ANNOUNCEMENT: JAY MANDARINO TO BE OFFICIAL AUCTIONEER FOR THE 7th ANNUAL FIGHT TO END CANCER GALA!

Over the past 27 years, Jay Mandarino has raised more than 50 million dollars for hundreds of charities worldwide by performing as a professional auctioneer through his Not-For-Profit Corporation, JBM Auction Services.


At his day job, he is President and CEO of 31 companies including one of the world’s largest Not-For-Profit indoor skateboard parks.

The link called “Sightings” on his company’s website, www.jbmauctionservices.com, shows Jay with many of the celebrities that he has worked with, both professionally and philanthropically.

Jay has performed at events from Los Angeles to Miami to New York to Toronto, for David Foster, Sting, Gordon Ramsay, Michael “Pinball” Clemons, Eva Longoria, Jude Law, Michael Bolton, and Sir Elton John. Jay is an outstanding auctioneer and performer whose motto is, “Lend a hand, by raising yours.”

Jay serves on the Board of Directors for the Learning Disabilities of Ontario and has served on the Pinball Clemons Foundation Board, as well as many other worthy Boards.  His philanthropic work has been acknowledged in many editorial articles, letters of praise and with numerous awards including three medals.  The Diamond Jubilee Medal from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship from the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, recognizing individuals who, through exceptional long-term efforts, have made outstanding contributions to their communities, and the Order of International Ambassadors Medal.  Jay was awarded Hero of the Year and the Urban Hero Award in the category of sports for his Not-For-Profit CJ’s SKATEPARK.

No stranger to the Fight To End Cancer, Jay is extremely honoured to be attending and contributing to the cause.

“I lost my father, my mother, both uncles and an aunt, a business partner, several staff and many friends to cancer.

It is something that affects all of us and whatever we can do to play a part in finding a cure to end this horrible disease we must do it!

I started a program four years ago called “kids being Kids” a program which is free for kids and their families affected by cancer.

Of all the things I do all over the world, the event we do several times a year is one of the most rewarding and at the same time sad and fun, empowering these young kids who are really our true heroes and giving them some opportunities just to be kids and have fun .”
