Carter memorabilia to benefit Carter Center

ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta-based Carter Center is holding an auction next month featuring presidential memorabilia to benefit the nonprofit.

The auction in San Diego on March 10 features more than 150 items, including artwork by former President Jimmy Carter, rare Camp David Accords memorabilia and celebrity-autographed guitars.

The auction has been a key fundraiser for the center for 19 years. The highest bid item at the event last year was an original painting by the former president that sold for $150,000.

The auction has both live and silent components. Bidding is accepted via online form or fax.
