Going once … going twice … are you going to AACI’s 60th Anniversary Gala Auction? Here is your personal invitation!
On Thursday, February 23, 2012, AACI will be presenting this entertaining fund-raising evening. A conventional “sold to the highest bidder” auction will partner with a Chinese auction, which is more like a raffle.* The net result – fun for everyone and items for every budget!
A wine and cheese reception at 6:30 PM will kick off the activities and give you the opportunity to inspect the auction items and enter tickets for the Chinese Auction. The main event starts at 7:00 PM.
Come and bid on a wonderful array of goods and services! The eye-catching offerings (a few of which are pictured in this post) include:
- original artwork
- exciting tours
- Israel Opera tickets
- fine dining experiences
- exquisite Judaica items
- beauty packages
- an invitation to a Maccabi Electra basketball game as the guest of the great Tal Brody
- and the grand prize – one airline ticket to the US!
Online bids are being accepted for items in the conventional auction until midnight (Israel time) on February 15. See the catalog and/or submit your bid.
The catalog shows just a limited selection of the offerings. Many more goods and services, donated by our generous and creative supporters, will be available for sale ONLY on the night of the auction.
All sale proceeds will go to support AACI’s programs and activities.
The charge for this exciting and fun event is NIS 30 for members/NIS 40 for non-members, including two free 10 NIS tickets for the Chinese Auction. Additional tickets can be purchased at the event – and you’ll surely want more when you see what you can win.
The Gala Auction will be held
at: The AACI-Dr. Max and Gianna Glassman Family Center, 37 Pierre Koenig/2 Poalei Tzedek, Talpiot, Jerusalem (see map)
on: Thursday evening, February 23, 2012, beginning at 6:30 PM.
* NOTE: The Chinese “auction” is really a type of raffle; after purchasing tickets, YOU decide which items to focus on. The more tickets you buy, the more chances you have to win.
