This year has made many of us reflect on how we can make a difference to our communities. Our lives have been changed so much by the virus with many of us are separated from our loved ones. It makes me even more grateful that I was able to be with my father a couple of years ago when he spent his final days at Te Omanga hospice in comfort. I am forever grateful for the care and love he received there.
For this reason, I have decided with several friends to organise a fundraising event for the hospice. Because art is our shared passion and has helped us through so many difficult times, the focus will be specifically on artworks.
We have a range of artwork from local artists donated for this cause. The event will be run as a silent auction at the Dowse Museum on 21st Nov @ 4pm.
For those who attend, there will be competitive bidding on small artworks, as well as food, drink and live entertainment supplied.
