WJA Awards for Excellence to Feature Raffle and Silent Auction

The 29th Annual Women’s Jewelry Association Awards for Excellence Gala—which takes place Monday, July 30, at Pier 60 in New York City—will feature more than 25 raffle items and six silent auction offerings. All proceeds raised will benefit the WJA Scholarship Fund.

Raffle tickets will be priced at one for $25, three for $50, and seven for $100, while silent auctions selections will each have a unique starting bid. Included in the auctions: a six-night luxury African safari; a three-night luxury stay in Monte Carlo; an Ivanka Trump New York experience; a Hamptons experience; tickets to the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival; and a Carelle Brooke Leaf pendant.

“We’re excited to feature all of these amazing items in our raffle and silent auction,” said Krista Collins Walters, chair of the WJA Silent Auction Committee, in a statement. “WJA scholarships provide so much support to women seeking education, and the funds we raise at the Awards for Excellence Gala each year are instrumental to keeping the scholarship fund thriving.” 

The cocktail hour, raffle purchases, and silent auction bids start at 6:30 p.m.; dinner and entertainment kicks off at 8 p.m. Tickets to the event are available for purchase online.
