PRICELESS & YOU
Local artists are commissioned to make artworks (valued $500 - 1,000).
At the Priceless auction each piece is auctioned off to young professionals. The
winner of each artwork is the ‘YoPro’ who pledges the most volunteer hours.
These hours are worked off valued at participating not-for-profit organizations.
Each artwork will be endorsed through the year within the local sponsors’
locations and throughout the event’s promotion. Throughout the year, the
artworks will be presented to each winner upon pledge completion.
This is an open call for the first annual PRICELESS juried art auction.
