OneXOne Auction

I just wanted to comment on your posting of 25th October. It sounds like a fun night was had by all and a lot of money raised for a fantastic cause.

The auctioneer is the one who drives the event. We had the author Jeffrey Archer and, my personal opinion of him aside, he was great. Lively, very witty, he knew when to cajole and when the bids had reached their limit to move onto the next item. I got so carried away I nearly bid myself, only just remembering in time that as a lowly charity worker I earn next to nothing.

Congratulations to Matt to being such a great host on the night; as good as the wine probably was, he can take credit for being a great auctioneer. Marcia

PS. I'm sure I read it here some time ago that he planned to move his family back to Boston, maybe the move to New York (if it's true) is a step in the right direction.

Re: OneXOne Auction

Thanks for your comment Marcia - nice to hear from someone. The San Francisco event did look like great fun, but there's not many press reports around.

Matt did say a while back he would move the family to Boston when they were older. Will wait for more information on this one.

Lots of photos from a Florida voting rally with Matt are at PopSugar and Faded Youth blog.
