The Nigro Brothers: Auctioneers For Charity

Matthew Long-Middleton

The Nigro Brothers have been fixtures of philanthropy in Kansas City for the last 30 years. They perform around 140 auctions and manage to raise $6 million a year.

From a charity perspective, they are a surefire way to raise lots of money and what is their fee for auctioneering? Absolutely nothing. The Nigro Brothers perform masterful auctioneering purely for the charity.

Host Elizabeth Alex chats with the Nigro Brothers about how they got into the auctioneering game and how they continue to perfect their skills.
