Samba Pelo Mar are hosting an Art Auction in memory of Jon Bird, dearly loved artist, photographer, cartoonist and local campaigner.
Save the date! It's part pop up exhibition, part wine and canapés, part chance to bid on some brilliant work by wonderful artists and all about the celebration of a man who supported the arts throughout his life. There are excellent raffle prizes to be won alongside the chance to see and bid on the artwork.
All proceeds from the auction go toward our fundraising target for Pilgrim's Hospices.
In this, our 10th year, we are aiming to raise £10,000 for the Pilgrims Hospice. You can see how we’re doing at http://www.justgiving.com/samba-pelo-mar.
£10 entry includes a glass of wine, canapes, a bid paddle, and a fab evening of celebrating the arts.
Jon was a great supporter of the band in many ways especially keeping up spirits and making everyone laugh. Daphne, Jon’s wife, has also been a member and supporter from the beginning. We all miss him very much.
We would like to thank all the many artists who have contributed their work – paintings, photographs, drawings, cartoons, pottery, jewellery and fabric art. We are also grateful to all our local businesses for the donation of meals and goods for the raffle.
