2018 - Black Tie Gala Dinner & Art Auction
To celebrate Maxim’s 5th birthday we hoped to raise R165 000 to allow us to provide 5 local children with a years worth of ongoing NeuroMovement therapy.
On 03rd October 2018, 120 guests braved the suddenly icy temperatures to celebrate Maxim’s 5th birthday and join us for a Gala dinner and art auction at The Bridge Venue, Muldersdrift. This is also the venue where Maxim’s parents were married.
Everyone dressed up and this was indeed a glamorous affair. Art work was donated by such luminary artists as Yiull Damaso and Jon Stone with Ibi Art and the White House gallery donating beautiful works and artifacts.
Imre Lamprecht from JHB Warehouse auctioneers donated her time and talent and ensured that the auction was fun and profitable
Craig Urbani treated guests to a musical interlude and a great evening was had by all.
Many Skapies found homes as did the beautiful artwork.
We managed to raise R105 000 towards our goal of R165 000. The remainder of the funds were raised through direct donations to the foundation and we managed to offer 6 children therapy for a full year in 2019.
