Former Denver Bronco Reggie Rivers is a talented, quick-witted and experienced auctioneer. He has been doing benefit auctions for the past 20 years and has helped Colorado non-profits raise millions of dollars.

Reggie is a popular media personality, a well-respected philanthropist and someone who is well connected in the Denver nonprofit scene. When he comes to the podium, he’s not a stranger asking your guests to contribute, he’s a friend asking other friends to support your worthy cause. Reggie is a very effective and entertaining auctioneer.

We're thrilled to announce that Littleton Adventist Hospital matched our paddle raiser for The Legacy Fund for Mental Health with $50,000!  That means LPS will be able to deepen the impact even more helping kids, families, and staff work through adversity and build resiliency.
