Exploring the Arts (ETA) is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to strengthen the role of the arts in American education. ETA develops programmes which connect private funders, individual artists and cultural institutions to public schools as a way to achieve greater equality of resources and opportunity for youth of all means and backgrounds.
The second annual Susan and Tony Bennett ETA auction starts September 16 at the Charity Buzz Web site. Lots include a pair of tickets to the December 9 Red Piano concert at the Bercy in Paris, along with a Meet And Greet, plus 2 nights accommodations at the Montalembert Hotel on December 8th and 9th. Dates are finalised and can not be changed.
Unlike other offerings, this lot will close early on September 23rd to be part of the live auction. Charity Buzz will close the online bidding mid-day, and then contact the highest bidders by phone to see if they want the company to continue bidding on their behalf at the live auction.
