Tickets NOW ON SALE through 3 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 19. Tickets will be available in the Holeman Lounge of The National Press Club thereafter.

Plan now to attend the 28th annual auction of editorial cartoons made possible through generous donations of original* cartoon art by prize-winning cartoonists.

Join us Nov. 19 in the National Press Club ballroom for an evening of food, drink and lively bidding. It's a fantastic opportunity for collectors and admirers of cartoon art to acquire new works and help good causes.

*Because some cartoonists are creating their work electronically, their C&C items vary. Some are limited-run prints with original signatures; some are original sketches accompanied by signed prints.

Catalog sponsorships still available

We simply could not produce this marvelous evening without the help of generous sponsors. Over two and half decades, sponsors have included newspapers, associations, corporate giants, small businesses, communications consultants and devoted individuals. Please become a sponsor of the 28th Cartoons & Cocktails by completing and submitting the order form, page four of the sponsorship kit.

Check out the C&C 2010 video

You'll see the National Press Club ballroom light up as the country's largest auction of cartoons fills the room and our guests vie for them. Over the years, thousands have bid their way to ownership of original drawings or signed prints donated by cartoonists around the world, including many Pulitzer-Prize winning artists.
