Multiple Sclerosis Research Institute Charity Auction Raises Over $37,000

November 18, 2014

An Auction hosted by Irene Berman-Levine and Sam Levine held at Cordier Auctions in Harrisburg, PA on November 16 raised more than $37,000, including cash donations, for The Multiple Sclerosis Research Institute (MSRI).

The auction included both a silent auction of more than 60 lots and a live auction of more than 170 lots. Over 100 people registered to bid and offered enthusiastic support of the cause. Some highlights include a 1958 Austin London Taxi that sold for $6,100 and a turned wood bowl by Marc Goldberg that sold for $200, both in the live auction; four Walt Disney World passes sold for $425 in the silent auction. More than 100 individuals and companies donated items for the auction in addition to over 100 individuals who made monetary donations. 100% of the proceeds will benefit MSRI, whose mission is to FIND, STOP and CURE MS. Its founder, Jeffrey Greenstein, M.D., has devoted his life to MS research. Irene Berman-Levine, a patient of Dr. Greenstein, is a board member of the MSRI and her goal was to raise $20,000 to underwrite the cost of a research assistant to staff a state of the art laboratory. Cordier Auctions donated the use of their facility at 1500 Paxton Street in Harrisburg, and Cordier’s staff volunteered their time for the event. Irene’s committee of more than 20 volunteers also put in countless hours to organize and execute the event. Additional information about the Multiple Sclerosis Research institute can be found at
