Please click here for the press release!
CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is being established at numerous companies. This year, during the CIO VIP Dinner (on the 12th of November) an auction - CharITy - will be held, led by Jan Wolter van den Berg. CIOs and partners have donated various lots for the auction, the proceeds of which will go to several carefully selected institutions/charities. We are aiming for sky-high bids!
Jan Wolter van den Berg
Jan Wolter van den Berg is former Auctioneer and Head of Valuations of Sotheby's.
He gained his Master at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen. For 10,5 years he worked for Sotheby's Amsterdam and last as Head of Valuations and Autcioneer at Sotheby's. Since 2009 he is established as an independent appraiser for art and antiques. As auctioneer, Jan Wolter has led several auctions for the good cause, like the Kidsright fundraising Gala in Nijmegen, the auction during the dance event Sensation Innerspace. At this event €400.000,- was gained for dance4life, the organisation that inspires young people to get in action against Aids and HIV.
The CharITy auction at the CIO VIP Diner of 2011 was a tremendous success, allowing the foundation to disburse € 29.200 to various causes. Since CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) has become an increasingly important issue at many companies, this year we aim to surpass this achievement with an even bigger fundraiser!
Several CIOs and partners contribute for the auction, which are detailed in this brochure. And just like other years, we intend to work together to make sure the bids are as high as possible!
