Who says people don’t buy art during a recession? You could hardly tell on Thursday as Cable Positive helped raise $8,000 for two AIDS agencies during an auction at a Buckhead gallery.

A collection of established and emerging artists, including gay photographer Bob Burkhardt, donated work that was auctioned during Positively Art at Matre Gallery in Buckhead. The estimated $8,000 raised during the evening benefits AID Atlanta and Jerusalem House.

Cable Positive is an AIDS service organization comprised of professionals from the cable and telecommunications industries.
