7th on Sale at eBay

7th on Sale is a one-of-a-kind fashion experience where you can bid on thousands of items from the world's top designers, including red carpet gowns worn by your favorite celebrities, fabulous dresses, shoes, handbags, home décor, and much more. And, 100% of the proceeds are donated to providing care, services and housing for those living with HIV and AIDS.

This is the world's biggest sample sale and it kicks off on November 15, 2007 with a black-tie gala in New York. That will be followed by three days of shopping open to the public, November 16-18, in New York. Click here to purchase tickets to one of the sessions. Also, make sure you check eBay often because seven-day auctions will launch daily between November 15 and December 6. All bids start at only 10% of the retail price and hundreds of designers have donated items.

The 2007 event is sure to make fashion and fundraising history once again as fashion's biggest names join forces as major sponsors of 7th on Sale: the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), eBay, Kenneth Cole Productions, M·A·C AIDS Fund, Marc Jacobs International, Polo Ralph Lauren, Topshop and VOGUE Magazine.

In addition, the M•A•C AIDS Fund has generously agreed to match every dollar raised at the online auctions, up to $500,000.

A little history...

7th on Sale was founded in 1990 by the CFDA Foundation and VOGUE magazine. In its first three incarnations (1990 and 1995 in New York City, 1992 in San Francisco) the initiative raised more than $11 million, which was distributed by the New York City AIDS Fund to benefit HIV and AIDS organizations. The 2005 re-launch of 7th on Sale, available for the first time online through eBay, brought in an additional $1.7 million for the cause, which was distributed over the last two years through opportunity grants and requests-for-proposal. Beneficiaries over the years have included dozens of worthy organizations like AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA), Alpha Workshops, amfAR, Gay Men's Health Crisis, God's Love We Deliver, Greenhope Services for Women, Harlem United Community AIDS Center, HIV Law Project, and the Latino Commission on AIDS, among many others.
