On February 23rd Bailey House, the landmark AIDS housing agency, will hold it’s 23rd Annual Auction and Party.    The Auction and Party attracts over 700 affluent, philanthropic New York trendsetters actively bidding on exclusive home design, art and photography and one-of-kind adventures.  

Hosted for many years by Tim Gunn and Simon Doonan, this year finds renown fashion designer Carmen Marc Valvo joining the engaging Sherri Shepherd of The View for what is sure to continue a tradition of combining hundreds of handsome partygoers with one of the best Auction experiences in town. 

Among the featured auction items this year are  a Costa Rica getaway at the luxurious  Gaia Hotel & Reserve  and a  date with the charismatic Bravo powerhouse Andy Cohen where you can discuss everything from politics to housewives.  As always photography will be a highlight with images from Robert Mapplethorpe, Herb Ritts and William Wegman.  There is something for everyone to bid on—and at every price.   This year’s selection of home décor includes Donna Karan, Restoration Hardware, Steuben Glass and many more.  You can even win opening day box seats to the Yankees.

Tickets are priced for everyone from $250 to $5,000.  The Armory will be a glow with Tiffany’s holiday interior expert, Geoff Howell, taking over this year’s event design.

Whether you are joining us for the first time or coming back to experience this vibrant and unusual New York benefit, be there with us as we support Bailey House and their remarkable efforts on behalf of homeless New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. “This is always a glam party, sexy and star-studded.  It’s also a good deed in a very naughty, very scary world.” – Liz Smith NY Post.
