Past Fundraising Events
Thank you all for your participation!
The ART AID was an exciting virtual auction of paintings generously donated by over 40 artists. The event raised over €8,000 and proceeds were donated to Kamalini Training Centre in New Delhi and Pearlcrest Hospitality Training Institute in Uganda to assist in their Covid-19 relief work. This event featured more than 70 contributions in a variety of mediums from celebrated artists such as Thomas Ryan past president of the Royal Hibernian Academy, Myra Jago, and Judy Carroll Deeley as well as many others. The auction was hosted by Galabid.com, an online platform used by charities worldwide and close to home such as The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.
Funds raised at the event were donated directly to project managers in Kamalini Training Centre in New Delhi and Pearlcrest Hospitality Training Institute in Uganda. Families in these regions have been deeply affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and with their livelihoods damaged many are going hungry as a result. Families in Uganda require €5 to feed themselves for one day but many earn only €1.5 a day, just enough for a single daily meal. Meanwhile, those in New Delhi need just €8 to feed their family for a full week. Money raised during the Art Aid event has helped to alleviate this crisis.
