The annual I Love My Gallery Auction raked in nearly $23,000 over the weekend for Gallery Stratford.

The gallery’s Director and Curator Angela Brayham explains what kinds of projects and programs those bids go to.

She says more than 300 local businesses donated around 440 items which were auctioned off partially online and then live over the air on the weekend.

The event has been running for 40 of the gallery’s fifty years of operation, making it one of the gallery’s biggest fundraisers of the year.
