ARTWALK NY Raises $700K for The Coalition for The Homeless

By Whitewall

November 19, 2015

On Tuesday night, ARTWALK NY held its annual art auction benefit for the Coalition for The Homeless. Alec & Hilaria Baldwin, Richard Gere, Patricia Cronin, and Deborah Kass were honored by the organization for their long time involvement, and were on hand to help raise over $700,000. Held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea and presented by Tiffany & Co., the event included drinks by Peroni and VDKA 6100 and bites donated from places like David Burke Kitchen, Michael’s, The National, Palma, Juice Press, The Odeon, and Tijuana Picnic. During cocktail hour, a silent auction with works by artists Christo, Tracey Emin, Kate Gilmore, Mary Heilmann, Alex Katz, Shantell Martin, Emilio Perez, Kenny Scharf, Swoon, and Dustin Yellin could be bid upon.

During the live auction, the Coalition’s president and CEO Mary Brosnahan announced she had just spoken with Mayor de Blasio to finalize a $3 billion initiative for new housing for the homeless in New York. Riding that good news, Sotheby’s auctioneer Aileen Agopian led a live auction of works by Patricia Cronin, Louise Fishman, Jenny Holzer, Deborah Kass, Glenn Ligon, Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, Kasper Sonne, and Pat Steir.

The Coalition for the Homeless is the nation’s oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless men, women, and children. It is dedicated to the principle that affordable housing, sufficient food, and the chance to work for a living wage are fundamental rights in a civilized society. 100% of proceeds from the evening will benefit the Coalition for the Homeless, whose programs help 3,500 people each day. Homelessness in New York City remains at historic levels, with nearly 60,000 people, including 24,000 children, sleeping in homeless shelters every night.
