Bid on six-foot works of art from Elephant Parade and help raise money for Asian elephant conservation. Elephant Parade, which made its US debut in August after international stops in London, Amsterdam, Milan, and Singapore, is an open-air display of dozens of life-sized, vibrantly colored elephant sculptures began in 2006 by a father and son who, while traveling in Thailand, encountered the world’s first elephant to receive a prosthetic limb after losing a leg to a landmine. To date, Elephant Parade has raised over $5 million for the cause – the Asian elephant is nearly extinct - and has been seen by over 8 million people. Enjoy champagne and a gorgeous ocean view during the auction at the Marriott in Dana Point.
