20th Annual TELL Connoisseurs’ Auction Set for Tuesday, November 24
TOKYO, November 9, 2014 – TELL, a not-for-profit organization that has provided mental health support and counseling services to Japan's international community for over 40 years, will host its 20th Annual Connoisseurs’ Auction at the ANA InterContinental Tokyo on Tuesday, November 24.
The Connoisseurs’ Auction, TELL’s major annual charity fundraiser, is recognized as Tokyo’s premier event for wine connoisseurs, and attracts some 300 distinguished guests who bid on over 50 lots of premium wine, luxurious accommodation in Hawaii, Napa Valley, Thailand, Hokkaido and Tokyo, and exceptional goods and services from a wide range of donors, in both a live auction and a silent auction. The event will also feature extensive tastings of fine wines from some of Tokyo’s top wine distributors.
“Two years ago, TELL marked our 40th anniversary as the leading provider of mental health services to the international community in Japan,” said Craig Saphin, Chair of TELL’s board of directors. “While we look back with pride on our achievements, our focus is on the future: we are strongly committed to extending our Lifeline service to provide round-the-clock coverage throughout Japan.
“TELL has a long list of supporters – individuals, corporations and professional organizations – without whom we would be unable to provide the breadth of services we do, and we are very grateful for the continued support of our friends as we work to achieve our strategic objectives.”
