Creativity overflows at Auckland’s largest annual art market The Original Art Sale – an important event on every art-lovers calendar.
Manukau’s TelstarClear Pacific events centre will host the Original Art Sale Gala Night and will be transformed into a bustling art supermarket with more than 1,200 artworks looking for a new home.
But amongst the fun and glamour is also a cause, as all proceeds from the ticket sales for the gala night will be donated to the Kidz First Children’s Hospital.
Guests at The Original Art Sale Gala night will make a real difference to the health of a family as well as enjoying a glass of wine and enjoying fabulous nibbles.
They will also have first pick of outstanding works from emerging artists as well as those recognised in the art scene both locally and nationwide.
There will be something for all tastes and budgets with prices ranging from $100 to $5,000.
Proceeds from this fabulous event will be used to support an initiative which retro-fits insulation into the homes of low income families with high health needs.
Infectious diseases, child poverty and overcrowding are all prevalent in the Counties Manukau community.
Providing families with warmer, drier and healthier living environments is one of many proactive initiatives that will stop preventable illnesses for the most vulnerable people – the young and the old.
Research has shown that children residing in the newly insulated homes have 51 per cent less time off school due to ill health.
Adults in an insulated home have a 38 per cent reduction in time off work due to health issues and the cost of heating their home is significantly reduced.
