Charity ART Auction

The Teapot pictured is made from recycled teabags from last years ABMT (2009), my intent was to make an artwork and donate it to the Cancer Council to raise money for research. Personally touched by cancer myself with the loss of my mother has been the inspiration to host this years event via the Charity ART Auction.

My Australia's Biggest Morning Tea - Fundraising day is being presented as a Charity ART Auction with guest speaker Cr Jenny McKay. All Artworks being donated are by local Artists on the Sunshine Coast whose lives have been personally touched by cancer. The local business community has been very supportive with Main Street Gallery in Montville kindly providing the venue to exhibit the artworks and Roger from Roger Loughnan Real Estate being our Auctioneer on the day. Poet's Cafe are supplying small nibbles and tea for one and all, support is growing stronger with each day.
