Annual Auction Raises $4.4 Million

The 2022 Carter Center Weekend raised $4.4 million in donations and auction sales to support the Center’s work worldwide. Events for the annual fundraiser, held June 15–19 in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, included live, silent, and online auctions, as well as a town hall with Carter Center senior leadership, presentations by Center staff, and a variety of social events.

There were 191 items in this year’s auctions, including signed photographs, artwork, and presidential memorabilia. The biggest-ticket item from the live auction was an original painting titled “Great Egret” by former President Jimmy Carter, which sold for $2.1 million.

Other items that drew top bids included a guitar autographed by John Mayer and the Grateful Dead, $150,000; a rare Peter Force print of the Declaration of Independence, $110,000; an oyster fly fishing rod collection signed by President Carter, $110,000; and a luxurious Hawaii vacation, $75,000.

Next year’s event will take place June 21–25 in Atlanta.
