Celebrating Czech Heritage at Bohemian National Hall

Savor a night of talent, beauty, and skills with the Czech ice-hockey legend, Patrik Eliáš, an exquisite fashion show, and an exciting hockey memorabilia auction.

Witness a debate with successful Czech NHL player, Patrik Eliáš, and take a chance to be the lucky bearer of hockey memorabilia. Enjoy an exclusive show of the newest collection "Belonging" by fashion designer Iva Pfeiffer, inspired by several different cultures and accompanied with music by Tomáš Kačo.


Patrik Eliáš will be visiting the Bohemian National Hall, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, for a night of Czech Heritage Celebration. Not only will guests be able to meet the hockey legend himself in person, but they will have the opportunity to bid in an auction for his very own, one-of-a-kind, hockey memorabilia.

Iva Pfeiffer, a Czech-Australian fashion designer, whose works have been presented at the New York Fashion Week, will be opening the event with the exclusive show of her new collection “Belonging" accompanied by live music of the very talented pianist, composer and singer Tomáš Kačo.

Guests can RSVP through Eventbrite here. Please arrive 10 minutes early to secure your RSVP.


Bid in an unique auction to support UNICEF. Patrik Eliáš is UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. 

Patrik’s signed hockey stick. This is the actual stick with which Patrik Elias played a victorious group stage game (against Latvia/Slovakia) during the 2010 Winter Olympic games in Vancouver, where he captained the team. There were 5 sticks made. This is the only stick that still exists: three were broken and one was given away.

Patrik’s signed game jersey. This is a replica of Patrik Elias‘s away jersey from the 2014 Stadium series game against the New York Rangers. 2014 was the first year of the Stadium series and the NJ Devils played at the Yankee Stadium in front of 60,000 people. The green stripe also relates to St. Patrick’s day which Patrik proudly celebrated because of his nickname - “Patty”.

Two VIP tickets. These tickets include game passes to the “lower sector” for a regular season home game of the winner’s choosing, access to the NJ Devils locker room, and a “Pass” to the centre of the ice in Prudential Center where the winner can pose for a picture with the main logo.  

Haute couture dress "Meandering"
by Iva Pfeiffer Creations

This exquisite silk organza gown designed by Czech-Australian designer Iva Pfeiffer features intricately-decorated and hand-stitched French lace that evokes the whimsical meandering of nature. A unique one-off creation and on display for the first time ever, Meandering is the perfect wedding or special-event gown. 

The hand-stitching of the silver-grey and cream French lace was a labour of love, comprising 400 hours of work meticulously undertaken by Iva herself and four of the most talented artisans.

Drawing on her fascination of 1920s Orientalism, and incorporating contemporary techniques that emphasise the movement and strength of the female body, Iva has created an incomparable work of art that isstunning and timeless. She is renowned for drawing on traditions and techniques that span many eras and cultures, and Meandering is a perfect example of this.



Size: 8-10
6 sequences (each valued at US$800) of silver grey and cream French lace, leather and shell sequinned.
Off-white organza dress, Off-white silk satin slip – contrasting colored slip could be worn to change the tone and personality.
