Guests will have the exceptional opportunity to bid on a selection of paintings, prints and photographs by several prominent local artists, including Patricia Brentano, Ricardo Roig and Fran Azzara. Tickets to concerts, sporting events, and TV talks shows will round out the silent auction prizes, including premium seating for Mets and Giants games;  tickets to “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” “Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” or “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” as well as a deep sea fishing excursion and a cocktail cruise on New York harbor.
