Jonathan Blair

Fundraising Auctioneer

jonathan.blair

I have been an auctioneer for almost 13 years, and over those years I have been blessed to be part of events that have helped schools buy new playground equipment, churches fund their mission trips, raised money for Cancer research, and helped fund medical programs in Africa.

With the unique experience in adopting a sibling set through foster care, I understand that fundraising events aren't just about an organization, but also about the lives they affect. Being able to help organizations involving children, schools, healthcare, and community solutions have become my passion.
