When I was selected to receive the 2012 Legacy Award, it was one of the defining moments of my life. As Aurea presented the award to me, the reality of “Live Your Legacy”dream turned into reality. It was validation and affirmation that the sacrifices and my life’s purpose had meaning in this world. Thank you Aurea for all that you do. You are inspiring to me and to this world.

Thanks to Aurea McGarry as our live on stage auctioneer at our fundraiser benefiting the Boys and Girls Club and The Nancy Lieberman Foundation, she was able to raise $12,000.00 in less than 1 hour for our cause which allowed these children to have a safe place to play on their very own DreamCourt! Aurea truly has the necessary skills and talent to help any non profit achieve their financial goals!
Aurea McGarry has hosted our fundraiser/concert “Karl’s Call for Life”, two years in a row.She is entertaining and livens up the evening with her energy and charisma. She is funny but she is inspiring and gets the audience to participate. She had our audience on their feet dancing.” I am blessed to have her in my life.
