There is literally no end to the number of ways in which you can spend money on dining, drinking and entertainment in Tokyo, but if you're going to be doing it anyway, why not make sure it's for a good cause? On Friday, November 22 TELL (Tokyo English Life Line) will hold its annual Connoisseurs' Auction, attracting some 300 distinguished guests who bid on over 50 lots of premium wine, extravagant getaways, and exceptional goods and services in both a live auction and a silent auction.

Recognized as Tokyo’s premier event for wine connoisseurs, the event will include a lavish menu of foods and many fine wines from all over the world with thanks to some Tokyo’s best caterers and wine distributors. Throughout the evening, there will also be live musical performances to help get people in the mood for the main event.

The highlight of the Connoisseurs’ Auction is the live auction. Be it boutique, unique, antique or gigantic, guests will have over 40 lots of select wine, extravagant getaways and exceptional offers to choose from. The silent auction will have something for everyone, and with Christmas just around the corner, it is a great chance to pick up something special, such as a night out on the town, hotel accommodations, fine wines, home wares or art for the home or office.

Proceeds will benefit TELL, a non-profit organization that has provided much-needed services and community outreach programs to the international and Japanese communities for almost 40 years. These include free and anonymous telephone support through its Life Line, professional face-to-face counseling with TELL Counseling Center, and the TELL Children & Families program. TELL is an accredited non-profit organization, a member of the Federation of Inochi No Denwa, an affiliatae of Lifeline International, and accredited by the Samaritan Institute. Funds raised at the event will help ensure that TELL continues to be able to provide these invaluable services to our community.
