Ten days ago we held our biennial silent auction of pre-loved art and decor objects from some of the finest homes in Montgomery. Three hundred twelve art items were donated from all over the River Region. The donation of 10 works by Selma artist John Lapsley certainly garnered the attention of southern art collectors.
The panoply of works of art was supplemented with sixteen unique experience packages. From being able to throw out the first pitch at a Biscuits game to hanging out with Ariel at Alabama Shakespeare’s Little Mermaid performance. We had once-in-a-lifetime opportunities at every bid card!
The committee, chaired by Courtney Kershaw worked hard to get the best donations ever, and with a 92% sales rate, we think she was wildly successful! The event ran smoothly with Lisa Capell chairing the logistics of the event with past chair Ashley White, fellow board member Gloria Simons and docent Lisa Newcomb.
