LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - South Mississippi residents had the opportunity Saturday night to bid on dozens of pieces of fine art from all across the U.S. during an auction for a worthy cause.
The 9th annual Art of Healing at The Gables in Laurel featured 150 donated works, in both live and silent auctions.
The event is a fundraiser for the South Central Healthcare Foundation.
That organization supports several community health initiatives.
"Our goal this year is to raise $30,000," said Becky Collins, director of community relations for the South Central Healthcare Foundation. "That will allow us to continue to provide support for those in our community and to purchase new educational devices and new screening equipment."
The event was also a celebration of the 65th anniversary of South Central Regional Medical Center.
