Half of the Dynamic Duo
Sandy H. Schmidt, designer, superhero, Fundraising Consultant, and Speaker, is here to change the world, with or without, a cape. Her secret superpowers? Giving back to the community, making things beautiful, and dancing the night away. In 2016, she stumbled (or was gently pushed) into the world of fundraising after she was invited to an event. As she watched the room light up, hearts open, and the generosity of guests as they supported the cause, she knew she couldn’t resist the call. Today, she is the COO of Astounding Auctions & Fundraising Strategies.
Sandy has seen the endless compassion of others while growing up. Her work is driven by a genuine desire to “pay it forward.” With a true passion for the community where she lives, she’s always on the lookout for ways to give back. With her practical, can-do attitude and wild creativity, event styling and strategizing is a perfect outlet for her natural talent. Whether she’s constructing elaborate silent auction decor or putting together the perfect place settings for a VIP event, it’s sure to be the perfect match and get the givers giving.
She takes pride in pumping up the “wow” factor at each of her events! Committed to making a difference in the world, she genuinely enjoys planning with a purpose. Outside the Astounding Auctions office, she enjoys creating new decor items to add little pops of personality to events for her friends and their homes. For Sandy, there’s always a new vignette or floral arrangement to dream up!
