Thank you again for serving as the Master of Ceremonies at the Overlake Hospital Medical Center Bandage Ball gala – a highly successful evening of inspiration as we celebrated “Fifty Years of Healing” with commitments of over $1,000,000! Thank-you!

We were especially appreciative of the way throughout the evening, that you demonstrated a confident command of your responsibilities as themaster of ceremonies and auctioneer. In addition, during our pre-event meetings, you provided insightful and appropriate advice on event timing and scripting and were always flexible with our special requests.

In the midst of our “mid-event crisis,” you quickly and graciously stepped-up and took command. The depth or your experience and your professionalism was greatly appreciated in the way in which you smoothly adjusted the schedule and were quick on your feet to ensure the great success that we knew was possible for our event.

As an auctioneer, you worked the crowd carefully, diligently and completely! Wow! What an incredible and productive “Raise the Paddle” this year. In this your second year with Overlake, our guests were delighted that you knew so many of them and they have commented on the great interactions they had with you. Brad, you’re the best and we look forward to working together again.

Many thanks for your outstanding professionalism and commitment to customer service we received during the planning and implementation of our recent dinner auction. Your auction team was absolutely amazing throughout the process from the front office to the night-of staff. The Northwest Benefit Auctions staff truly represented your company well, and using Auction Maestro was the right move to make for our organization. The skills and experience of auctioneer, Brad Goode, to engage the audience certainly helped bring the crowd to higher spending levels that evening. Thank you very much and congratulations to Northwest Benefit Auctions for a job well done.

Brad Goode is the best Master of Ceremonies that we have ever had! His charisma, talent, humor, are unparalleled and we are so glad that he is a part of our Gala again this year. Since Brad joined our team we have raised nearly $2 million in support of The 5th Avenue Theatre’s education and outreach programs – Brad Rocks!

Brad Goode has been a key influential element in the success of our annual golf tournament and auction! His ability to personalize the event and communicate meaning and purpose has brought bigger bids and happier guests. He eludes joy and compassion as he works the room and finds a way to include everyone from the biggest corporate donors to the newest additions with smaller budgets. We don’t know what we’d do without him!
