Celebrity-signed martini glasses to be auctioned Nov. 1 to benefit Florida film festival, charities On Monday evening, Nov. 1, 2010, Auctions Neapolitan will conduct a 31-lot charity sale of uniquely artist-decorated martini glasses, each a reflection of an A-list celebrity or athlete.
(Sex and the City), Sue Monk Kidd (The Secret Life of Bees) and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, whose glass features two “bunnies” alongside a pipe-smoking “Hef,” with the Playboy logo on the base.
Among the many other celebrities who autographed their custom-designed glasses are: designers Manolo Blahnik and Melania Trump; hair stylist to the stars Jose Eber, “Mrs. America” Andrea Robertson, Patricia Field (Mrs. Field’s Cookies), and chocolatier and pastry chef extraordinaire Norman Love.
Throughout the month of October, the martini glasses will be on display at various locations around Naples, including Sak’s Fifth Avenue and the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts. “Everyone loves them,” said Auctions Neapolitan’s owner, Kathleen Pica. “They’re so unusual, and of course, their sale will help fund causes that are very dear to our community here in Naples. We’re very proud of our boutique film festival, which is an important showcase for regional filmmakers, and we strongly support the efforts of The Education Foundation and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, which has been instrumental in saving the lives of so many animals affected by the devastating oil spill. We hope to have an international turnout of bidders through LiveAuctioneers.com, as that will help to make this auction a great success.”
For additional information on any item in the auction, call Kathleen Pica at Auctions Neapolitan, 239-262-7333, or e-mail sales@auctionsN.com.
