Hamptons Heart Ball

Erin Ward




Celebrity benefit auctioneer to head fundraising for annual American Heart Association gala in Southampton on June 22

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y.  — New York State auctioneering champion Erin Ward will lead the fundraising efforts at the annual American Heart Association’s Hamptons Heart Ball on June 22 at the Southampton Arts Center, the annual East End event.  Hot off of generating more than $1 million for GLAAD at the LGBTQ advocacy group’s GLAAD Media Awards honoring Beyonce, Jay Z and Madonnathe celebrity auctioneering champion and president of the New York City Auctioneering Association is now heading to Southampton in order to use her A-list fundraising skills to help the AHA eradicate heart disease and stroke.

A third-generation auctioneer who has raised well over $100 million to date through her companies Star Benefit Auctions and Inspire Hearts Fundraising, Ward's specialty is raising money for charities through live auctions and paddle raises, which offer opportunities to donate that encourage entire rooms of patrons to participate, which she calls “onsite crowdsourcing.”

“As a Long Island resident who began my career in the nonprofit world before becoming an auctioneer, I am especially excited to lead the bidding at the American Heart Association’s annual charity event in Southampton,” said Ward. “Heart disease and strokes affect millions, and only through a dedicated effort can we find the best possible treatments and preventions.”

A woman who has risen to the top of a traditionally male dominated field, Ward is a performer in her own right, donning designer dresses as she leads auctions for worthy causes. She possesses a special touch that inspires guests to connect with deserving charities and dig deep in their pockets in support of humanitarian missions — whether it be fighting cancer, championing equality, educating children or protecting the environment. An entrepreneur with a heart, Ward has made it her mission to help the less fortunate and she travels throughout New York, nationally and internationally in order to generate needed funding.


Upcoming events for Ward include the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (in Bethpage), Hudson River Museum (in Yonkers), and the United States Merchant Marine Academy (in Roslyn).
