SEVENTH ARI FUNDRAISER

The Seventh Committee have clearly decided that this Christmas, there is no better gift of giving than a gift of art. The punters concurred, with incredible artworks leaping from the walls to stuff Santa’s stockings all over Fitzroy.

Our latest, favorite news stories are the signing faker, at Nelson Mandela’s funeral, standing right next to Barack Obama, saying god knows what with his confidently flaying arms…. And we’re all partial too to Higella and all the gossipy tit-bits from inside the life of a mogul advertising art collector and a celebrity chef, played out in the Dock. This is where conversation turned at the incredibly convivial Annual Seventh Fundraiser, hosted by The Workers Club.

The art was great, bargains were had, excellent prizes were won (like 2 shots of Tequila at the Bar), the music was sweet, and Seventh raised a whole lot of cash to maintain its excellent program into 2014. Seventh aims to facilitate creative networks, and they sure were facilitated at this lovely evening. Back Slap Back Slap Proud Face.
