In October 2015, PND held its second Gallery Night, with the generous support of Clayton Utz, Eugene and staff, Radio Rentals, Pizzini Wines, Darren Henry Photography, ACSO, Mission Australia and all who donated gifts for the auction.
In attendance were over 100 guests, including David MacKenzie, Associate Professor at Swinburne University as our key note speaker and David McGettigan, an inspirational artist with a lived experience of homelessness.
On display were around 40 pieces of artwork by homeless artists from Mission Australia (Sydney) and ACSO (Melbourne). We are pleased to say that over 80% of the artwork was sold, needless to say the artists received sales proceeds for their efforts.
Thank you for a live entertaining auction which was conducted by Auctioneers from Nelson Anderson Real Estate on the evening, to raise much needed funds for PND to sustain its activities. Great fun was had by all!
Project New Dawn would like to thank all the guests, supporting partner organisations as well our working volunteers for their marvellous help on the night, pre night and post night. Without this input it would be very difficult to have everything running as smoothly as witnessed on the evening.
Major thank you to the Board who as always done an amazing job with organising, planning, marketing, commitment and post event tasks.
