Bidding for Blue Chip Legacy and Dreams

For two years now, the Ateneo Alumni Association (AAA) has been at the forefront of raising funds for various social involvement concerns through the Ateneo Art Auction. The first auction in 2008 featured works from the masters such as Amorsolo, Malang and Anita Magsaysay-Ho to name a few and several from the most sought after contemporary artists like MM Yu and Bembol dela Cruz. The proceeds helped build several houses for the AAA GK Community in Payatas. In 2009, around 40 select pieces from almost 50 established (such as Ang Kiukok, Arturo Luz and Lao Lianben) and emerging artists (such as Ronald Ventura and Lynyrd Paras) were given to the highest bidders during the live auction. This allowed the Association to donate 1.2 million pesos to the Ateneo Scholarship Fund.

This year, we hope to raise more scholarship funds for deserving but financially disadvantaged students of the Ateneo de Manila University Loyola School of Humanities. The Auction will be held on Saturday, 2nd of October 2010 at the Finale Art File located at La Fuerza Compound, 2241 Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati City, with a preview starting Thursday 30th of September 2010.

We believe that this is an excellent opportunity to partner with us for a noble cause—to enable academically gifted but financially disadvantaged students to become future leaders in their respective fields.

Let the bidding begin!
