On January 24, 2008 Canada Eurasia Russia Business Association (CERBA) jointly with Vladislav Tretyak Foundation and CIDA organized its 7th Annual Charity Auction. The event took place at the Baltschug Kempinski Hotel, and attracted more than 160 Russian and Canadian businessmen, civil servants and cultural and social activists. The Auction, hosted by a Hockey Legend and State Duma Deputy Vladislav Tretyak and His Excellency Ralph Lysyshyn, Canadian Ambassador to Russia, gathered over $122,000 for the benefit of the Childrens and Family Institutions, Orphanages and Hospitals in Saratov, Irkutsk and the North.

From its inception, the Charity Auction has been enormously successful, and it has been CERBAs most recognized and celebrated event. The scale of this initiative has grown every year from the 1st Charity Auction in 2002, which raised over $5,000 to this years unprecedented success.

Although the cause was noble and solemn, the night passed in pleasant and cheerful atmosphere of friendship and international cooperation. The official addresses were made by Mr. Lysyshyn and Mr. Tretyak, as well as Nathan Hunt, CERBA Moscow President, and Vera Terekhova of Tretyaks Foundation. The representatives of this years beneficiaries also said a word at the end of the night explaining their specific needs and expressing heartfelt gratitude for the support their received.

CERBA owes tremendous gratitude to sponsors of the event: Aktis-Stroy, White&Case, Ernst&Young, Bombardier, Intercom Holding, VIP National Club Moscow, RUZA, TerraLink, Kinross, and other companies and individuals for their participation and support.
