The Lyre Association of North America (LANA) and the Phoenixville Area Time Bank (PATB) will hold an online charity auction from March 5th through March 15th to help people in need. The 120+ auction items include paintings, books, musical instruments, and many treasures.
"PATB is excited to partner with LANA for this online auction. Funding community members allows them to participate in our service exchange system, and thus strengthen further the bonding among community members," said Diana Baldi, President of PATB.
Proceeds will sponsor members who need financial aid to attend the 8th World Lyre Conference in the Czech Republic in August 2021. PATB will provide scholarships to designated constituents who need assistance paying their membership fees. For PATB items, the proceeds will be split 60 (LANA) / 40 (PATB).
Both organizations hope to raise $2,000+ for these worthy causes. The auction can be accessed via this link – www.32auctions.com/LANA.
The Phoenixville Area Time Bank (www.patimebank.org) was founded in 2004 to provide and foster an effective alternative to the market economy by using service hours as currency. (One hour of a member’s time equals one “Time Dollar.”) The vision is to build an online network of neighbors who generously share their talents, skills, and time with each other, including local non-profits and businesses.
The Lyre Association of North America (http://lyreassociation.org/), founded in 1984, continues to support its Mission: To initiate, to inspire, and to support the sounding of the modern lyre through artistic, pedagogical, and therapeutic activities in North America and throughout the world.
