Auction Postponement Notice

Out of respect and care for the community we serve, it is with a heavy but hopeful heart that CEPA has made the decision to postpone its 16th Charitable Auction originally scheduled for this Friday, May 20th. This is a marked pause to allow our community time to breathe, heal, and take care of our people before we push on.

Now more than ever, our goal to provide an outlet and education hub for diverse perspectives to come together and creatively grow our community feels vital. It is important that we focus our attention on helping the people most affected before we can heartily resume our mission of inspiration, education, and advocacy through art.

With the help of our compassionate partners at 500 Pearl and Ellicott Development, CEPA has rescheduled its celebration of art as an essential facet of life and community for Friday, June 24th, 2022, 6-9 PM at the beautiful Forbes Theater.

Our community of artists has pulled together and donated new lots to be added to our auction, allowing us to earmark $8,000 of our auction proceeds to be donated to direct relief efforts. The bidding will be extended until June 24th.

We ask that you share this message of hope, love, and support with the Greater Buffalo community, and look forward to seeing you on June 24th.
