"This year was the first time Disabled Resource Services included a live auction component to our event and the first time using an auctioneer. Jim was amazing! Wine Fest is an informal mingling event and Jim managed to reel the crowd into the live auction. At the suggestion of Jim and the WOW staff, we did a charity appeal with our live auction and we were extremely pleased with the results. Jim's dynamic personality made the live auction sales a success! We look forward to working with WOW next year and having even more success with our live and silent auction."
-Marj Grell, Disabled Resource Services
“This was the second year Disabled Resource Services used an electronic bidding system for our silent auction. This year we used the WOW Events electronic bidding system, and what a difference. The WOW system with its support for Text and Web Browser bidding and bid tracking was much easier for our patrons to understand, and we increased our Silent Auction income significantly. We also included a live auction this year with Jim Berz. He was fantastic! He was phenomenal at using his talents to keep a freeform mingling crowd engaged and entertained. I was extremely pleased at the success of our first live auction, and all the credit goes to Jim and his talents. We look forward to using Jim again next year.
Matt, Jim and all the WOW Events staff were easy to work with, had great ideas to help make our event even better. I would highly recommend WOW Events and all their services.”
-Dan Ashbaugh, Disabled Resource Services
“It seems like as soon as I get the microphone on my hand, that's when I get excited, that's when the energy starts pumping, and just to see all the faces when you know we have a good cause, we've got great items, and it's just an opportunity to really connect with people, raise a lot of money, and also have a good time”
-Jim Berz, Auctioneer Extraordinaire
