Fundraising auctioneer Tom DiNardo often asks himself in early Spring of each year “What is March Madness?” The month of March is perhaps one of the busiest months during the year for nonprofits and charities in terms of their fundraising efforts. More benefit auctions are conducted by nonprofits and charities during month of March than any month thoughout the year. This trend truly appears to lack explanation except for perhaps United Way fundraising rules and blackout dates, which govern when member nonprofits are allowed to conduct their fundraising efforts.
What personal impact does the month of March have on benefit auctioneer Tom DiNardo? “This is a month of virtual insanity, sleep deprivation and excessive travel all for a good causes – the charities and nonprofits we work with” says DiNardo. Beginning in late January Tom DiNardo will often work day from his average ten hour day to twelve or more hours a day as the charity season begins. He consults with his nonprofit clients and assists them in preparing for their upcoming events. February bring a few more auctions during the month, and Tom extends the work week from five to six days a week minimum. March is a month of seven day work weeks and sixteen to twenty hour work days.
This month alone DiNardo & Lord Auctioneers charity auctioneers had traveled to multiple states and crossed the continent more than a few times. From Washington, Colorado, Florida, California and back to Washington. Just a few of the states we visited.
