Poetry and Philanthropy: Elevating Benefit Auctioneering Beyond the Ordinary featuring Lucas Hunt

Poetry and philanthropy share several commonalities, including expression, impact, connection, creativity, and legacy. Whether through words or actions, they convey feelings, stories, and messages, stirring sentiments and inspiring change. Both also foster connections through shared experiences. It’s a poignant parallel thought.

But what does this have to do with benefit auctioneering?

Introducing Lucas Hunt, a celebrated American poet whose work has graced the pages of The New York Times and earned him The John Steinbeck Award for poetry. But Lucas’s talents extend beyond the realm of literature.
