Christie’s Annual Green Auction Opens Online
Will Ragozzino

Today marks the launch of Christie’s Third Annual Green Auction: “Bid to Save the Earth.” The auction—open online through charitybuzz until April 19th—will benefit water-conservation projects at four prominent environmental nonprofits: Oceana, Conservation International, the Central Park Conservancy and the Natural Resources Defense Council. The worthy cause notwithstanding, there are plenty of reasons to bid: The lots include elite stays at five-star resorts in Thailand, Dubai and Anguilla; a private afternoon of shopping at Barney’s with Simon Doonan; courtside seats at the U.S. Open Tennis Championship; and VIP access to performances by James Taylor, Lady Antebellum and Alison Krauss. March 29–April 19; bidtosavetheearth.charitybuzz.com.
