Phone calls helps keep Albany Museum of Art going

April 6, 2008

Albany -- Hundreds of South Georgians helped raise money for the Albany Museum of Art with just A telephone call.

Sunday, "Let's Make a Bid," aired right here on WALB. Over 140 businesses donated items and services to be auctioned off.

This is the biggest fundraiser for the museum and represents about eight percent of their operating budget.

Every dollar donated will go towards education and community activities held by the Albany Museum of Art.

"They allow you to have creative thought. They allow you to have creativity. They give you the reasoning skills. All things that are important in this test taking society that we live in," said Director of Marketing and Development, Calandra Jefferson.

Organizers say Sunday's fundraiser wouldn't have been possible without the 250 volunteers who worked from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM to put it together.
