ALBANY, GA (WALB) – South Georgians made hundreds of bids Sunday afternoon to help raise money for the Albany Museum of Art.

The museum hosts Let's Make a Bid each year to keep the facility up and running.

"We get donations from various businesses in the area, and we auction them off to the highest bidder," said Crystal Morrison, Marketing & Public Relations Mgr.

Dozens of items were up for bid like artwork, and signed memorabilia from stars in sports and film.

"We brought in about $30,000 last year," said Morrison.

Organizers hope for more bids this year.

"I volunteered this and last year because I believe in the cause," said Catherine Glover, Albany Area Chamber of Commerce.

The entire broadcast is made possible thanks to volunteers.

"We have over 60 volunteers, they work the board, man the telephone bank, and help us after the event," said Morrison.

This was the 25th year of let's make a bid.
