Our next lot is…
The Canada Eurasia Russia Business Association (CERBA) held a traditional annual charity auction together with Vladislav Tretyak’s International Sports Academy and the Canadian Agency for International Development. The event took part on the 4th of February at restaurant Yar and attracted many hockey fans.
The first such auction was held in 2002, when the auction raised $5,000 The event’s popularity and money-making potential has snowballed: last year over $126,000 was raised. But the recent auction almost doubled that, raising $212,000. The auction was marked by highly valuable items, like an exclusive doll called Tanyusha by Vladislav Tretyak, a diamond golden ring commemorating the Russian ice-hockey team winning World Hockey Championship 2009, autographed hockey jerseys and dinner with the Canadian Ambassador and many others.
All lots were sold at record speed. The guests were welcomed to a lavishly-laid table and were given an autograph-session with Vladislav Tretyak.
