We are quite pleased with the 25% increase that Tom achieved for us. He set a new precedent and challenge for next year’s incoming chairperson.
Lynden, WA (PRWEB) February 15, 2006
Charity auctioneer Tom DiNardo of DiNardo & Lord Auctioneers set three new charity wine auction records in just over one week. From January 27 to February 4, 2006 Tom DiNardo presided over three wine auctions which were conducted for non profit organizations located in both California and Utah.
Mr. DiNardo’s first success and record was established at the January 27, 2006 Zinfandel Advocates and Producer’s (ZAP) annual “Winemaker’s Dinner” held in San Francisco, California. ZAP Auction Coordinator - Amy Terhorst said, “The new record of $77,550 dollars was virtually guaranteed as wine auctioneer Tom DiNardo and renowned auctioneer Fritz Hatten (Napa Valley Wine Auction) worked the crowd up into a bidding frenzy. We had fewer auction lots to sell this year versus last year, and Tom and Fritz made us even more money.”
On January 28, 2006 DiNardo & Lord Auctioneers presided over the annual “Vintage Red & White Affair” in Napa, California. “This second event proved a little more challenging. There were multiple fundraisers, wine events, and charity auctions occurring throughout Napa Valley this evening. I was hoping to do even better, but I can’t complain in establishing a new record for the school”, states DiNardo. Auction Chairperson, Lorie Janes said, “We are quite pleased with the 25% increase that Tom achieved for us. He set a new precedent and challenge for next year’s incoming chairperson.”
Tom DiNardo’s third record was achieved at the 2006 Culinary, Wine & Ski Classic in Park City, Utah. “This event was a phenomenal success,” stated Chappie Lehman, a board member and father to the event’s producer and executive director Penny Kinsey. Ms Kinsey stated, “This is our first year at running this week long fundraising event. Tom was a tremendous help throughout the entire process. We figured we would be happy if we earned 35K to 50K at both of our auctions. DiNardo & Lord Auctioneers made us well over $130,000 at just one of the auctions. We are still totaling these amazing results!”
