Dureau, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been admitted to a nursing home and needs money to offset the costs. A group called Friends of George partnered with CCAG to hold this auction.
Auctioneers Adam Lambert and Ruthie Winston sold to over 200 live, phone and Internet bidders using LiveAuctioneers, with bidding exceeding the overall expected high estimate.
Crescent City Auction Gallery achieved a total hammer price of $31,100 and donated an additional $1,555 to help pay for George Dureau’s medical care.
“We were very pleased with the results,” said Crescent City Auction Gallery’s president, Adam Lambert. “It was important to us to know that all of the money raised would be directly benefiting Dureau.”
