On March 16, the East Texas Cares Resource Center sponsored the eighth annual silent auction called "Matisse March Madness" to raise money for the Center, which assists HIV/AIDS patients. Executive director of the Center, Jeanette Deas Calhoun, stated, "We have the makings of a really, really exciting and fun art auction. This fundraiser is extremely important to our agency because it allows us to continue and support the programs that we have for our clients. Moneys generated will go directly into program services." Local artists donated approximately 170 art pieces to the silent auction expected to generate funds in the $12,000 to $16,000 range for the Center.
