This online auction will help support their current project that includes a retrofit of a backyard patio at Life Experiences, Inc., a company that employees people with disabilities and allows them the opportunity to earn wages. Through various donations and support, FBD has worked with faculty, alumni, and friends of the College of Design to develop a collection of sketches that are available for bidding. All proceeds will go towards the development and construction of  Life Experience project.

The Auction will be open from April 7th through April 21st and is run entirely online at:
