The Joyce Theater is teeming with activity right now with an exciting fall/winter season full of stellar performances, exhilarating presentations and artist programs at Joyce SoHo, educational events, master classes, and bustle at DANY Studios. And, in the midst of all this activity, another important and exciting event is taking place; we’re delighted to invite you to join us in celebrating and supporting Joyce SoHo and DANY Studios – two vital resources for dance at the Joyce SoHo Benefit Auction! This is a silent and live auction event that we hold each year at 155 Mercer Street, where guests enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, raffle prizes, and a phenomenal dance performance.
This year, we are previewing a few of the items that are up for bid with an ONLINE AUCTION. Peruse the growing list of extraordinary offerings and place bids on anything that interest you. You can also purchase tickets to the live event on Monday, November 15, donate an item to the auction (we’re always looking for new ideas!), submit absentee bids that can be carried over to the live event, or just get a head start on those holiday shopping lists!
In addition to all of this, you will have the chance to walk away with a prize without placing a single bid! (Although, we do hope you’ll find something that piques your interest to bid on). All you have to do is click the “Refer A Friend” button on the auction homepage to spread the word about this important fundraising event to all your friends. The person listed as the Top Referrer when the online portion of the auction closes on will be awarded FIVE free raffle tickets. He or she will then be entered in our grand drawing with the chance to win jewelry, theater tickets, a luxury vacation, or one of the other great prizes!
The Joyce SoHo Benefit Auction
Monday, November 15, 2010 at 6:30pm
Joyce SoHo, 155 Mercer Street, New York, NY 10012
Proceeds from the Benefit Auction will support programs and services at Joyce SoHo and DANY Studios.
Joyce SoHo was created in 1996 when The Joyce Theater Foundation acquired 155 Mercer Street. Thanks to generous funders, The Joyce renovated and expanded the facility to ensure dance artists a well-maintained and affordable space to develop and perform their work. Now a thriving center for dance open year-round, Joyce SoHo nurtures hundreds of dance artists and draws diverse audiences to downtown New York. The newly-opened Dance Art New York (DANY) Studios, located at 305 West 38th Street, has joined Joyce SoHo in serving the needs of independent choreographers, not-for-profit dance companies and the dance/theater communities by providing nine affordable studios appropriate for rehearsals, auditions, classes, workshops and more.
For more information about the auction, please contact Maureen Cavanaugh Neufeld at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 646-467-8556.
We look forward to seeing you at the Joyce Soho Benefit Auction!
