Join Auction for Action and Own a Piece of Filipino History

In partnership with designer Kenneth Cobonpue, UNICEF is auctioning off six limited edition Yoda chairs used by world leaders during the APEC 2015 Welcome Dinner


The six chairs that will be auctioned off include the pieces used by the leaders from Canada, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, Singapore and the United States of America. Each chair comes with a special plaque with the name of the state leader and a certificate of authenticity from Kenneth Cobonpue.

To join the auction, all bidders must pre-register via UNICEF's website. Bidders may bid by attending the live auction on December 16 at the Kenneth Cobonpue Showroom at The Residences at Greenbelt or via SMS during the live auction. A livestream link will be made available on the said date starting at 6pm so that text bidders can monitor the event.

All proceeds from the auction will benefit UNICEF's programs for children. According to Cobonpue's Facebook page, UNICEF Philippines has chosen to allocate proceeds to the 1,000 Days Program, which gives importance to the care and nutrition of mothers and their babies. To learn more, click here.
