Just to review: Doors open at 6 p.m. At 6:30 bidding starts. You pay $10 for a pencil and sign up for the art you want to buy. As many as 10 people can try to buy each piece of art.

At 7:30 the auction begins, with a blind drawing determining who gets to buy each piece. Cost per painting is $99, which is a bargain considering some of the artists contributing this year get hundreds, and thousands, for their work.

Some is just fun, like the coffin with a Pez dispenser inside. Some of really elegant. All is amazing.
