2017 Commemorative Magnums

Once again, we are offering a magnum that perfectly marries art and wine—and that benefits the children and families served by our nonprofit partners.
This year the art featured on the label is Passages #14 by Kavin Buck. The painting is bold and bright with vivid, engaging imagery. Although the image is abstract, it calls to mind the quiet days of July, when the sky is endlessly blue, a breeze ruffles the trees, and the days are long.


Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Party

It’s back! The auctiongoer’s perennial favorite, the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream extravaganza is here again!

With this item, you win an ice cream party for up to 50 people. You choose four of Ben & Jerry’s amazing flavors, and New Avenues for Youth will shuttle ice cream cups and cones and all the toppings to your office or home—or you can hold a party in one of their two shops. Birthday party, anniversary, office picnic, family reunion—you name it, a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream party is a sure hit.
