A Higher Calling Benefit Auctions

Calling Benefit Auctions, Achieving HIGHER Results!

"My name is Dr. James Filipiak, and I recently spoke on behalf of Jorie Wilson Rogers, at the 3 Little Birds 4 Life Jamaican Fund-Raiser in which Toney Thornhill was the auctioneer with "A Higher Calling Benefit Auctions." From the very "second" that I walked into the Hilton till the minute I spoke, Toney had me informed, prepared and organized.  His passion for his job to be a "higher calling" is obvious in his enthusiasm and presence. He did a fantastic job of getting the crowd involved in a compassionate and comfortable fashion, considering it was a cancer benefit.  I would highly recommend his services for your events...With great Respect!"

"The thing I like about working with A Higher Calling Benefit Auctions was probably your confidence in how you know you can do what is best our organization and for our wish recipients."  Jeree Kent 3 Little Birds 4 Life Committee Member

"Having Toney with Higher Calling by our side as we held our 2nd Dinner and Benefit Auction was a great investment for Atai Orphanage Fund. Toney helped us take our event to the next level. His ideas and energy kept our event full of life and pocketbooks open! One of the biggest comforts for me personally was once we got to the event, Toney was the one doing all the work.  The weeks leading up to the event Toney gave us suggestions and advice. He answered our questions and helped to ease pre-event anxieties. Toney is passionate and extremely knowledgeable about his job. His ideas are unique and creative. We look forward to continuing to work with A Higher Calling Benefit Auctions for our future events." 


"Toney Thornhill and A Higher Calling Benefit Auction Company offered their professional services to El Shaddai Children's Home for our first benefit auction. I was very impressed by Toney's thorough understanding of the auction process, and I respected his expert opinion in organizing and structuring our event. He was creative, confident, and purposeful in the way he structured our auction, and we know that with his help we were able to earn more than we could have done without him. We are very grateful for his services and recommend him to others who would like to make their benefit auction a success."

"We had a mock auction with play money (with real items to bid on) at the pack meeting for the boys last night and had a BLAST! The boys were really getting into it and the adults enjoyed it too. I want to put out a special "Thank You" for Toney Thornhill from A Higher Calling Benefit Auction for coming out and making it hands down the most exciting pack event this year"  Patrick Cunningham 

“We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to have Toney and his crew provide their time and expertise to our Let's Play Auction held on Saturday, February 27, 2010. This annual event is our largest fundraiser for our school each year. This year's event celebrated the 30th anniversary for Clayton Child Center. Toney did an awesome job engaging our guests during the evening, for both our silent and live auctions. He connected with our audience and helped us raise more money that we expected this year. Thank you Toney for a well done and for being part of our event. With confidence, I would certainly recommend Toney for your upcoming event. Thank you again!"


"THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER...Toney was the auctioneer as well as the DJ at my cancer benefit back in September. It was the most awesome thing ever. He was the greatest, he made me cry (which is very hard to do) :) Toney and his auction company come highly recommended in my book!! THANK YOU AGAIN!"
