Museum auction will be shorter this year

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of the Albany Museum of Art's biggest fundraisers will again be broadcast on WALB.

Let's Make a Bid is scheduled for Sunday May 31st. You can watch and place bids on auction items that will help the museum with operating expenses.

This year, the program has been shortened by two hours. That's because donations are down because of the economy, and organizers want the auction to move along at a swift pace to keep up the excitement and hopefully, the bids. 

"We've shortened the length in hopes it will move a little faster, be a little more exciting for our viewers," said Nick Nelson.

The Museum hopes to raise close to $60,000 from the auction. The list of donated items is being finalized this week.

You'll be able to bid by watching WALB on Sunday May 31st from 2-6:30 PM.
