Several years ago, the Evangelical church in Stuttgart was collecting donations to fund the renovations to their church. We loved the idea of helping and decided to organize a public auction whose proceeds we would donate to the church.
Since then, we regularly hold auctions to benefit charitable organizations and even recruit celebrity patrons to help us. Such patrons help promote the success of the auctions and even participate as guest-auctioneers. The best example of such support was the former Prime Minister Lothar Späth who used his unique charm and spirit to draw as many bids as possible out of our generous audience.
Trough the Eppli & Hopf Foundation, a foundation under civil law, we have created a focused outlet for our charitable work. It is particularly important to us to support people who find themselves in need due to an accident, illness or misfortune.
In every charity auction we conduct, five percent of the net proceeds are donated to the Eppli & Hopf Foundation. If you are interested in selling your items for a good cause, our auctions are the perfect platform to do so. Contact us!
Benefit auctions have a long tradition at Eppli. Prominent personalities, who supported the good cause as patrons and partly even swung their own hammer, made a significant contribution to the success.
