Speaking at The River Church
Chris brings much excitement and energy to the stage as he entertains the guests, yet he relates to the crowd in a very personal way. Chris is very passionate and engages the crowd with his enthusiastic personality. I have even heard our guests say that they will return to future events to listen and be entertained by Chris again. Since 2010, Chris has helped Genesee Christian School raise over $500,000 at our auction events! Last year alone, Chris was able to raise over $96,000 in just the live auction portion of our event! Every year gets better and better.

“Where do we begin to describe how much energy Chris Swanson brought to our event? As the emcee and auctioneer for one of our biggest fundraising events of the year, Chris lit up the room with his enthusiasm and quick wit. He’s an outstanding talent, a natural in the spotlight and had the crowd engaged the entire time he was on stage. We hired Chris as our emcee for our annual Pink Night Palooza, a fundraiser fashion show party we hold every October. Over the years we’ve hired various emcees and auctioneers. A committee member recommended we contact Mr. Swanson about being both our emcee and auctioneer. He accepted and it’s easy to say we will be using him from now on. Chris did an outstanding job wowing the audience with his energy and charisma throughout the evening. There was never one moment the program lagged or the audience lost interest. Not only were they entertained, they were also inspired to dig deep in their pockets and we exceeded our fundraising goals. The feedback from guests was nothing but praise for an excellent job. Chris is an absolute professional and a delight to work with and we look forward to working him again in the years to come.”
