We founded C2Auctions in 2011 in order to fill a need in the nonprofit auction management space in Washington, D.C. We provide efficient, confident, and courteous service to help you reach your goals.

Cathy Albo is a principal at C2Auctions as well as an independent auction consultant at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School in Washington. An expert in donor and volunteer development, Cathy’s success is a result of her ability to lead, motivate, and inspire.

Before launching C2Auctions, Cathy spent 25 years at St. Patrick’s as the Associate Director of Development. In that role, she oversaw the school’s Annual Giving campaigns for many years, two capital campaigns, and the annual Auction to Benefit the Financial Aid Program. 


​​Her expertise helped grow the St. Patrick’s auction to be one of the most successful independent school endeavors in the city; recent gross revenues have approached $1M. As one of the beta test clients for MaestroPro, she is intimately familiar with the industry standard software.

Chris O’Shea is a principal at and co-founder of C2Auctions. Before joining C2Auctions full time, he spent a decade in independent school advancement and communications in Washington. Before coming to Washington, he spent five years in the hospitality industry, learning event planning and execution from the ground up. Chris has worked closely with donors and volunteers on all aspects of fundraising, particularly campaign and donor communications, and holds a master's degree in strategic communication from American University.
