WORDS FROM OUR PARTNERS


"Mellisa’s attention to detail, and ability to generate donations and bids, will make your job as Event Chair a great deal easier. Her fee will come back to you tenfold as a result of her company’s unique ability to generate revenue while making the process a lot of fun for everyone involved."
- Wayne AaronsonthinkLA Chair
"The Charity Angels revolutionized how we collect donations at our fundraisers. In the past, we have used volunteers to collect donations, but we decided to invest in using The Charity Angels for the past three years and they have proven to be a smart investment. The Angels are true professionals and do an excellent job of educating themselves on the cause they are representing. I find that they go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that the event is as successful as possible. Mellisa Neilsen is a pleasure to work with and is a great resource for ways to raise money in creative and interactive ways that the donors enjoy. I have recommended The Charity Angels to other non-profit organizations and they have proven themselves to be a must have for any fundraising event."
- Lindsey AbrahamsonExecutive Director, The Brent Shapiro Foundation For Alcohol and Drug Awareness
"I knew Mellisa socially, but, when she and her Charity Angels came out to help fundraise at our golf event, they were fantastic. Mellisa and her team are classy, cordial, fun and social. They raised more money than we ever anticipated and simply had everyone enjoying themselves while they gave."
- Kent SetonCo-Founder Athletes Touch Open
"I first saw The Charity Angel’s at work when I attended a golf tournament in 2013 and knew that we had to have them for our first Annual Golf Tournament in April of 2014. Mellisa’s honesty, integrity, invaluable advise and support were vital to our success. The smart and beautiful Angel’s did a great job selling out our opportunity board and auction items. Mellisa raised more money that we had even thought possible with her talented auctioneering. We were so thrilled with everything that the Charity Angel’s had done for our organization that we hired them again for our Annual Gala in March, 2015 and of course our second golf Tournament in April, 2015 when Melissa doubled our previous year’s fundraising goal. Mellisa and The Charity Angel’s will always play a major role in our fundraising events and have already booked her for our Gala and Golf Tournament in 2016."
- Dee Summers, Shane's Inspiration

"The key to a successful event should be to reach your fundraising goal while, at the same time, making sure your participants have fun and educated on your cause. The Charity Angels were intergral in accomplishing this for us. Even though this was our 4th tournament Mellisa provided us with fresh insight, invaluable advise, and support for our committee -- she is a true golf pro."
- Steve MortonCo-Chair Pars for the Stars, Vista Verde Foundation
"The Angels were heroic in helping me with the check-out/cash-out of the Casino and handling all the raffles. I am GRATEFUL beyond belief. I could not have done it with my volunteers, your team was instrumental to our success"
- Scott CorwinVice President, Los Angeles Trial Lawyers Charity
"I have worked with Mellisa and her Charity Angels team for the past 13 years. For any charity golf tournament or gala dinner  that does not consider hiring them to do the “day of” fundraising is missing out-the professional, easy-goin  way they work with the guests. Their ability to make everyone feel comfortable while raising significant dollars for each charity is a special talent. The Charity Angels are a great investment in any event looking to keep the “fun in fundraising” while raising much more money on the day of your event."
- Bob LeveyFounder, Independent Events & Media
"Investing in the Charity Angels was one of the smartest things we have done for our golf tournament.  We have been working with Mellisa and the Charity Angels since 2011.  The Angels are professional and do a great job of educating themselves on the cause as well as the items being raffled off.  Not only do Mellisa and the Angels assist us in raising money, they also provide us with advice and support.

Thank you!!"

EVERYONE could not have been more complimentary. Any words of advice you might have for us in terms of further improving the event and end results next year would be welcome and appreciated.

"Hiring Mellisa was the smartest thing we did to prepare for our Fund  A Need auction.  As an auctioneer, Mellisa presents the right blend of confidence and high energy with being very personable and authentic.  Our audience really liked her.  Mellisa also thoroughly knows the ins and outs of a Fund-A-Need event.  She was invaluable in providing us with the guidance we needed to prepare for this event. She helped us to raise more funds than we dreamed we could. I cannot recommend anyone more enthusiastically than Mellisa Nielsen to be the auctioneer for a Fund-A-Need event!"

"From our entire team here at ADL, THANK YOU for everything last night. Your diligent preparation was evident and you brought focused and professional energy to the table. While it was, in truth, a bit of a tough crowd, you softened them as much as possible and kept the energy light, positive and focused on the pieces, as well as the cause. We could not have asked for anything more.

The night was a success and a large portion of it would not have been possible without your help. Additionally, your immense generosity and willingness to assist throughout the evening, wherever possible, was fantastic.

Please note that we received compliment after compliment in reference to your demeanor and presentation. As you know, when it comes down to it, art is subjective and you never know if and what will be coveted. When all is said and done, we sold nine of nine items and raised vital dollars for an important cause."
- ADLAnti-Defamation League
"Thank you again for your support yesterday and for the amazing work of the Charity Angels! The day would not have been such a success without your outstanding role as our auctioneer. You have an energy and excitement that is infectious, and it obviously engaged our guests as well."
