Northwest Indian College - 10th Annual Cultural Art Auction & Benefit Dinner

Auctions For Good was honored again this year to serve as the auction company for the Northwest Indian College's annual Cultural Art Auction and Benefit Dinner.  This was our 5th year working with this great school and foundation.  The venue for the event changes each year to allow different northwest tribes the opportunity to host and this year it was at the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort, just North of Bainbridge Island, WA.

The college is the only regional tribal college in the United States and the only accredited Tribal college in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. It serves more than 120 tribes across the country.

Here are a few pieces of art that were up for bid along with other images from the evening. If you love Native American art, you may want attend this annual fundraiser, always held in mid-April, where all live and silent auction art pieces are made from members of various tribes.
