CARBONDALE -- Folks gathered to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Longbranch Café and Bakery. 

General Manager Elaine Ramseyer said they are using this time to give back by serving their local community through art workshops and other initiatives.

This year also marks their 18th year involved with the For Kids’ Sake Art Auction. Ramseyer explained how the fundraiser supports children's orphanages and schools in Bangladesh.

"We also gather artwork from established artists, artists from around the world, it's really a compilation of local art by kids but also by adults as well, again as a community, everyone can support," Ramseyer said.

The closing celebration for the art auction is April 27th and that will be last day for anyone to bid on the artwork. Click here for more information.
