“Last year my goal was to give our annual auction a fresh take. Through the aid and support of our Great American Auction Committee, staff and volunteers we, were able to accomplish it. The gallery was packed with people, standing room only. We had an incredibly successful fundraising event. My objective is to continue offering the new attractions that prompted more individuals to attend and keep adding additional big ticket items. Anyone interested in donating items please contact us. The items generously donated by members, friends, businesses and business leaders really make the difference. The bottom line is, the 28th Great American Auction is an extremely important fundraiser, we need as many people as possible to participate by attending the auction. It benefits the Community Arts Center as we continually strive to keep the Arts Alive in Cambria County. Mishler Auction Services really helps us make the difference. We get such a variety of items, no matter who attends, everyone can find something they just can’t live without!” -Angela R. Godin, Executive Director
