Our clients have the real story. See what they have to say!

"THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Thank you so much for everything last night. The whole YMCA fundraising team is so thrilled by the success of the event and the role 501 plays in making that happen. Such a joy to work with you! Please share my thanks with your whole team."
- Molly Heffernan, Director of Special Events, YMCA of Greater New York
"I want to thank you for your help with Fright Night. The auction went so smoothly; many guests commented on how easy it was to bid, and we surpassed our goal. Your assistance was invaluable, and it was a pleasure working with you both."
- Pamela Goldsteen, Director of Special Events, MONTCLAIR ART MUSEUM
"Once again I want to thank you and your team so very much for all you did to help make our event a great success. It was a true pleasure working with you all. Please extend our thanks and appreciation to everyone on your team. We will certainly keep you at the front of our minds for future events and if you ever need a recommendation please do not hesitate to have prospective clients call me."
- Susanne Kuligowski, Chief Operating Officer, The Junior League of the City of New York
"From start to finish, our partnership with 501 gets a strong thumbs-up reviews. The move to embrace this phone-based-bidding technology turned out to be a blessing on every front, we increased our take home for the auction and we received considerable praise from attendees. Going this route allowed us to eliminate lines at what used to be clipboard-based bidding tables, greatly extend the actual time for bidding, immediately review extremely useful reports, and have a much more swift checkout experience. Moreover, the 501 team's customer-service skills were off-the-charts outstanding."
- Lee Cooke, Executive Director, USGBC South Florida Chapter
