Spectrum Art Auction
£59,295 raised at the first in an on-going series of fundraising events for Spectrum.
We are delighted at the success of our first major fundraising event, which will go towards our £8 million target for our ambitious SEA project (Spectrum Education & Arts); a centre of excellence in Cornwall for people with autistic spectrum disorders and their families, as well as carers and professionals.
Among the generous artists to donate were highly acclaimed artists such as Sir Peter Blake and Rolling Stones’ guitarist Ronnie Wood. The real shining lights of the auction were Spectrum’s own service users, who donated ten pieces, all of which sold to London’s most prestigious art enthusiasts.
The night was enjoyed by all and we are overjoyed with the support shown at the event. We want to extend our sincere gratitude to all of the artists who have generously donated work and to all of those people who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this event a success.
This is inclusive of, but not limited to The Saatchi Gallery, Bernie Katz and The Groucho Club, Art and Graft, Paget PR, The Art Auction Committee and PBWC Architects and of course all those who attended the evening and supported us.next
