Johnny Ciao is a popular auction item (Live or Silent) at many charitable events. He has commanded up to $50,000 to present a private dinner party in the privacy one's home. Johnny will come to your event, meet and greet guests, sit in and perform with bands or d.j.'s on harmonica, as well as schmooze the room getting guests excited prior to his Live Auction, where he stands on stage and tells stories about his colorful experiences getting the bids higher and higher.
Johnny also appears on television and radio prior to each event to boost attendance, increase awareness to the cause and promote the event. He has been presenting and performing at many Benefits throughout the US over the past 20 years for such charitable organizations and events including US War Dogs, ALS, Make A Wish Foundation, Heroes For A Cure, Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, Oscar Parties, Sundance Film Festival, Chi Chi's Kids, the First Tee, John Deere Classic, Toys for Tots, MasterCard Celebrity Golf Challenges, Cerebral Palsey, and various Cancer groups.
He also presents his Caddy Snax on the 9th hole of a shotgun start, so as golfers approach the 9th hole they greeted by Johnny and fed delicious and inventive snacks. Check out this video of Johnny and Actor/Comedian Richard Kind on the Golf Course.
