“We had something happen that we have never experienced and it was something you can’t put a price tag on—six pro-choice people specifically told us they rethought their stands on abortion and some of them are now pro-life! Our total raised at this point is $246,0000—which comes to $351 per person, one of our best nights ever. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! The banquet was absolutely awesome. Scott Klusendorf did a fantastic job and was so easy to work with. I was very thankful for how he mingled and talked with guests. We have received many comments that Scott was the best speaker that we have ever had. He handled everything perfectly!”
“The banquet results were AMAZING! We raised over $112,000 (gross) and more than $95,000 the night of the banquet. We also met a couple of MDs at the banquet that might be able to serve as Medical director. They were on fire and one of these physicians was also our most generous donor. We prayed to God for his blessing on our clinic project and he answered by providing the capital funds for our clinic. We are still in shock because our last banquet was in 2007 and the gross income was $17,459.”
“Scott did an amazing job for us. God blessed us in a way that has totally taken our breath away. While our goal had been $250,000, today we are at a total of $372,000 with the figure continuing to grow. He not only knocked the ball out of the ballpark…he knocked it over a few fields!”
“It was an absolute success! Last year we raised $68,000 the night of the banquet and last night we made $101,000. Praise God! We absolutely loved working with Scott. His speech was moving, as was the appeal. More than that, he was just a pleasure to work with. I believe that he is our first guest speaker to offer help in setting up the table and chairs!”
“Scott Klusendorf helped give us our best ever banquet fund-raising effort. We raised $114,000 at our banquet, which was much higher than our ambitious goal of $105,000. The previous year, we raised $90,000, so we’re pleased to have raised $24,000 more this year.”
“Both events with Scott were fantastic. We had wonderful responses, and the appeal and donations were excellent. Both nights were record evenings, and were over 10% higher than our previous best banquet events. He couldn’t have been better. I have received many comments regarding the Charlottesville event on Friday, and Culpeper on Saturday----all GREAT reviews!“
