Plzeň, August 20, 2012 – Popular musicians will join the traditional benefit at Pilsner Fest this year. Some bands playing at this year’s celebration of Pilsen beers have decided to auction off items from their music equipment and wardrobe, posters and recordings. These artefacts will be on the block from August 27th to September 1st at the auction site Aukro.cz, with the profits supporting “Centre Umbrella.”
Those who bid may win valuable pieces such as guitars belonging to Jiří Schmitzer and Michal Pavlíček, drumsticks, a t-shirt and CD from David Koller, a brand wardrobe from the band “Vypsaná Fixa” and many other things from Gipsy.cz, Mňága and Žďorp, Tatabojs and Janek Ledecký.
“During this unique Pilsner Fest auction, you have a chance to have a good time, put your hands on a valuable trophy and at the same time support a good cause,” said Vladimír Jurina from Plzeňský Prazdroj.
The auction will start on Saturday, August 27, at 5:00 pm, when all the artefacts will be displayed at www.aukro.cz, and will close on Saturday, September 1, at 5:00 pm. You can place your bets until the very closing moment.
This is an exclusive internet auction accessible from the www.aukro.cz main page. You do not have to be registered at Aukro.cz to participate in the auction. It is possible to join the auction from your computer, tablet, or smart phone. That is a big advantage for Pilsner Fest visitors especially, since the whole area of the event will have Wi-Fi coverage, therefore making it possible for them to place bids until the very last second.
The organisers of the auction will give the cheque with the total profit from the auction to the director of “Centre Umbrella,” PhD. Alena Kábrtová on Saturday, September 1, around 7:00 pm on the Pilsner Fest’s main stage.
