This is the most fun art auction in town –
Bidding starts at $3000 and every winner gets a $3000 instant rebate!
Bid on works by well-known local artists and don’t forget, you are rich! The entertainment for this soiree into faux wealth will be provided by “Pretend You Are Rich’s” founding mastermind, J. Haley. He will don the guise of the Fabulous Mr. Auction and remind everyone to pretend they are rich and bid like mad as he auctions the work of 20 amazing local artists. Special guest and co-emcee will be none other than Richard Anthony Guerra and the event will include an aerial dance performance and custom t-shirts by Twin Villain. Everyone will be encouraged to snack on treats from Whole Foods & sip delicious concoctions by Tito’s Vodka as bidding begins at $3000– but the highest bidder gets an instant $3000 rebate!
There is no entry fee to the “Pretend You’re Rich” Art Auction, however, bidding is highly encouraged.
