We are delighted to welcome auctioneer Greg Quiroga to Big Night Out this year for the first time, but don’t be surprised if his is a familiar face. Based in San Francisco, he works with non-profit organizations all over the country, including plenty in Sonoma and Napa. We first met him at the Schulz Celebrity Golf Classic which, through Sonoma County Children’s Charities, has generously funded the Sonoma Academy Scholarship Program for sixteen years consecutively.After a couple of years trying to synch up our event date with Greg’s busy schedule, we are very pleased to have succeeded!
Greg works with over 50 non-profits, schools, foundations, arts organizations and charities to help raise over $10 million a year. His performances are always a fiery combination of passion, humor and heartfelt engagement. Greg’s favorite part of every auction is that moment when the crowd comes together to help change the world through the fund-a-need.
He also enjoys encouraging bidders “in the excitement of the moment” to dig deep in support of a great cause, and always manages to make people feel good about doing exactly that.
Greg and his wife live in San Francisco with their son, Ryder, who sold his first auction lot when he was just four years old.
