TELL's Connoisseurs' Wine Auction Bohemian Rhapsody Uncorked!


Early Bird Fee: ¥20,000
Early Bird Deadline: October 12th, 2018
Regular Fee: ¥25,000
This year's TELL Connoisseur's Auction will take place on Friday, November 2nd from 6:00-10:00 pm at the iconic Happo-En, where you're welcome to come early and stroll through the 17th-century garden. The theme for the night will be "Bohemian Rhapsody". Whether you're a Queen/Freddie Mercury fan or just feeling flamboyantly bohemian, join us for this "spirited" evening of premier wine tasting, live and silent auctions of connoisseur items, a lavish feast, entertainment, and raffles for fabulous prizes—all for a worthy cause.

We'll begin our bohemian journey with a tasting of superb wines, a sumptuous buffet, lively conversation, great music, and the friendly rivalry of our silent auction. After dinner, we'll take the party next door to the "live auction room," where the terrace overlooks the garden. Here, the fantastic selection of connoisseur wines and exclusive items up for bid will be guaranteed to take our friendly rivalry to the next level.

There's no better way to enjoy a fantastic evening, walk away with unparalleled connoisseur items, and help raise money for TELL, an NPO that has championed mental health and well-being for Japan's international community for over 45 years!

All around the world millions of women and men suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their lifetime, including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder. (~The National Eating Disorder Association)

Bess O'Brien directs All of Me, a feature length documentary film focused on the lives of women, girls and some boys who are caught in the downward spiral of eating disorders and their struggle to regain a sense of self-compassion and healing. The film will focus on body image, a lack of connection with one's physical and emotional being and the need to delve deep within one's self to find the systemic reasons that triggered this disease.
