The auction is organised by the Royal British Legion in association with the British Korean Veterans Association. With the kind support of Sotheby’s, their Deputy Chairman Lord Dalmeny will be the auctioneer and all proceeds from the sale will be donated to the British Korean Veterans Association Relief Fund, as a final "present" as the exhibition itself has been.

The Silent Auction and Reception on the 8 October will begin with a preview and registration for bidders, during the evening, guests will add their bids to the corresponding bid sheets beneath each piece of artwork. The pieces which attract the 15 highest bidders will be selected for the Private Auction and Sumptuous Korean Meal on the 11 October.
