Auction proceeds benefit three local organizations

On Friday, September 16, representatives from La Bouffe Additionnelle, The Betty Riel Foundation, and the Little Green Library gathered to receive their portions of the proceeds from Barbara Walter’s silent art auction, held in late August and early September at the Salle Culturelle Alfred Langevin.

It was heartwarming to see so many people choosing to contribute to several charitable organizations in our community, while enjoying some local art,” says Walter. Of the 57 paintings exhibited, 36 were sold, bringing in a total of $4,250:  $1,307 for La Bouffe Additionnelle, $1,221 for the Betty Riel Foundation, and $1,722 for the Little Green Library.

Walter thanks those who helped make the event a success, while acknowledging the work of the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent cultural committee for their guidance and cheerful approach to the setup, promotion, and unfolding of the auction. “It made what seemed a daunting task, a positive experience for all,” she says.
