JFAB 2018 Auction: Partnering for Pro Bono

This year, The Pro Bono Project is partnering with the non-profit fundraising organization Am Fund to raise the bar on our live and silent auctions with a selection of travel that will stir up everyone's wanderlust at the Justice For All Ball.

For those not familiar with Am Fund, this NPO was founded in 1999 by the husband and wife team of Ken and Barbara West, 30-year veteran journalists.

The duo decided when they retired that they wanted to do good for those working hard to do good in the world.

Headquartered in Orlando, FL, Am Fund has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local and national nonprofits by using their expertise in special event fundraising, international travel, as well as hosting silent and live auctions.

“Through our partnership with AmFund, the Justice For All Ball's silent and live auctions will have an added level of excitement this year with several new travel adventures on which ball-goers can bid,” says Executive Director, CC Kahr.

Oh, the places you’ll go ….

Once Upon A Star

In addition to the AmFund trips, we’re happy to report that our partnership with CBS’ NCIS: New Orleans continues this year. Go behind the scenes for a set tour, a meet and greet with cast and crew, and other goodies that make this one of the ‘gotta have’ items up for bid to celebrate the 30th Anniversary JFAB.

Those who were at the 2017 JFAB know that a bidding war ensued between two Ball guests and the NCIS Location Manager, David Thornsberry generously provided a second tour creating a win-win for the bidders and The Project.

Lights, Camera ...

They’re always filming somewhere around metro New Orleans – now, you’ll get to be right there when the director says, “Action!”

Join the cast and crew on the set for a behind the scenes tour of one of the most popular crime series franchises in TV history – CBS Television's NCIS: New Orleans.

  • A full behind-the-scenes tour of all 4 permanent sets of this locally produced television series (Dwayne’s apartment/kitchen, the squad room, the laboratory and the bar) and two ‘swing’ sets (currently the Mayor’s Office and one other temporary set that is under construction).
  • Access to Video Village where you can watch the episode being filmed while seated in the director's chairs next to the production staff. And, most importantly, you will get to chat with the director and meet the actors in this popular television crime series!
  • The winning bidder will also receive an NCIS: New Orleans swag bag, and a copy of a Season 5 Episode script, signed by the entire cast.
  • Swag Bag includes 2 NCIS baseball hats, Mardi Gras beads with NCIS logos, NCIS water bottles, and carabiners.

The entire experience is three hours long, and you can bring a companion with you.

This auction item is priceless and a unique opportunity to get to the full flavor of the bright lights of Hollywood in NOLA.

NCIS: New Orleans rarely offers local insider access tours, so this opportunity can be yours for the winning bid.

This is more than 15 minutes of fame for some lucky bidder – it’s a lifetime memory!
