HUNT was founded October 6, 2016 on Pier 2 in Brooklyn Bridge Park overlooking the East River and Manhattan skyline. Our core values are possibility, diversity, imagination, holism and integrity. Paul Florez is our Head Auctioneer, and leads a growing team of fundraising hosts.


Our President is Lucas Hunt, a celebrated American poet born and raised in Iowa. He graduated from World Wide College of Auctioneering, and has a Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation from the National Auctioneer’s Association. 

HUNT is licensed, bonded and insured. We exceed the expectations of our clients and command generous financial commitments from donors, online and in person, by creating an exciting atmosphere of friendliness and good-will.
