We are always seeking great causes that are bringing about positive changes in the world for the betterment of other’s lives. In our search for charities and organizations that serve God’s purpose to love others as ourselves, we fortunately discovered Barbara Hollander and Associates, a silent auction company that aligns with charities around the world. We want to shine light on the Founder, Barbara Hollander herself.
Born and raised in New York, Barbara began her career at the prestigious advertising agency Young & Rubicam. Working closely with the agency’s Art Buyers inspired Barbara to begin representing film talent and photojournalists both domestically and internationally.
After raising her two sons on her own, Barbara eventually made her way to Los Angeles to follow her dream. She is the proud mom of two remarkable young men, Garrett and Austin Barbera who are both extremely accomplished in their careers, and her first grandson, Chanson.
Despite facing the difficult struggle of being a single mom, Barbara learned to be grateful for the positive way her life unfolded in Los Angeles. The experience inspired her with a fervent desire to pay it forward. By helping many philanthropic organizations through her silent auction services, she is able to help many non profits raise money for their charity.
Barbara Hollander is dedicated to making fundraising silent auctions more successful by offering a multitude of services to Galas, Golf Tournaments, Food and Wine Festivals.
Barbara works with Signature Events by providing a wide range of customized auction services, as well as items i.e. authenticated memorabilia in the sports and Hollywood arena, art, fine and high fashion jewelry, handbags, an amazing South African Safari and more!
Some of the leading nonprofits throughout California that have benefitted from these services include The Los Angeles Police Protective League, The Beverly Hills Police Foundation, P.S. I Love You Foundation Hosted by Mario Lopez, Penny Lane Center, Crohn’s and Colitis of Orange County, Ronald McDonald House, Boys and Girls Clubs, Kasem Cares, Pathfinders of Palm Springs, Michael Reagan Annual Golf Tournament, Miracle Babies, and many others.
She finds great fulfillment in being able to help so many wonderful people raise money for their cause.
One of Barbara’s passions is fine jewelry. As a result of her love for jewelry, Barbara offers to her close friends and family, as well as silent auctions, the finest crafted jewelry that she personally hand selects with an eye for high fashion, design and uniqueness.
Barbara currently lives in Calabasas, CA with her significant other George Paige, a television & film producer along with their rescue dog Simba.
