On the first day of each section’s auction, the price for each piece in that section is $750. The next day (at 2:00 Eastern), the price drops to $550. The third day, it drops to $350, then $250, then $150, and finally $75.
The first section will begin September 12th at 2:00 PM Eastern.
The second section will begin September 19th at 2:00 PM Eastern.
The third section will begin September 26th at 2:00 PM Eastern.
Usually I donate a piece for this very important fundraiser and did not get to it this year. Maybe I’ll purchase a new piece of art work instead!
