What The Media and Dave's Clients Say:
"Dave is such a pleasure to work with, not only the day of the event, but in the weeks leading up to the event as well. He’s always willing to meet, speak and help plan. He’s game to do just about anything (within reason, although who knows)… I’m amazed by his poise and humor with our intergenerational group. He speaks to everyone of all ages. We have worked with Dave in person and by zoom and he was excellent in both capacities. Thank goodness for Dave. He’s a keeper and I hope he’s always available for our events. I can’t imagine having one without his presence!"
Fawn Mendel, Scarsdale Synagogue
“Our Catholic elementary school has been working with Comedian/Auctioneer, Dave Goldstein, for the past three years. Dave has been professional in his guidance and generous with his time. He has a wonderful way of blending his comedy and bidding strategy to the specific audience with whom he is interacting. Dave’s tagline, “The Tastefully Hilarious Auctioneer” could not be truer. Our community looks forward to his return each year. Any organization would be fortunate to have Dave help host their fundraising event”.
Laureen Brady, St. Margaret Regional School
"High energy. High impact. Raised $70,000 in about 10 minutes and kept the guests laughing all the while."
Lois Bhatt, Bridges Outreach
"Dave was a great auctioneer! He was great to work with and helped us pull off a very successful event. Throughout the process he was easy to communicate with and his expertise helped us price our packages for maximum fundraising. He was humorous and was able to work the room. I would highly recommend him."
Kim Zwisdak, The Chapel School
"What an amazing success the 22nd Annual Ticonderoga Ball was this year at the Union League Club in New York City! This was by far the most wonderful event we have ever had and you played a vital role in its success. As our live auctioneer, through your talents, we raised more money than ever before. Your personality and professionalism provided the perfect blend for that success.
"David you provide the perfect combination of savvy, humor, and sophistication. Our audiences love you and that is rare with auctioneers. As a professional who has run hundreds of events around the country, you are a true treasure in all ways. I look very forward to working with you on many events!"
Sharon Burstein, Fort Ticonderoga
"Don't bother hosting an auction for your organization if you're not planning to use Dave Goldstein. He meticulously does his research, weaving anecdotes and personal references about the client into his routine. Thanks to an engaging personality, incredible sense of humor, knack for timing, and understanding of the client's needs, Goldstein surely delivers. We will definitely use him again for another MDS event!"
Karen Brooks, Manhattan Day School

“May I suggest, that if you are thinking of hiring Dave Goldstein as the auctioneer for your auction, DO IT! Dave just headed up our annual Friends of the Library Fun Auction and he was terrific. He is great to work with and has an easy-going sense of humor that keeps everyone laughing...and bidding.”
Joan Taub, Belleville, NJ Public Library
“Dave was a pleasure to work with and really came prepared. He asked a lot of questions to have a thorough understanding of each item up for bid, and was quick and able to recognize on his feet that the most likely bidders were in the room. His execution was witty, entertaining and on the mark with our audience. I would use him again and feel comfortable recommending him to others hosting similar events.”
Carolyn Lake, Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry
