BELLEVUE WA – 10-30-2018 ( — Maestro, the premier provider of charity and non-profit fundraising solutions used by major organizations nationwide, today announced that for the 18th consecutive year, their AuctionMaestro Pro and qCheck Payments software played a vital role in helping the Friends of Costco Guild raise over $10 million to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital

During a three-day period, the event, which kicked off Saturday, Aug. 11 with a VIP reception and concluded Monday, Aug. 13 with the 19th annual Children’s Golf Classic, in which 1,368 golfers competed on a number of Seattle-area courses, the Guild and hundreds of friends of Costco raised a record $10.1 million for uncompensated care at Children’s Hospital. Maestro provides the software that manages and tracks more than 10,000 charity events worldwide each year, tracking more than $1 billion charity dollars annually.”When we first started our Friends of Costco Guild Tournament we were on a single course and raised about $500K,” said Jan Sinegal, who founded the Guild. “Now 19 years later we have grown to 9 courses, 1,368 players and have raised over $100M. MaestroSoft has been with us from the beginning and I am not sure we could have managed that growth as easily without the tools and support we get from them. Our event is all about a great experience for our golfers and sponsors. We can manage that experience better when we know the data and payments are handled by the software. All event operations are managed using Maestro products including RSVP’s for attendees and golfers, tracking of sponsorships, registration check in and credit card capture, tracking of donations at the event.” MasetroSoft not only provides the leading tools for charity and non-profit auction success, they also provide world class support. Rosanna Bellotti, head of the Costco event team put it this way: “What great support. Whether I’ve had a quick question or run into a real puzzler, they’ve never let me down.  Even when I called the Night of Backup Support number to triple check a few details, they were available and helpful in spite of the late hour”.Jay Fiske, co-founder and CEO of MaestroSoft, was the first person to train Jan to use their software 19 years ago. He says the software manages auctions and events as expertly as QuickBooks manages businesses. DemoTo arrange a demo of any MaestroSoft product call (800)-438-6498 Option 1. About Friends of Costco Guild
