DC Party Animal ‘Satin Doll’ Auction is Open!

Proceeds from auction to benefit Ready, Willing & Working

Ready, Willing & Working (RWW) announced Monday a public auction for D.C. ‘Party Animal’ Satin Doll, opened at 8:30 p.m. The auction is part of Magic & Miracles at The Mansion, a benefit celebration for RWW. The auction will end 8:30 p.m. December 17, live at The Mansion on O Street, the evening of the event. Bidding begins at $1,500 at www.ebay.com. The D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities valued each piece at $3,200, but many sold originally for far more.

Satin Doll is part of the D.C. ‘Party Animals’ parade which began in April of 2002 and was the largest public art exhibit ever held in the District. Sponsored by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the display consisted of 100 elephants and 100 donkeys that had been customized in uniquely inspired designs by D.C. area artists.

Satin Doll was donated by former Capitol Hill resident, Lisa Saunier, last October in appreciation for the work and community services RWW provides the Capitol Hill business corridor. To see pictures, and read more about Satin Dolls’ journey here.

Ready, Willing, and Working will host Magic & Miracles at the Mansion, on Thursday, December 17, from 7:30p.m. – 9:30p.m., at The Mansion on O Street located at 2020 O Street in Washington, D.C. Individual tickets are available for $125 for an individual and $200 for a couple at http://magicandmiracles2.eventbrite.com
