Raising Paddles became a reality in 2017. After 30+ years of serving charities as a part-time auctioneer, our journey became more mission focused after the loss of our daughter, who had a passion for missions and charities. Her bright spirit inspires each day to bring our talents and services to help as many charities and non-profits maximize their potential to serve their constituents in a positive way.
