Art Auction Fundraiser

Fitzroy Kindergarten’s Great Art Auction

Here at Fitzroy Kindergarten we are highly reliant on fundraising to be able to deliver a truly awesome preschool education to the children of Taranaki, and this year we are raising money for computers and maintenance.

Our upcoming fundraising event is The Great Art Auction and the committee is anticipating a sell-out crowd of approximately 120 art enthusiasts from our community. In order to ensure the success of this very important fundraiser, we are seeking donations from local artists. This can be in any medium, paintings, photographs, ceramics or jewellery for example. Generous donors are the key to our fundraising success and your donation will greatly enhance our auction and help raise much needed funds.

The Great Art Auction will be held on Saturday 7th November at the Fitzroy Surf Life Saving Club with doors opening at 6:30pm. We will be selling tickets to the event which will include silent auctions and a live auction. Nibbles and a free wine or juice will be provided to guests on entry and there will be a bar to purchase alcohol. Artwork by Fitzroy Kindergarten children will also be on sale.

Your donation will be listed in our event program and each contributor will have a prominent mention throughout the evening. You will also be promoted through our newsletter as well as on the Kindergarten Facebook page and added publicity leading up to the event. We have a submission date of 1st October for donations to ensure all our artists gain the publicity they deserve.

We will be happy to pick up your donation or it can be delivered to Fitzroy Kindergarten. Please feel free to contact me ( with any questions. All funds raised go directly toward the kindergarten and we hope that we can count on your support. With your contribution we can make our kindergarten a fun and creative place to learn and help shape the lives of our Taranaki children.

Thank you for your time and kind consideration.
