Third Annual Hanover Against Hunger Silent Auction

Last year the Hanover Area Arts Guild partnered with Hanover Against Hunger to hold its first-ever Silent Art Auction. Due to the success of that event, the Guild is hosting another auction which is running concurrently with its 99 and Under Show from July 5 through September 30. Local Guild artists have donated a range of artwork in different media to be auctioned in support of this nonprofit, which enables the local organization to hold a community-wide meal packing event every two years.

At last year’s event, 73,000 meals were prepared, primarily for school-age children. The goal for the next scheduled event, to be held on November 4, 2023, is to pack over 200,000 meals. By meeting this goal, the Hanover community will have packed over one-half million meals since the events began in 2012. To achieve this goal, $78,000 must be raised.

You can help. Come visit the Guild. While you are here, enjoy the 99 and Under Show and bid on some sensational artwork to help fight hunger. If you are unable to stop by, review the wonderful artwork in our digital Gallery below and bid using the Online Bid Form. Deadline for bids has been extended one month to Saturday, September 30, at 3 pm. All bidders will be contacted shortly after the close of the Auction and successful bidders will be notified at that time.
