Your Marquam Auction Agency Mistress of Ceremonies – Amanda Valley
Amanda Valley, energetic and entertaining emcee, has been captivating crowds for more than two decades on stage, film and television. (She was in the cast of Tony and Tina’s Wedding!) But Amanda’s favorite job yet is serving as Mistress of Ceremonies for fundraising events – she started making a name for herself years ago, after stepping in for a surprise performance at her kids’ school auction. People loved her off-the-cuff act, and now she’s asked back every year! As her reputation grew, more and more schools and nonprofits started seeking out the ‘Amanda experience.’ These days she is in demand for all kinds of live events! Combine those skills and passion with her years of performing, and what do you have? Well… what you DON’T have is a dull moment. Ever!
Amanda holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University. She worked at the Brave New Workshop in Minneapolis for years, doing improv, sketch comedy and corporate comedy. When she’s not helping deserving orgs raise tons of cash, Amanda loves spending time with her family and her rescued senior dog, Dominic. Come see her at an event and ask her to customize some song lyrics for you. Seriously – it’s this weird and awesome gift she has.
