HOW TO BID

1. You need to register as a bidder by sending an email to info@nyartists.org with the subject header “Silent Auction Bidder.” Include in the body of the email: your full name, address, and a phone number to reach you in case we have a question about your bid.
2. We will send a link to the Silent Auction bidders who sign up. You may share the link with others, but they must still register as a bidder before we can accept their bids. We also link from the NY Artists Unlimited home page to the Silent Auction page.
3. You can email a bid to us at info@nyartists.org and please include the Lot # and Item Name in your subject header. If yours is the high bid of the day, it will be posted with your initials as “high bidder.”
4. The daily bids will be posted as we receive them throughout the day, with a minimum of once every hour. Just remember that we cannot be online all the time during the day, and the first update of the day is 9:00 am and the last is 9:00 pm, so some bids will be delayed in getting posted. You can see if your bid was accepted and if your initials are listed as the “highest bidder.”

You are also cordially invited to the festival July 20-August 9. Contact www.Theatermania.com or 212-242-6036.

Rags ‘n Riches benefit ’09 Silent Auction

Posted in Uncategorized on July 13, 2009 by nyartistsunlimited

In conjunction with International CringeFest ‘09 and the Rags ‘n Riches benefit, this year we are conducting a silent auction to support our outreach work throughout the rest of the year.  Bidding begins online on Monday, July 6, and continues through the benefit on Friday, July 24.

Since this is a fundraising event, although the proposed ending is at the benefit, we reserve the right to continue the bidding if (1) the item generates special interest or (2) it does not generate enough immediate interest.  For those items, bidding will continue for another week and will be finalized on Friday, July 31.

We’re very excited about our auction items and we once again extend a warm thank you to everyone who donated to this event, as well as to those participating.  Let the bidding begin!

Posted in Uncategorized on July 7, 2009 by nyartistsunlimited
Start spreading the news! NY Artists Unlimited is a 25 year old non-profit organization that provides theatre and art to under-served audiences.  This summer, NY Artists Unlimited is proud to present International CringeFest ’09. From July 20th to August 9th, New Yorkers and distinguished tourists will get the chance to see REALLY GOOD & HILARIOUS works that are irreverent, politically incorrect, naughty, and utterly zany.

For one ticket, you see 4-5 works arranged in theme evenings: Dames at Sea, Is That a Spear in Your Pocket?, Your Money or Your Art, Children & (Other) Sharp Objects, Sex Encounters of the Absurd Kind, & late-night Saturday: Go Genital into That Good Night, including Dragness of God & the Naked Holy Ghost (yes, naked) and Grampa Hitler & the Li’l Red Ridin’ Hood (musical).
