The annual Ten Yad Auction, renowned in the Jewish world as a leader in Chinese Auctions, will take place this Sunday, November 13, at the Razag Ballroom in Crown Heights.
The event attracts thousands of women from throughout the Tri-State area, with thousands more purchasing tickets via their website and over the phone, for prizes in categories such as electronics, furniture, jewelry, shopping, vacations and more.
Ten Yad’s auction committee, pioneers in the now widely popular style of fundraising, constantly look for ways to bring new and exciting changes each year.
This year’s auction will not disappoint, as participants will enjoy a rousing new musical by producer Robin Garbose of Los Angeles, starring actress Judy Winegard.
The exclusive performance, titled “The Hasty Chuppah,” will “dazzle you with phenomenal singing and acting versatility, evoking both tears and laughter,” say the Ten Yad staff.
The evening’s entertainment will end off with the incomparable popular singer Chanale.
An exciting new feature debuting at this year’s event is a Showcase Expo, with over 20 industry-leading retail booths on display for attendees, as they stroll through a lavishly decorated “designer boulevard.”
Designed by famed event planner Tammy Polatsek of Aristocratic Design, the showcase will give participants the thrill of browsing through rooms of exhilarating displays of elegantly presented merchandise from the most exclusive stores in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
“It will be extremely different from what you’ve seen until now,” Polatsek told COLlive.com on Friday. “It will have a ‘wedding’ feel to it. I can tell you that it already looks gorgeous.”
Beginning with a captivating display of stunning bridal gowns, the promenade will pass by displays featuring the most exquisite top-of-the-line jewelry, linen sets, imported and domestic furniture, dazzling sterling silver and fine china, luxurious sheitels and furs, stunning chandeliers and wall units, stylish clothing, artistic framing, electronics, and housewares.
