It’s hard to imagine but this year PICA will be celebrating over 25 years of holding our annual fundraising auction!! This year will be no different. The PICA Auction will provide a wonderful opportunity to have fun, do some holiday shopping and support great work for social justice in Maine and in El Salvador. The Annual PICA Auction raises money for our own work and to help support Bangor’s sister city of Carasque, El Salvador.

Local artisans, businesses and generous donors offer wonderful items including original artwork, sweatshop-free clothing, holiday wreaths, pottery, massage, books, yoga and dance lessons, Reiki treatment, gift certificates for local restaurants and stores, seacoast weekend, plants, flowers, food and more! The Auction’s format includes both a silent and live auction, so there is something for everyone. No shopping experience offers so much variety in one place – with lots of fun, live music, free food, lively conversation and our live auction led again this year by Mark Kelly. A few of the items up for bid this year are a handmade kitchen island with maple top, a signed Stephen King book, a signed Boston Red Sox baseball, massage, jewelry, books and much more! So gather your friends and your holiday lists and join us for an exciting afternoon.
