Buddy Bear Auction for Children's Aid

Auction on 15 November in Berlin

Under the patronage of Dame Marianne von Weizsäcker the big Buddy Bear auction took place on Tuesday, 15 November 2016, at the "Mercedes-Welt" at Salzufer in Berlin. Julia Theurkauf was the auctioneer that night.

Renowned artists like Elvira Bach, Kani Alavi, Frank Rödel, and Sabeth Holland as well as celebrities like Dennenesch Zoudé, Zohre Esmaeli, and Nina Ruge had taken up the paintbrush for the good cause and designed Buddy Bears, which will be sold at the auction. Other bears have been signed by rocklegends such as Karat, City and the band Puhdys.

The proceeds of the 2m and 1 m tall unique items and the minatures of 33 cm benefited 100 percent organisations for children in need, such as UNICEF, SOS-Kinderdorf, DKJS, Bürgerstiftung Berlin, Menschen helfen!, Buddy Bear Help, Berliner helfen, and Stiftung Fairchance. All costs of the event were taken over by sponsors or Buddy Bär Berlin GmbH.

Proceeds of 107.250€ have been generated at the auction.

We would like to thank all bidders as well as our partners Mercedes-Benz, Weberbank and Haberling.
