Dunbar Heritage Association accepting donations for online auction
The Dunbar Heritage Association (DHA) is celebrating Juneteenth this year with an array of online events including an online auction.
The Dunbar Heritage Association was started in 1999 by Harvey Miller, current DHA President Alex Banbury’s grandfather. The mission of the organization was to organize, promote and raise awareness for the three cornerstones of Black culture: Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Black History Month and Juneteenth. This is the first year the DHA will host its annual Juneteenth celebration online.
Dunbar Heritage Association Secretary Jonafa Banbury said the organization will be accepting donations for the virtual auction from local businesses, residents and organizations that would like to contribute until June 10, at the latest. All proceeds from the auction will go to the DHA and the local events and discussions they provide.
The auction will take place on the Dunbar Heritage Association’s Facebook page starting June 12 at 10 a.m. to June 19 at 7 p.m.
To make a donation or ask questions, contact Dunbar Heritage Association Treasurer Claudea Blythe at 512-781-1872.
