The Modesto Symphony Orchestra's Cellobration auction of decorated cellos grossed $33,000, said orchestra President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Jan Zdunek.

Seventy-five cellos transformed by area artists were put up for bid on eBay in honor of the orchestra's 75th anniversary. By the time the auction ended Saturday, 57 instruments were purchased, with the highest for $10,000 (Modesto City Councilman Brad Hawn bought his own) and the lowest for $50."
