Park West Gallery donated artwork for the auction and Park West Executive Vice President Stoney Goldstein was the guest auctioneer. 100% of the auction proceeds will go to purchase back-to-school supplies.

“The artwork provided by Park West for the live auction was higher end than the items we typically receive,” said Sylvia Rosenwasser, Director of Development for Children’s Home Society of Florida. “Stoney was a blessing. His high energy and professional manner as an auctioneer, as well as his artistic ability in displaying the art helped kick our fundraising efforts over the top!”

“The combination of generous supporters, fantastic artwork, and an amazing cause like Children’s Home Society made this an exceptional evening” said Mr. Goldstein.  “And I have to admit, the bachelor and bachelorette auction was a lot of fun.  Who knows, maybe one day I’ll get invited to a wedding.”
