Exceptional cognacs raise 15,000 euros for a good cause
13 juin 2006

The charity auction of bottles and carafes of exceptional cognacs, organized by the Bnic at the end of cognac week under the hammer of Me Tasset, raised over 15,000 euros for the « Aurore » association which works to finance holidays and sports activities for young people.

More than 200 people came to the sale for which 18 cognac houses had donated exceptional products. The Aurore association, under the presidency of Mme Firino Martell, raised in one evening the equivalent of its annual budget.

Here is the list of prices paid at the auction (some bottles were quite well overpaid because of the charitable nature of the operation).
