The Implosion of Trump Plaza for Charity

Atlantic City has been an entertainment destination for residents all along the East Coast, and as a tourist attraction, this place has built a unique and diverse history. As the city continues to develop into the 21st century, room must be made for new and exciting businesses and community endeavors. That is why, after 36 years, Atlantic City has decided to implode the old Trump Plaza.

Completed in 1984, Trump Plaza was long considered an ideal hotel and casino to spend time relaxing along the Jersey Shore. With state-of-the-art accommodations for its time, the Trump Plaza was a beacon of prosperity and the American dream. Yet, in recent years the Trump Plaza has remained vacant and in a state of disrepair. All good things must come to an end, and so Atlantic City has decided to go ahead with the demolition of this icon of the 1980s.

Proceeds Benefit The Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City

The proceeds received from this unique and historic auction will be donated to The Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City. This institution has built the foundation of Atlantic City’s future for half of a century. The funds will be distributed to youth outreach programs through the city that serve over 2,500 boys and girls. These programs include:

  • Academic Enrichment, Arts, & Recreational Programs
  • STEAM Education
  • Career Exploration & Workforce Training
  • College Preparedness
  • Mentoring & Leadership Training
  • Summer Camps
  • Healthy Meals & Food Access

The Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City has remained open throughout the duration of the pandemic providing food and resources to those that need it most. Currently, The Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City is distributing 150 warm dinners every night. They have also extended their operating hours to provide full-time daycare options for working parents in the city. The Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City offers a location for children to attend school remotely, and provides daily meals and snacks to the students.

I would like to thank you for including me in your online sale.

Everything from none contact drop off, to none contact pick up, was handled with the outmost professionalism.

I appreciated your clear communication after the sale with a printout and an explanation of when I’ll receive my check.

Overall I was very please with the prices my jewelry achieved, some lot  went for less then I expected, others went for more, it’s all in the average.

Thank you very much
