Art auction

Works by well-known Cape Town artists including Richard Scott, Kevin Hector, Tony de Freitas and Anny Maddock, recently went on auction to raise funds for The Goldilocks and The Bear Foundation, an NPO that works to remove mental health barriers to education. The event took place in collaboration with the Lindy van Niekerk Art Gallery and auctioneer Anton Welz from Stephan Welz & Co. confirmed that R221 000 was raised from the artworks at the black tie event. A further R14 300 was raised through cash contributions and pledges. All proceeds will go towards the foundation’s work at underprivileged schools where they provide free screening for ADHD, anxiety, depression, visual- and hearing problems, and developmental problems for children. Seen at the auction were Dr Darren Green, of Bellville, Professor Renata Schoeman, of Bellville, and Anton Welz, of Hout Bay.
