A fundraising arts extravaganza
…and viewing of a major private art collection
Friday 29 July 2016, 6pm - 8:30 pm
The Creative and Performing Arts Centre at Scots College is our special venue for a wonderful evening of the arts and to raise funds for a special conservation project associated with Te Papa’s recent acquisition Les Sauvages de la Mer Pacifique. Our extravaganza evening features a privileged viewing of the Aloysius and Eileen Teh Art Collection, canapés and mulled wine to keep you warm on this winter’s evening, while music performed by talented Scots College pupils will entertain. And in great company, you can have the fun of a silent auction with a wide range of unique and tempting prizes, including a Nikau voucher, a garden package with three hours of gardening help, gourmet hampers, massages and more.
Opened four years ago this $15 million building is an impressive facility with a focus on creative and performing arts, graphics, music and drama. Located in the eastern suburb of Strathmore Park with neighbours including Weta Digital and Park Road Post Productions, the school has aligned themselves with the film and sound industry.
Please do give this special event and project your generous support. You can make a donation or have a bid in our Silent Auction.
