Hum Art Gala 2014 round-Up

We had a successful and fun first Art Gala here at Hum Salon on the 29th of November 2014. There was a nice little crowd in attendance for the auction and the majority of the works on offer were sold.

We would like to thank the whole volunteer team that did such a great job in putting this event together! Special thanks to Finn McLennan-Elliott for organising the wonderfully entertaining music for the night.

Thanks to our sponsors Thornton Auctions, Schupepe Stretch Tents & Canopies, Kahurangi Wine and Epic Brewing Company.

Thanks to all the artists who donated their work to be auctioned.

Congratulations to successful bidders: Sir James Wallace, Denver Lawson, Peter Wales, Mary Kennedy, Graeme Halse, Hugh & Sarah Patterson, Sandra Jenkins, Sara Jenkins and Rory Gilfillam who took home some art and thus helped us to raise a total of $7815.00 for our charity.
