Art, design and fashion auction raising money for Greece


Most of the items being sold are inspired by Greek themes or celebrate this year’s 200th anniversary of Greek independence.

The work being sold includes pieces by Robert McCabe, Stephen Antonakos, George Negroponte and Tod Papageorge (Danziger Gallery), jewelry by Lalaounis and Zolotas, Hermes’ 1821 anniversary scarf, a bag by Callista Crafts and much more.

Bidders can also vie for holiday packages, spirits and foods.

THI is a nonprofit founded in 2012 to mobilize the diaspora and  the world’s philhellenes in support of a sustainable economic recovery for the Greek people.

Last year’s gala raised more than $1.6 million to this end, THI said.

This year’s gala will honor Johnson & Johnson Chairman and Chief Executive Alex Gorsky will be honored.
