Last Night at Sotheby's: Elephants Forever

On 27 October, Sotheby’s New York held a presale cocktail reception in anticipation of the night’s main event: Elephants Forever, an auction, in partnership with Maclaren, of 22 contemporary artworks. Hosted by Owen Wilson, the event raised more than $1 million to benefit two organizations: Elephant Family, dedicated to saving endangered Asian elephants, and Space for Giants, whose mission is to preserve open habitats for African elephants.
