In a press release today the Community United Charleston Fund announced what it calls its "extraordinary" auction items that will go on sale in conjunction with the fund's event next Thursday
. Auction bidders can pre-register here,
and are invited to bid on hundreds of auction items ranging from $50-$50,000. The auction opens this Fri. July 3, and closes at midnight on Thurs. July 9.
All of the items were donated — which is pretty incredible when you check out the list. There are more than 100 pieces or original art, including works represented by local galleries like Robert Lange Studios, Dog & Horse Fine Art, the George Gallery, and more. There are trips, too, like one to Capetown, South Africa for a safari, and one to NYC for the New York Wine experience. We'll take both, please.
Head to the site
to see the full list. Organizers estimate that the total value of items donated so far exceeds $500,000.
