Au profit d’œuvres de bienfaisance

For just a couple of more days, until October 31, 2012, you have the chance to bid on some extraordinary items and experiences while you help others at the Dior Auction. This online event gives you the opportunity to help Look Good, Feel Better, an organization that supports cancer patients by helping them feel beautiful and feminine while they go through treatment. The items up for bid are fairly spectacular and 100% of the proceeds will go to the charity. How would you like to win a trip for two to Paris? You’ll fly business class, stay at the beautiful Le Meurice hotel (right next to Angelina tea room) for four nights and have a makeover at the Dior salon on Avenue Montaigne. The present bid is $10,650 – a bit rich for my blood.  Maybe a power lunch with LVMH executive Pamela Baxter at a chic New York restaurant would help you give your career the boost you’re looking for? It’s currently going for $750. Perhaps you could get a head start on your holiday shopping with a private collection group of candles and perfumes? It’s at $650 right now.

Today’s expression is au profit d’œuvres de bienfaisance (owe prohfee duvruh duh bee-en-fez-anse), which means a charity sale or event. My school’s motto is “doing well and doing good.” That’s what the Dior Auction is all about. And if you win the trip to Paris, may I please tag along?
