On March 9th, the Union Club hosted the inaugural event The Auction in support of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. It was a fun evening with over 115 art lovers attending. Club Member, Alison Ross, owner of Kilshaw’s Auctioneers, presided over sale of 46 lots, entertaining the guests during the introductions and bidding on every lot.
More than $15,500 was raised for the Art Gallery; the funds will help support making the Art Gallery’s extensive collection more available online to our community.
The Auction was held under the Union Club’s Art+Fare banner. Art+Fare4 will be held on September 22nd and will have an exciting revised format for the evening. Art+Fare has so far raised over $65,000 for the Children and Family Programs at the AGGV.
