Annual Art Auction 2011
January 24, 2011
On Saturday evening, January 22nd, Temple Emanu-El Sisterhood’s Annual Art Auction was a total success !
Our guest auctioneer, Eric Steiner, from the firm State of the Art, told us at the closing of the festivities that this year’s auction “was probably the best he has experienced in Dothan for the past 19 years.”
Temple’s Social Hall was packed with over 300 members of our congregation as well as the general Dothan community, by far the largest such audience in many years.
After a reception that included champagne, wonderful hors d’oeurves, and desserts, the audience enjoyed almost three hours of auction entertainment.
A huge catalog of top quality pieces was sold at the more formal Saturday night event as well as the informal Sunday morning activity.
A portion of the proceeds from this annual art auction will be donated by Sisterhood to vitally important Dothan community organizations and to support our synagogue.
