The minimum bid for each piece of art is $15. Bids must be placed in a minimum $5 increment. BIDS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGH 5PM on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19.
The highest bid from Facebook will be the starting bid at the event on the 21st. Bidding will continue at the event for those attending the event.
