blind date: sealed bid art auction

CA$40.00

Thank you to the 200 people who attended our fundraiser at the Roundhouse on October 19. We are pleased to announce that we raised $10,000 in net proceeds. New this year, we changed the format of our fundraiser. Guests bid on donated artwork by filling out a bid sheet and placing it in a sealed box. They did not see what others bid. The highest bidder won. We featured a wide selection of art on paper (prints, photographs, drawings, paintings, collages, etc) by Vancouver’s top artists. Special thanks to the Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation, the Vancouver Art Gallery, and the HR MacMillan Space Centre for their donations.
