It’s like Sotheby’s if they’d had too much caffeine, and you didn’t have to pay. 


The Allegro Auction is more like an incredibly fun, fast-paced lottery than an auction. Hence the word allegro, which for all you non-melomaniacs out there is a musical term for quick-paced. All of the items are donated by our generous partners. Each pair of VIP or Friends of YSC ticket holders will receive one Allegro Auction ticket displaying a number from 1-100 and redeemable for a prize item ranging in value from $200 – $5000. Ticket numbers will be drawn by our host at random in groups of five during the VIP reception at 7:00 pm. When you hear your number called, GO! You and your partner will have 15 seconds to select your item. Once you've made your selection (good choice!) we'll whisk it away to coat check so it can be waiting for you when you depart, and the auction will continue with the next batch of winners. 

There are 100 Allegro Auction tickets in total, so every pair of VIP or Friends of YSC ticket holders will receive an auction item valued at at least $200. Check out the range below:
