The auction is a great way to get some original artwork from super talented artists at incredibly discounted prices.  You can feel good knowing that 100% of the money raised go to the charity effort.
For those who are unaware, the Shriner’s Hospital for Children is a non-profit hospital that provides life changing medical care for children at NO COST to the family.
