Tripled Our Revenue.
Thank you so much for working with us on our fundraising event.
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!
Thank you again. You made a big difference in our event, in a time when fundraising is a challenge.

They do It All
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 fundraisers 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.

When Event Time Arrives, It is so Great to have One Less Thing about which to Worry
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 set up, breaks down, and work 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 © 3 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.

...Great Evening of Fun for All
We want to thank you for your sponsorship of our 2005 Adult Spelling Bee with your generous contribution.
The competition was spirited and, combined with a great dinner, a silent art auction and raffle and door prizes of exceptional quality and value, it made for a great evening of fun for all.
Because you did what you did, we will be able to do what we do.

Your Merchandise Added the
"Bling" to Our Items
The event was a great success and I wanted to take the time to say thank you to Art a la Carte for the wonderful job that you did.
Dennis, you and Jan were so easy to work with and having Art a la Carte doing the bid sheets was really a blessing.
You made my job so much easier, Thank You!
Your merchandise added the "bling" to our items and created an excitement for the event that we both benefited from.
Dennis, I will certainly recommend Art a la Carte to anyone planning a silent auction. I really appreciated the quality of your merchandise, your professionalism and how easy it was to work with you.

Thank you again for your support of the Exchange. The attendees raved about the purses, jewelry, vases, and artwork you provided for the event, and the committee sincerely appreciated how easy you were to work with and your willingness to be flexible.
Needless to say, our event would not have been as successful without you.

I Never Worry when
You are Part of Our Team
Your participation in our Silent Auction, for a fourth time, made a vast difference in the quality of our offerings to our guests.
Your ability to provide a Silent Auction that is filled with fabulous, hand-selected pieces is essential to our fundraising success and it is very much appreciated.
You and your staff are extremely professional,knowledgeable and a dream to work with.
I never worry when you are part of our team, because I trust you and your judgment!
Our Donors were Thrilled.
We never offered an art silent auction before, and I can't tell how painless you made the whole experience. Our donors were thrilled with the selection.
Working with You on Large and Small Events has Always been Rewarding
Over the course of years I have been pleased to work with you on a number of projects, beginning with Winter Park Hospital in the late 1980s to our United Arts event planned for the fall of 2001 .
I have always found you true to your word, gracious, thorough, thoughtful and a total professional regarding event planning and execution.
The art quality of your galley is outstanding. While offering "art" for everyone's taste, the art you offer is of a high quality, unique and is reflective of your broad and considerable experience in the art promotions field.
As the Central Florida market matures and becomes mores sophisticated there will undoubtedly be greater need for what International Art offers-high quality art at affordable prices.
Working with you on large and small events has always been rewarding, both from point of view of the experience (the actual event) and financially rewarding for the non-profit, as well.
