The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports The Carter Center's auction will take place Saturday as part of a five-day retreat at a Virginia resort for the center's supporters. Proceeds from the wide-ranging offerings will go toward efforts to advance global peace and health care.
The newspaper reports that last year, the event pulled in $3.5 million from bidders. The highest bid went to "Rachel and Cotton," an original 2016 oil painting made by President Carter.
Carter grew up in Plains, Georgia.
