-McIntosh, Woman of the Year, Leukemia Lymphoma Society

“New Day for Children supports American minor girls who’ve been rescued from sex trafficking and we rely completely on private funding. From the very beginning, Freddie was fully engaged and worked wonderfully, and artfully, to raise more money than we dreamed possible. He genuinely cared as much as we did about the outcome of our fundraiser! Freddie was well prepared too – he did his homework so that he understood the magnitude of the cause he was championing. He asked us great questions upfront and had excellent suggestions that made our event more profitable and meaningful. He was on time, if not early, for every meeting and on the day of our event. Freddie is an absolute professional in every way and we will most definitely use him again.” – Sharon Wood, Executive Director, New Day for Children
