The auction brought in over $16,000 in donations, including a $1,000 donation from the Foxboro Rotary Club in advance of the event.
The event was made possible by the generous and talented members and friends of the Foxboro Art Association who donated all of the artwork for the live auction. Every piece was purchased during the evening, demonstrating the appeal of the diverse selections to the crowd. In addition, 12 Homer White paintings were sold in a silent auction that took on a life of its own, with some “collectors” outbidding one another at the last minute.
“The Doolittle Home is delighted with the outpouring of support and generosity by the community,” said Virginia Lehr, Director of Marketing and Communications for The Doolittle Home. “We plan to hold more events to showcase the partnership of The Doolittle Home and the wonderful people of Foxboro and surrounding towns.”
