HPAAC Gala – Meet your Auctioneer!

Are you ready to BID?

Be part of the LIVE auction with Auctioneer Erich Gabriel!

Auctioneer Erich GabrielErich Gabriel was raised on an Eastern Montana Ranch and then helped in the family construction business, where he learned his attention-to-detail as a part of a quality work ethic. Erich graduated from the World Wide College of Auctioneering in 2013 and has been deeply involved in the auction profession since.

In addition to using his talents to raise financial resources for non-profit organizations at benefit events across Minnesota, often the topic of auctioneering is front and center at home as well; Erich’s wife, Katie, and her entire family are professional auctioneers.

Erich has enjoyed serving as a volunteer and elder at his church, and recent volunteer opportunities have been with Global Volunteers in India teaching at schools and orphanages and helping to maintain trails and weed control with the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Foundation.

Erich has been able to use and share his auctioneering skills for many benefit auctions in the Twin Cities area with Fladeboe Auctions.  He enjoys working closely with non-profits, foundations and organizations in need of results fundraising.
