The 2013 Celebrity Martini Glass Auction will take place on Feb. 18, and feature over 20 exclusive glasses signed by famous musicians, actors, athletes, artists, and chefs. For the first time, absentee bidding is available to the public online through http://www.naplescmga.com.
The process begins first with celebrities graciously autographing the martini glasses, and then artists from around the country create unique works-of-art, in and around the glasses, which are designed to reflect the special attributes of each celebrity.
Some of the celebrities who have signed the glasses include Actor Matt Damon; NY Yankee Derek Jeter; Actress Raquel Welch; TV & Radio Host Larry King; Actor James Earl Jones; Actress Jane Seymour; Legendary Catcher Johnny Bench; Designer Michael Kors; Top Chef Michael Colicchio; Actress Nicole Kidman & Singer Keith Urban; Actress Betty White and the cast of Hot in Cleveland, and Swimsuit Model Kate Upton.
