almost entirely by donations from individuals and local businesses.
According to Caroline Gandy, executive director of the park, “The auction is a hugely important component of the park’s fundraising efforts. This single event raises nearly 20 percent of the park’s annual budget, and it takes all kinds of bidders to make the auction a success: those who spend $500, as well as those who spend $50 or even $5.”
