Canadian Means are Sold out
The Canada Eurasia Russia Business Association (CERBA) together with Vladislav Tretyak’s International Sports Academy and the Canadian Agency for International Development held a charity auction at the Moscow restaurant “Yar.”

The first such auction was held in 2002. Since then, when the auction raised $5,000, its popularity and money-making potential has snowballed: last year about $122,000 was raised. The money will be used on charitable purposes in hospitals, boarding schools, homes for the elderly in Saratov, Tver, Irkutsk, Moscow and other cities and regions of Russia, commented the organizers.

The recent auction was marked by high-quality items such as a ring of white gold with diamonds made by “Smolensk Diamonds” which was previously presented to world champion Russian hockey players, and originally valued at $9,000. This ‘Champion Ring;’ was sold for $13,000. There was also a picture by artist Sergey Prisek in “Autumn Motive,” valued at $6,500. There was a hockey player’s tee-shirt adorned with the Russian Hockey National team-members’ autographs, a tee-shirt of legendary Canadian hockey player Gordon Howe, a supper with the ambassador of Canada, Canadian furs, all up for auction. Over $126,000 was raised in the auction.
