You might remember I had a little post here about a month ago, asking people to support an art sale at the Hunt Museum in Limerick.
It was a great success, I’m glad to tell you, with €6,000 raised on the night, and a further €700 in sales over the following weeks, all going to the Mid-West Cancer Foundation, which does wonderful work in supporting patients and needs every cent it can scrape together.
Many local artists donated their work , as well as some chancers like myself. There are too many to name individually, but they know who they are. Thanks also to the local businesses who gave prizes for a raffle that raised something like €1,200. Perhaps the quirkiest spot prize was a voucher from Ulli Hueber, tattoo artist. I’ll bring you a picture of that when I get hold of it.
It was a nice, friendly evening in the Hunt Museum, with nibbles, wine and pictures for sale. If you were looking for a bargain, you came to the right place, and if you just wanted to relax in the evening sun, look no further.
And here’s the committee handing over a cheque for €6,700. The plan is that this will become an annual event.
Well worth supporting.
