Los Angeles, CA -- A Roberto Cavalli handbag, Verizon Blackberry Storm, and a 2010 Lexus Hybrid are just a few of the items available for auction to benefit Jenesse Center. Items will be up for auction with starting bids at just a fraction of the item's retail value. New items are added daily to the online auction. All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the women and children of the Jenesse Center, a non profit charity that provides a holistic, comprehensive program, to nurture families victimized by domestic violence, back to a place of mental, financial, physical and emotional well being.
The Jenesse online auction provides a unique opportunity for participants to place bids online at www.jenesse.cmarket.com. The exciting auction offers something for everyone including a chance to bid on two VIP tickets to a season nine show (next season) of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. American patriots can bid on autographed photos and paraphernalia by the 44th President of the United States, President Barack Obama. Sports lovers can bid on once in a lifetime opportunities including a chance to actually play in a pick up game with two friends and NBA All Star Shaquille O'Neal or two tickets to a Phoenix Suns game with a meet and greet afterwards.
Fashionistas will find incredible bargains on designer accessories including an Audemars Piguet Lady's Royal Oak Quartz Watch, which features a stainless steel case, bezel set with 32 diamonds (retail value $9,200). Music lovers can bid to win tickets to see Jennifer Hudson and Robin Thicke live in concert at the Palms hotel in Las Vegas (hotel and airfare included). The winner of the concert will meet and greet the stars after the show. Other online bidders get first dibs at the fabulous items up for bid; any auction items not bid on in the online auction go to the silent or live auctions being held during Jenesse's signature annual fundraiser, the Silver Rose Gala and Auction, hosted by Academy Award winning actress Halle Berry, held on Sunday, April 19th at Noon at the Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows. Tickets for the Silver Rose Gala and Auction are available for purchase at www.jenesse.org or by calling (323) 299-9496.
Halle Berry, chair of the Jenesse Silver Rose Weekend, is resolute on the importance of her personal commitment to the Jenesse Center. She said, "The Silver Rose Weekend will raise much needed funds to help families victimized by domestic violence. I donate my time and resources to Jenesse Center, because I strongly believe in this agency and have seen first hand the difference they make in the lives of women and children in their community."
