"When you talk about Larry Zucker, words such as creativity and originality instantly come to mind.  The mastermind behind countless successful fundraising events, Larry's commitment to every organization he works with is second only to the inevitable gratitude the numerous beneficiaries of his efforts experience after the last dollar raised is tallied."
- Dan Guererro-UCLA, Director of Athletics

"Larry Zucker is truly a fundraising master! As the Co-Founder of the national retail chain, Tilly’s and Founder of the non-profit, Tilly’s Life Center, I have witnessed Larry’s expertise firsthand. Through his innovative concepts and professional advice as well as key introductions such as the Stars and Stripes Tournament in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, we have seen increased net proceeds for our charity. He really does know all the secrets!"
- Tilly Levine-Co-Founder Tilly’s National Retail Chain

"Larry's book should be a must read for ANY nonprofit of any size that wants to produce any fundraising event. I have known him for more than 30 years and worked with him in our building (Arrowhead Pond and The Honda Center) for the Front & Center series and attended most of his Cal State Fullerton auctions. I have employed him for numerous events to produce the auctions for nonprofits that I was involved. Read his book and you will make more money and have happier attendees. Hire him and you will make even more money.”  
- Tim Ryan-President & CEO, The Honda Center and COO, Anaheim Ducks NHL Hockey Team

"In my over 40 years of representing professional athletes I have seen how their involvement in charitable and community causes can make a real difference in the quality of life off-the-field. Helping people who can't help themselves is doing God's work. Larry Zucker has presented a dynamic template in "The Secrets of Charity Fundraising" to make anyone involved in fundraising for a charity more effective in maximizing events. This book is an easy to read, handy guide."
