The 25th Annual Cartoons & Cocktails Auction, the largest auction of editorial cartoons in the United States, will be held on November 15, 2012, from 6 PM to 9 PM in the ballroom of the National Press Club in Washington, DC.  This will be your chance to bid on and buy original artwork while benefitting two very worthy non-profit organizations: Cartoonists Rights Network International and Young D.C., a local organization that teaches teens journalism skills. 

The price of admission is $75.  A ticket to the event provides access to a silent auction of over a hundred original strip and editorial cartoons, and a very entertaining live auction of over another two dozen cartoons.  Two free drink tickets at the cash bar, a bid paddle and access to an impressive food display, are also included in the price of admission.  Tickets and more information are available at the Cartoons & Cocktails Website.  

The National Press Club is located at 529 14th Street NW, 13th Floor, Washington, DC 20045.  For those taking the Metro, the National Press Club is a short walk from Metro Center.   For more detailed directions to the National Press Club, click on Press Club directions

Whether you're a casual fan or a serious collector, you will find a work of art that you can afford to buy and can't afford to live without.  We hope you'll support free speech by joining us and all our sponsors including (among others) The Washington Examiner, the Bureau of National Affairs, and Politico.com at this fun event.
