I love Fairway Market, located in an old wharf building in Red Hook. Coffee roasted on premises, artisanal cheeses and specialty imports, an outdoor café and a fantastic waterfront view…it's great!
2012 SEGD Auction for Education
Saturday, June 9
Sponsored by Signalex, Inc. The SEGD Auction for Education is one of the most festive and exciting components of the SEGD Conference, combining the fun of a live auction and raffle, a great opportunity to relax and network with fellow conference-goers, and the chance to benefit SEGD’s educational initiatives.
The auction and raffle allow members and friends of SEGD to support the organization’s educational goals by bidding on coveted items such as original artwork, memorabilia, high-tech gadgets, and more. Among other initiatives, the funds from the auction and raffle bring students who have won SEGD Global Design Awards to the conference. It’s a rare opportunity for students to experience the professional world of EGD, making valuable connections and rubbing shoulders with their future colleagues.
In New York, the Auction for Education will be part of the conference’s gala evening finale at the gorgeous Skylight West, one of New York’s most sought-after event venues. Skylight West commands a breathtaking view of the Empire State Building, the entire Manhattan skyline, and the Hudson River. We’ll toast a great conference while taking in the fabulous view at sunset!
Many thanks to Bonhams New York for allowing Karl Green to act as auctioneer for the SEGD Auction for Education.
