Cherokee Bend Chief PTO

Having been a novice to the auction process, Christie King and Jean Kirchner were an enormous resource for me during the planning and implementation phases of our PTO auction.  They both were able to answer many questions about how to set up the venue, organize our solicitation process and establish guidelines for our donors and bidders.  As plans moved forward, they were instrumental in helping us set deadlines for our catalog production and ticket sales so that our event was communicated to our parents timely.  Their guidance prevented us from missing opportunities to generate revenue and inform the parents of why we were raising money in the first place.  Their professionalism in the planning stage and during the event with our parents and school administration was top notch.

I cannot imagine that our event would have been nearly the success it was without the direct involvement of both Christie and Jean.  I truly enjoyed my interaction with them and our team.  They made the process a smooth one and I look forward to being able to work with them both in the future.


Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama

This was my first year serving as the Special Events Coordinator at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama, and I wasn’t sure what to expect stepping into my new role behind the scenes. Christie and Jean made me feel so confident going into our Heart of the House Gala this August. Every detail was covered and everything was done with the utmost professionalism at C King Benefit Auctions. We had an incredible night, and Christie’s energy, knowledge, and expertise ensured our guests and volunteers had the best experience possible. I am so thankful for the team at C King! They’re truly one in a million! – Katie Hannah


  • In just 4 years C King Benefit Auctions has helped Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama increase their live auction revenue 234%

First Light Homeless Shelter

A six-year partner with C King Benefits, First Light Homeless Shelter’s Director of Volunteer Services, Deb Everson, said she is always impressed by how easy her planning is with CKBA. “You have the words, the wisdom, the experience and the forms we can borrow. [CKBA] made it much simpler for us.”

Gadsden Symphony Orchestra

CKBA is wonderful! CKBA’s guidance, support and professionalism were exemplary. We are planning our second annual fundraising gala right now, and we would not consider any other agency for the event” – Dr. Norman Dasinger, President

  • Hired CKBA for their first auction fundraiser
  • Raised over 300% of their goal

Visiting Nurse Health System

Dedicated to helping people recover from illness in their own home, Visiting Nurse Health System is based in Atlanta. Opting for a special appeal through CKBA, their Director of Corporate Development Sue Carpenter said it became her favorite part of the evening.

  • Doubled their previous year's event total the first year they brought CKBA on board

Camp Bridges Foundation Wine Auction

Having tried the free auctioneer route in years prior, the Camp Bridges Foundation knew that if their fundraising event were responsible for such a large part of their annual revenue, they had to invest in their foundation’s future. With the new ideas C King Benefits brought to the table, their event increased its revenue, and their executive board member Lyric Brogden said afterward “We will not have this event without Christie!”

  • Hired a Benefit Auction Specialist when the free route didn't work

enAble of Georgia

Thank you so much for a truly outstanding effort and result at our 25th Gala on March 2. We were all so impressed with your style, entertaining but persuasive push to bring in the best bid possible. I have been to numerous auctions in which the audience felt put upon or badgered; you made people want to bid. I am hopeful that this is the beginning of a long relationship with you. -Harry Stern, CEO
