first benefit auction online, says Angie Day.
Shreveporters will have the most interest in the bidding, since many of the items to be auctioned are from restaurants - Cush's to Carrabba's - and other service-oriented businesses - golf, photography, dance, etc - in East Shreveport. But there are some items, such as art, that might be valuable to a person in Portland.
Example: artist Talbot Hopkins is offering a discount of $1000 on a head & shoulders portrait done in sanguine crayon or pencil (client pays photography fee). The full cost of the portrait would be $3000.
Items will be added as the week of auctioning unfolds, says Day.
