Client Testimonials

Here are what some of our clients had to say:

Mike Matheny Approved!

“After more than 10 years of running our foundation fundraiser, we thought we had covered all of our bases. Little did we know the difference a professional auctioneer could make. I have been to some of the biggest fund raisers in our area, and I have never seen someone as talented and heart connecting, as Adam Jokisch. Adam had the crowd laughing, crying, and most importantly, spending their hard earned dollars on our very worthy cause. Adam has not only helped us raise more dollars, he has brought a professionalism, and an entertainment value beyond any expectations.”

“We have been lucky enough to have Adam at our auction the last 7 years and he never disappoints.   He is professional, talented and learns the crowd within minutes. This allows him to maximize every bid and opportunity for the best possible outcome.  He is the only auctioneer for us”.

“Thank you for your contributions to the “It’s in the Cards” Dinner Gala on April 29th.

The Gala was a big success, raising close to $500,000 for the Thompson Foundation for Autism. And more good news – last week the State of Missouri passed legislation mandating group insurance policies to cover autism therapy.

Your valuable support is deeply appreciated by all of us with the Thompson Foundation and families with autism.”

How do I fund the words to convey our deep appreciation to your for your investment in our auction fundraiser for his year?? Your sense of humor and your excellence in all you do makes a difference in what takes place during that night.

Because of this night, we will be able to replace our broken computers, provide scholarship money and many other needed items for our classrooms. I am deeply thankful that you were willing to support our school in such a very critical way.
