“Layne is the pinnacle of excellence as a charity Auctionista with flare! Highly energetic,  entertaining and a knowledgeable whirlwind who transformed our ho-hum silent and live auctions into the events they need to be to entertain AND draw out the dollars. No-one leaves the room without a hello or thank you and a lighter wallet.”
