The 2015 PSA auction was a great success! All funds went to support student awards and fellowships! The kelp statue by Gary Saunders was auctioned for $600 and the original artwork for the meeting resulted in a bidding war between Juan Lopez Bautista and Ken Karol - finally selling for $220 - Ken Karol and John Hall proceeded to gift the artwork to Rick McCourt, one of the local organizers of the meeting here in Philadelphia. During the auction we were also treated to a song about Ascophyllum by David Garbary and Rob Fitch (apologies for the shaking footage, it was challenging to not laugh and film at the same time :)! Fortunately we have this captured on video for perpetuity! Thank you to everyone who came out and to all of those bidders and winners of the auction! Enjoy!
