This is the 24th annual auction benefiting the Albany Museum of Art. More than 150 products and services were donated for this fundraiser.
The televised auction has brought in as much as $60,000 for the Albany Museum. And that money goes back to Southwest Georgia through the services provided at the museum.
"It allows us to put on exceptional exhibits and educational programs. We don't charge admission. So admission is free here and to many of our events for families and people of all ages," said Interim Director, Nick Nelson.
This year's auction was shortened by two hours because of lack of donations. Organizers hoped that the economy didn't keep people from making their bids which helps pay for the museums operating expenses.
