“This is just a small note to say a huge thank you for Wednesday evening. We raised a large amount of money which is a huge help for the athletes going to PyeongChang and you played a huge part of that. Your enthusiasm and skill to working the room was incredible. It was a hard room, and I know you were poorly during the day but you would have never known. I have had so much positive feedback about the night and your engaging section of the evening, even to those who weren’t bidding.”

“Charlie did a fabulous job on the evening and we have received many letters of thanks for the evening with Charlie mentioned on more than one occasion. Charlie was also a delight to work with and has a charm which many would die for.”
