VERSACE AUCTIONS OFF INTERNSHIP FOR CHARITY

By Kim Swidler

The House of Versace has joined with charitybuzz.com to auction off an internship at its New York City offices during the summer or fall semester of 2012 (http://www.charitybuzz.com/categories/55/catalog_items/2919122).

The internship provides no compensation, and neither travel costs nor accommodations are included. However, the fashion house says that the winner can earn college credit and values this experience at $10,000.00.

What will the recipient of this prize be doing? Charitybuzz.com states that "the winner will help organize and execute any NYC-based events (usually one per season) all while gaining internship experience in the high-energy and exciting world of fashion at one of the world's most dynamic and creative fashion houses."

The auction ends on January 19, 2012 at 3:40m EST and, as of this writing, the bid is presently at $3,250.00 plus "shipping/handling costs" and sales tax for New York and California residents.

Proceeds of the auction are to benefit Oceana (http://na.oceana.org).

Kim Swidler invites your comments on this and other future fashion blogs. Please share your thoughts.
