NEW YORK–A live auction will take place during the summer social of the New York Home Furnishings and Design Organizations Coalition.

Scheduled for July 13 at the Tribeca Rooftop here, the event will provide coalition members a chance to network with each other. The live auction will be hosted by George Oliphant, left, host of the NBC-TV program “Open House NY.” The proceeds from the auction will benefit Publicolor, an organization that provides creative programs for at-risk students.

The auction will have two components: an open auction for items with a retail value of $300 or more; and a silent auction for items priced from $100 to $299. Those wishing to donate items can get in touch with Gloria Lang of Executive Women in Home Textiles at glang8647@optonline.net.
