What 3 of Our Clients Say What We Do
United Way of Tampa Bay
Thank you so much for working with us on our fundraising event the Art of Giving on April 30th. I wanted to let you know that we more than tripled our revenue from the silent auction because of working with you.
I appreciate your professionalism, your attention to detail and high level of customer service that both you and Jan provided to our guests. Your eye for what would sell to our crowd was impeccable and I believe was the main contributor to the tripling of the auction revenue.
You made everything so easy for us by providing a turn key auction. Thank you!
It is our intention to work with you in the future and plan to get the date for next years Art of Giving on you calendar as soon as we have it. I hope you will enjoy coming back as much as we enjoyed having you. Please let me know if there is anything we can do for you.
Thank you again. You made a big difference in our event, in a time when fundraising is a challenge.

To Whom It May Concern,
Whenever anyone mentioned "Silent Auction" I would cringe and dread all the work and time that I knew would be involved. That was "BD"- Before Dennis.
Dennis Benda & his assistant Jan from Art a La Carte are a God send. They do it all. They set up for the event, provide all the items, collect for all items sold, package them up, and break everything down.
The two of them made our lives here at the Halifax Medical Center Foundation so much easier. We have had 2 fund-raisers in the last 2 weeks with Silent Auctions at both and Art a La Carte handled it all.
Our attendees were thrilled with the great selection, the professionalism and the expertise this company provides.
If you are considering a Silent Auction and want it to be a success then your next thought should be "I better give Dennis Benda a call at Art a La Carte". I know you won't be disappointed, we sure weren't.
If you would like to speak with me please call me at Halifax Medical Center Foundation (386)254-4111 or your may e-mail me at carol.holton@.halifax.org.

To Whom it may Concern,
Having been involved with Special Events at the Central Florida Zoo for ten years, I have had many calls from outside sources who suggest their intent is to assist in our fund raising efforts. Some have been effective, some not.
I have been the Staff Chairperson for our largest gala, Black Tie on the Wild Side, for six years. This event features a cocktail hour, raffle, silent auction and dinner and dancing. Over the course of the years, procurement of auction items of quality has become increasingly difficult.
Two years ago, I received a call from Dennis Benda at Art a la Carte. Dennis explained that he could supplement our auction items with an eclectic selection of paintings, jewelry, handbags, sculptures and one- of-a-kind ceramic tiles. I set an appointment to view the goods at the Longwood warehouse.
We were very impressed with the selection and decided on the number of pieces for our auction. Not only does Art a la Carte provide the pieces, the expert staff sets up, breaks down, and works the entire event. I have never encountered another company that provides such complete service.
We are approaching our 3rd Gala with Art a la Carte on board, and I cannot imagine doing it without them. The addition of the Art a La Carte items has translated to increased revenues, and that is the name of the 501-C3 game.
We have built a relationship of trust Art a la Carte and I leave the decisions on what items to bring to the Art a la Carte crew. They have the experience and never repeat an item. When event time arrives, it is so great to have one less thing about which to worry.
If anyone is questioning a partnership with Art a la Carte, I would encourage it. Please call me at (407) 323-4450 ext 136 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
