2017 - 22nd Annual Art Auction
Once again, in 2017, our 22nd annual art auction was a success, bringing in nearly $37,000. In part, due to the generous donations of sculptors, such as Josh Tobey, who when two different people were bidding on his bronze horse, "Noble Spirit", said, he would give them each one for the $2,200 bid price. This is truly a generous donation by Josh, a renown sculptor who also serves on our board.
