Phillips and poverty-fighting organization Robin Hood are proud to jointly announce Auction4NYC, an online-only charity sale that will be open for bidding on 1st May, closing in conjunction with Robin Hood’s virtual benefit on 11th May. The auction will benefit Robin Hood’s COVID-19 relief efforts and support frontline non-profits in New York City through food, housing, job security, education, health, and cash assistance programs to benefit vulnerable New Yorkers. Auction4NYC will feature artworks generously donated by leading contemporary artists, galleries, and collectors who have each demonstrated their unwavering commitment to helping New York in this time of need.
“Robin Hood has been fighting poverty in New York City for more than three decades so we’re no strangers to helping in a crisis, but this pandemic has taken more lives than 9/11 and Superstorm Sandy combined,”
said Robin Hood’s Founder, Paul Tudor Jones.
“We realize that even once we get past the current medical emergency, we will be left with its aftermath, which will hit New York’s poorest and most vulnerable hardest of all. Robin Hood is in this fight for the long haul and now more than ever, we must not only act generously but creatively. We are grateful to partner with Phillips and the New York art world to do just that. It’s all hands on deck as we rebuild our great city.”
