Thank you for participating in this year’s Call to Auction!

We called out to our amazing community and you answered!  

Our auction has officially ended and we are proud to announce that we raised over $70,000 to support the Center for Puppetry Arts.  

Donors joined us from all 50 states, and other countries – Canada and UK.  What an incredible and fun online fundraising event! 

Thank you so much for your participation.  Mark your calendars for next year!
