Wine Auctions Nets $2.1 Million

In its 16th year, the 2008 High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction reached a Live Auction total of more than $1.5 million. Silent auctions and a Paddle Raise during the live auction brought the total to over $1.76 million in auction sales during the March event. The auction total along with event ticket sales brought the net profit for the 2008 Wine Auction to $2.1million, marking only the second time in its history to have raised over $2 million. Proceeds from the auction are a vital part of the Museum’s acquisition, exhibition and educational programming funds.
