God's Love We Deliver, in partnership with Heritage Auctions, announced today the launch of the CowParade NYC 2021 auction, selling 73 unique cows painted and designed by dozens of artists for the 100th staging of the global CowParade. All net proceeds from sales will fund the mission of God's Love We Deliver to cook and deliver medically tailored meals for those too sick to shop or cook for themselves. The online auction is live on the Heritage website, HA.com/CowParadeNYC, and will be open to bidders from around the world through October 7, with bidding starting at $1,000 per cow.
"God's Love We Deliver is thrilled to be the exclusive charity partner of the CowParade," says Karen Pearl, God's Love We Deliver President & CEO. "After such a difficult 16 months, these cows have brought such joy to NYC, much like our meal deliveries do for our clients. We are thrilled that, with our auction with Heritage Auctions, the joy of CowParade will live on. We trust in our friends at Heritage to create an unparalleled auction experience that will yield fantastic results, and ultimately, allow us to keep working toward our mission to ensure no one living with severe illness goes without a delicious, nutritious meal delivered with a smile."
