Live Art Auction

Reminder: Tomorrow night.

The Auction benefits the Jubilee Center, the YMCA and Hoboken Rotary. This is just one of two fundraisers for the Rotary each year.

This past year they have spent money on:

  • A Literacy Program, providing personalized books to each 1st grader in Hoboken and a dictionary for each 3rd grader
  • A well project, they built a well in Uganda
  • The Gift of Life Program, currently they have Josue, 2 years old and his mother Karen from Bolivia, who will be getting life-saving heart surgery very soon
  • And other charitable projects that they engage in throughout the year

Community support is very important for the Jubilee Center and YMCA so that they can continue to provide excellent services to Hoboken.

It say’s there also collecting for a “well to built in Uganda”. Let’s expand that and include “a wall built between Jackson and Monroe”. That would really be a public service.

I have been to this auction in prior years and thought it much fun. If you have never been to an auction before, this is a good place to learn as the auctioneer explains the process. The art can be had for less than you would expect.

No one is “plying” anyone with booze at this event. There is wine but there’s also soda. This auction supports 3 great charitable endeavors in Hoboken and is held in the beautiful Trinity Church of All Saints Parish.

Yes, and I would like to add to that, 411. I did a little research on Ross Galleries and they are in the business of charity auctions and seem legit although the prices do seem a little high on some of the prints I happened to look at.

The gallery that held the few actions I attended was called Park West. So again, just wanted to clarify because it is a charity and do not want to spread bad publicity for them. So enjoy, but easy on the vino. 🙂
