On many occassions I have worked with charitable efforts that Robert Gates has given his time and talents to the cause, serving as a auctioneer for various events.
He never steps to the microphone without prior knowledge of the goods being sold and makes every effort to get the best possible results. Above all, Robert is personable and entertaining but he definately knows how and when to be serious.

He is an absolute joy to work with and you will not be disappointed.
