May 20, 2020 – Miami, Florida – It was “going once, going twice, sold” to virtual guests with hearts of gold who “attended” The Auction, Uncork & Unwind event held recently to benefit Camillus House, a nonprofit organization at the forefront of providing a comprehensive system of care to Miami-Dade County’s homeless population since 1960.

According to Camillus Chairman Paul Lowenthal, “This success is a tribute to the generosity of our participants and sponsors who stepped up and stood by Camillus House even after this much anticipated event was transitioned into an online experience due to COVID-19.  Special thanks  to our presenting sponsor Bank of America and host sponsor American Airlines. The funds help to offset the dramatic increase in expenses incurred while caring for those most vulnerable to COVID-19, our homeless population.” He added, “Thank you to our donors, sponsors and staff for making such a positive impact on the lives of those in need.”

The online evening featured Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry, NBC’s The Voice Preston Howell, and renowned auctioneer Jason Alpert. A richly diverse auction showcased the very best in wine, travel, and lifestyle luxury. 

This much needed funding ensures that homeless individuals, families and youth will continue to have a safe place to sleep, nourishing meals and hope for their future.  For additional information on The Auction or upcoming events, please contact Camillus House Director of Special Events Lori Lynch at [email protected]
