Online Auction - A Treasure Hunt!

We are excited to share with you two new aspects to our #KolAmiStrongerTogether Virtual Gala for this year: the Treasure Hunt and Maskquerade Contest - new ways to participate as we aim for 100% congregational participation this year!
The Treasure Hunt will open for bidding on Monday,  June 1, one week in advance of our gala. In the meantime, you can donate something for others to bid on!
  • Make a donation of jewelry, or another high-end item that once brought you joy, but you're no longer using!
  • Consider donating a piece of your own creation or artwork. You might be a jeweler, a ceramist, a photographer, a painter, a sketcher, a sculptor who would like to donate a piece of your creativity.
  • Look at your collections for an item that would enjoy a new home. You might have coins or signed memorabilia, high-end art or low number lithographs that another collector would appreciate adding to their collection.
  • Consider donating a gift certificate to a local business!
Our goal is to secure at least 50 donated items! We already have 30 and counting, but donating something is an incredible way to get involved and support Kol Ami without spending a dime! Click here to complete a donation form. If you would rather speak with someone, call congregant Jake Perlman at 914.588.2394, and he will connect you with a congregant-member of the online auction team to assist you.
As we know, current health regulations suggest we will need to wear masks outside our homes for the foreseeable future. So let’s show our creativity and individuality! SUBMIT A PHOTO wearing a creative mask, and we'll all vote for the best ones! Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 winners, and voting will begin June 1 when the Treasure Hunt online auction goes live. All entries are required to comply with current guidelines for wearable masks, and any photo received by May 30 can be entered into the contest! Winners will be announced during the live virtual gala on June 8.
Submit your MASKquerade entry by sending a photo to

We all look forward to celebrating together with 100%-community participation and seeing what treasures emerge for our online auction. We are all in it together and now more than ever our congregation is counting on your support. We are #KolAmiStrongerTogether!
