One of the most exclusive charity events — the Ten Yad Hachnosos Kallah Chinese Auction — is back this year with its magnificent, ground-breaking prize offerings and powerful performances by three of the most well-known names in Jewish entertainment: recording artists Kineret, Chanale, and Rivkah Krinsky.
Throughout the auction program, Kineret, Chanale, and Rivkah will wow the audience with selections from their most popular recording hits. The program will begin at 8:30pm.
Kineret has been described as being “blessed with a voice of incredible range and an abundance of charisma, mesmerizing audiences worldwide with the sheer magnitude of her talent.” Chanale’s “melodic and moving songs open the hearts and touch the spirits of women everywhere, inspiring all-female audiences in places as far as China, Alaska and Israel.” And Australian Rivkah Krinsky, a fresh face on the Jewish music scene, captures her all-women audiences with her powerful voice and soulful tunes.
The gala event will be held on Sunday, November 8, at the beautiful Razag Ballroom at 739 East New York (between Albany & Troy Aves.) in Crown Heights. The auction viewing, bidding, and light buffet will take place from 5:00-8:30pm, with the program, entertainment and auction drawing beginning, G-d willing, at 8:30pm. Convenient bus service will be offered to and from Boro Park and Flatbush (call 718-756-1482 for bus info). Valet parking will also be provided.
The Grand Prize at this year’s auction is a whopping $25,000 in cash, with an affordable ticket price of only $50.00. Topping the list of close to 100 prizes are a $12,000 diamond necklace, a $12,000 gift certificate for gorgeous dining room furniture, a top name bone china tablesetting-for-24, and a 2-year lease on a 2010 minivan or sedan, in addition to an array of lavish prizes including a complete collection of sterling silver Judaica, a luxurious living room set, state-of-the-art laptop and home computers, a complete boy’s or girl’s bedroom set, trips to Israel and Florida, and custom sheitels from Shevy and other top names in the business.
Always on the cutting edge of auction innovation, Ten Yad first instituted the “choose your own” prize system a few years back with winners able to choose the exact style, color and design of the prize they win, and a “no restrictions” policy on vacation packages.
Ten Yad Hachnosas Kallah has been providing assistance to needy kallahs for over 25 years, helping orphans and young brides in dire circumstances with the overwhelming expenses of a Jewish marriage and setting up a new home.
The proceeds of the auction are used exclusively to provide the basics of a Jewish home (two sets of dishes, flatware, pots and pans, linens, towels, trousseau items, and a beautifully styled sheitel) and wedding needs (flowers, a beautiful gown, and money toward the band).
Ten Yad is known for the dignity with which it helps kallahs, giving inconspicuously and graciously, so that no one, not the kallah nor her friends, have any idea that the kallah is a recipient of tzedakah. Contributors have the opportunity not only to fulfill the mitzvah of hachnosas kallah, but to do it b’hiddur, by giving matan b’seter (giving charity “in secret”).
Join Ten Yad for the charity event of the year and the privilege of participating not only in the establishment of Jewish homes but the perpetuation of future generations amongst our people.
