Fleming College is having a 50th anniversary celebration at the Haliburton School of Art and Design.

They will be hosting an art auction next weekend at the Haliburton campus to raise money for its student programs and bursaries.

Haliburton School Dean and Principal Sandra Dupret tells the My Haliburton Now newsroom that teachers at the school are donating their art for the auction.

Dupret says they have around 70 works of art so far and are expecting approximately 100 pieces before the auction.

She adds the auction has been an annual tradition at the Haliburton campus for around 40 years.

According to Dupret, the auction raises anywhere between $13,000-$17,000.

The celebration starts at 5:00 p.m. on August 10 with live entertainment.

The event is free to attend.
