The Albany Art Museum plays Let's Make a Bid

Albany- It was high energy and a fast pace for Sunday's 20th annual Let's Make a Bid charity event. The Albany Art Museum fundraiser raises nearly 20 percent of the museum's annual budget.

Over 200 volunteers took bids, answered phones, and helped with Sunday's event. Museum director Aaron Berger says, this event is a winner for both the museum and the bidders who end up with some pretty good bargains.

"They're getting their product or service, but in the process they're also helping us out. I mean, it takes so many people to be involved in this and we're as a director here I'm so thankful for it," said Berger.

One hundred and eighty items worth 90-thousand dollars were auctioned off to the highest bidder. Winners can pick up their items starting Monday at noon.
