Community Art Auction

Every year at the end of the school district’s annual Youth Art Month, Trumansburg Education Foundation invites local artists to join students in our yearly fundraising event, the Community Art Auction. Proceeds go to the to fund our enriching programs such as Kids Discover the Trail, the student-authored Trumansburg Troubadour, the Educator Grant Program, and many more.

The Foundation’s ten year anniversary was in 2017, and the Community Art Auction was part of the celebration. Forge Wine Cellars sold wine with 100% of proceeds benefiting the Foundation. Good to Go donated food, Chris Wofford acted as auctioneer, and Rosie Newton, Paul Martin and Steve Selin filled the room with music. Door prizes, raffles and live auctions were part of the fun.
