Chuck came through for my nonprofit gala last minute and he saved the day! My previous MC backed out 2 days before the event, and we SCORED with Chuck. I can honestly say he was the single best decision we made for the event. He was incredibly professional, he pumped up the crowd, and got many of our guests to bid on auction items as he is a very skilled auctioneer! I can not say thank you enough, Chuck! We look forward to working with you every year as you can help us grow our annual fundraisers!

Chuck Dukas is beyond amazing! Our private schools 60th Anniversary & Annual Benefit was a huge success! Our aim was to raise up our scholarship fund. With Chuck's incredible talent & professionalism, we raised over 500% from last year on our paddle raise alone! Chuck was carefully selected 6 mths prior to our event as our emcee/auctioneer. He made himself available for face to face planning meets, emails, & telephone calls leading up to event. He even donated a few show experiences to our auction which raised us an addt'l 6K on top!! Chucks professionalism, care, & passion cannot be overstated! He is one gifted human being! Can't wait to have him back!

My experience working with Chuck Dukas was superior. Chuck is a consummate professional. We met before the event to go over the timeline and review the silent, live and paddle for a cause portions of the event. Chuck familiarized himself with all of the items and even secured fun, Hollywood experience packages to donate to the silent auction. During the event, Chuck introduced himself to all of the Board members and VIPs attending. Chuck did a fabulous job instilling enthusiasm among all of the attendees. With his energy and professionalism, he was able to motivate guests to raise their bids. Everyone was impressed with his performance and stage presence.

Chuck Dukas was simply amazing! We could not have asked for a more professional, nicer person to be the voice of our Charity event. He gave me references when he first contacted me, he offered to come meet me as many times as I needed before the event and he did an amazing job all night long! He arrived early and got prepared and asked good questions, he had control of the crowd all night and even added in some of his personal flair that helped us earn even more money during the paddle raise! We found him on gig masters- we are so happy with our decision!

Crespi Carmelite High School was extremely pleased with Chuck's overall experience, professionalism, and performance on the night of our gala auction. Chuck's energy was on fire, and our live auction was a huge success because of it. From the moment the audience heard his voice, they knew a great show was about to begin. In addition he brought several silent auction items for us to auction off. Chuck is easy to work with and is willing to meet with you prior to the auction so that he is prepared the night of the gala. Crespi has already booked Chuck for next year's event. Thank you Chuck for making our 2016 gala auction a huge success!
