The AWA 2023 Annual Carpet Auction Was Fabulous

The American Women's Association of Singapore (AWA) and Eastern Carpets recently came together for the Annual Carpet Auction held on September 29, 2023, at the Singapore Recreation Club. It was a night full of heartwarming moments and positivity.

The partnership with Eastern Carpets brought a touch of elegance to the evening, showcasing a fine selection of carpets. Attendees came with enthusiasm and a genuine desire to contribute to AWA's initiatives. Bidders engaged in friendly competition, and the auctioneer's charming banter made the experience truly enjoyable.

As the 2023 Annual Carpet Auction drew to a close, there was a sense of camaraderie and hope in the air. We view this year's event as a stepping stone towards future success, and we're excited about the opportunities to make the next auction even more spectacular.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who attended this year's event and made it a memorable evening. Stay tuned as we continue to work on improving and enhancing the Annual Carpet Auction for an even more remarkable experience next year!

Here is a slideshow recap of the fun and memorable evening. We feel it captures the positive and enthusiastic energy of this great event!
