This past Friday, The Digital Arts Experience hosted its first annual, “Happy Helping-Days Holiday Soirée & Silent Auction.” It was a wonderful evening, chock full of delicious food provided by ShopRite and drinks from Tony Russo via Aries Wine & Liquor. Many friends, family, and newcomers to the boastful 8,000 sq. foot facility in the heart of downtown White Plains trickled through the doors for a good cause.
Attendees were greeted at the front and given a “swag bag”, containing all of the necessary materials needed to participate in the auction. After being welcomed in, participants were given the chance to pose next to The DAE logo for a fancy photo opportunity. Upon entering the facility, everyone was serenaded on keyboard by pianist Rick Prokop of the Music Conservatory, who played a variety of Beatles songs, Christmas songs, and other mood-setters.
Throughout the course of the evening, The DAE managed to raise few Washingtons for March of Dimes
, 911 FUND
and The Music Conservatory of Westchester
. Among the many items up for bid were Boutique pillows courtesy of Pillow Penchant, a trip for 10 to the Blues Jean Bar of Greenwich, as well as a Gift basket courtesy of Famous Westchester Mom-Blogger Dagmar Bleasdale.
On top of all that, Huffington Post Pop-culture-ist Jon Chattman conducted the live auction portion of our evening to the tune of jolly laughter from all in attendance.
The Digital Arts Experience would like to thank all those who donated their items, time, money, smiles, and support to these wonderful organizations.
