Haute Event: Jane Fonda Hosts 3rd Annual It’s About Time Benefit

For the much anticipated IKEA’s 3rd Annual It’s About Time Auction to benefit Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy (G-CAAP), Jane Fonda will be returning to Atlanta to rally support for hear dear cause. This event, unlike any other in Atlanta, auctions off 100 clocks and timepieces that have been transformed into amazing works of art by both artists and celebrities.

The works of art are all designed and inspired by the concept of time and created with clocks provided by IKEA. But don’t expect anything average. This benefit is all about personal expression. Last year, designer Brian Patrick Flynn’s designed a clock inside a chair.  (pictured below)


Past designers included Ludacris, Ne-Yo, Ted Turner, Big Boi, Maya Angelou, Sally Field, Rosie O’Donnell and Wanda Sykes, so you can only imagine how unique these one-of-a-kind pieces are. Held at the Atlanta IKEA at Atlantic Station, this year should be just as successful. So far, we know that Jane Fonda (of course), Victoria Rowell and Radcliffe Bailey are some of the celebrity and artists that will join in the festivities for this year’s benefit.   The curator of the IKEA’s It’s About Time 2010 is Matt Arnett. He is working with an exciting (and still secret) list of artists and celebrities. .

With Jane Fonda’s star power for her foundation, the past two years of this event are still being talked about among social circles. Those who won the timepieces in the past definitely have major bragging rights. WE love how this G-CAPP event is always fun and relaxing. This is one of those benefit’s where the atmosphere is relaxed and fun.  It’s About Time Event benefits G-CAPP’s Second Chance Home program which helps teenage mother’s become self- sufficient by providing them with a safe living environment and support for long term independence and education.

Tickets are $75, but we recommend you bring your checkbook and your game face. You may find yourself in a bidding against celebrities for these one-of-a-kind pieces of art.

The benefit is located at IKEA,  441 16th Street, NW, Atlanta (Atlantic Station). Tickets are $75 and are available for purchase online at www.gcapp.org/its-about-time-2010.
