“As past president of the Regina Cougar Hockey Alumni and Board member of the “Cougar” golf tournament, we rely on the live auction performed by Rob as a key element to our continuing success, raising funds for the U of R hockey program and scholarships. The live auction at times doubles our money raised at the event and most of the credit goes to Rob’s style, delivery and approach to a live auction. He has a great sense of reading a room and determining how to get the most out of his audience. Not only is he successful in raising funds, but his style is truly entertaining and he is able to draw everybody in and make them feel a part of the action. Do yourself a favor and hire Rob at your next event.”
Darren Wilcox, Cougar Hockey Alumni
“I would like to recommend Sharky and the Guys as an auctioneer for your event. We have used Sharky and the Guys as an auctioneering team at our Ducks Unlimited Ladies Event for the past number of years. They have helped us raise a great deal of money for our organization through the live auction. Sharky and his team have been very professional and have been able to keep the audience involved in the auction. His team have been very alert and have not overlooked any bids. We have had a lot of good feedback from our attendees and plan on using his team at our future events.”
Marilyn Mohr – Ticket Chair – Regina Ducks Unlimited Ladies Committee
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank as well as recommend Robert Jamont and crew for auctioneering services. He has provided an excellent service to many Ducks Unlimited Events throughout the province of Saskatchewan. He has had a hand in helping to raise over a million dollars for Ducks Unlimited Canada.
Robert not only preforms auctioneering duties but also provides entertainment which is important when trying to raise dollars. He keeps the auction fresh, keeps attendees interested and bidding. The spotters keep the entertainment going and get the audience involved as well. As a group they leave nothing on table at the end of the night.
I would recommend Robert to any group whether it be a boys night out, an all ladies event or a mixed event. He sets the tone for a successful event”.
