19 Pieces of artwork were up for bid for this sold-out event. Every AMAzing piece there was made by students in Awakening Minds Art programming, and many of the students enjoy coming to show off their work every year. This year, 15 students were in attendance to walk their artwork around the room with an instructor during auction.
What is a Mission Auction? During a mission auction, the auctioneer announces levels of support, and individuals raise their auction paddles to indicate their pledge at that announced level. “Who is willing to donate $1,000 tonight?” and paddles go up!
The dinner sponsor for the event was Kris & Jennifer Hagedorn. Dinner was a delicious salmon, brisket, asparagus and smashed potatoes. For dessert, attendees enjoyed a yummy carrot cake!
