Harry Benson, Ron Haviv, Douglas Kirkland, Susan Meiselas, Doug Menuez, Corey Rich, Ryszard Horowitz and David Black are among the photographers who have donated signed prints to the silent auction to be held Friday October 28 as part of the PhotoPlus Bash. At the event, sponsored by Unique Photo and Fujifilm, guests can also purchase raffle tickets to win prizes valued at over $100 apiece. All proceeds from the benefit will be presented to the Red Cross in support of its ongoing relief and rebuilding efforts in Japan.
PhotoPlus describes the event, which will take place at the Highline Stages, as an evening of “photography, friendship and fun.” Music will be provided by DJ Cresce and the band Tyburn Saints, whose album is titled “For the Benefit of Strangers.” (Very fitting for the occasion.) For more information on the event, visit the Bash/Benefit web site.
Tickets are $35 in advance or $50 on site. To register for PhotoPlus Expo & WPPI NYC and purchase tickets, go to the PhotoPlus Expo web site, www.photoplusexpo. (If you’re already registered, you can still purchase tickets here. )
