The thousands of dollars raised at the Haliburton School of Art and Design Faculty Art Auction will go towards the students.

The Dean of the school Sandra Dupret says many people who go to the school struggle with money.

Dupret says over $30,000 was raised, which will be used for additional bursaries and scholarships.

She says the school’s annual auction makes the difference on whether students can attend post-secondary education or not.

The event was on August 11th, at the Haliburton Campus.
