MGA SAYS THANK YOU!
The 2017 MGA Gala Fundraising Dinner & Auction: Eden was a black-tie event was attended by 140 guests including politicians, community leaders, gallery supporters and collectors who collectively celebrated the MGA’s ongoing achievements. A wonderfully festive atmosphere was accompanied with fine food from Food & Desire and superb wine and beer provided by new Program Partners Chain of Ponds and Bright Brewery. MC, James Mathison charmed the room with his distinctive wit; guests enjoyed the sounds of the ultra-cool Velvet Archers and auctioneer Will Fowles pitted bidders against each other in a lively and competitive auction.
We are pleased to announce that the event raised over $100,000 from the auction of items donated by some of Australia’s most outstanding photographers, as well as a number of non-photographic luxury items, a silent auction; raffle, cash donations and ticket sales. Funds raised will support MGA’s collection management, exhibition development and free education programs.
MGA would like to thank all the people and organisations involved that made this night a success.
