Kat Hardin is a benefit auctioneer and event consultant.  She is trained and endorsed by Lydia Fenet, Lead Benefit Auctioneer at Christie’s Auction House New York City. 

Kat is the author of the children’s book Bennie and Brave, a book about courage, kindness and inclusion.  She advocates for all children and teaches strong leadership principles.  She currently works with children with disabilities, including those with Down Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorder.  She advocates for others in a way that is fiercely persistent, genuine and full of love and kindness.  Being a Benefit Auctioneer is an extension of this mission. 

What we learned in 2020 is that people are even more generous and ready to give to their favorite organizations. As being in the fundraising field,we put our mission first, and the donors graciously and enthusiastically follow our lead.   I consider it a privilege to work alongside bold, optimistic and ambitious leaders in organizations that work toward social change and enriching  the lives of others.”   -Kat 

Cheers to a profitable and exciting fundraising season!
