A contemporary art auction spearheaded by U2 frontman Bono and British artist Damien Hirst raised more than $42 million for programs battling HIV and AIDS. The (Red) Auction, named for Bono’s fundraising effort battling AIDS in Africa, offered up 83 works by artists including Hirst, Jasper Johns, Jeff Koons, Banksy, Tracey Emin, Willem De Kooning and Julian Schnabel. Proceeds from the auction are earmarked for the United Nations Global Fund and its programs against HIV, AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Bono dubbed the night “historic” and praised those involved as “heroes”.

Holding an art auction event is an increasingly popular and successful way for organizations and charities to raise funds and for bidders to get quality art at reasonable prices. Auction events are fun, exciting and educational and are great places to learn about art and often meet world-famous artists. A live auction will entertain your guests making your event and your cause more memorable. Benefit Auctions promote awareness of the organization and increase donations through excitement and camaraderie. Annual events can be especially beneficial as guests are more likely not only to return in the following years but promote the event and encourage friends and business acquaintances to attend.

Partnering your organization with a professional and experienced art auction company is an excellent way to maximize revenue for your cause while providing world-class entertainment.
