Fundraisers – Art for Gaza


Posted 2 months ago in Arts & Culture Features

Cirillo’s

The Art for Gaza exhibition held recently raised €171,620 for Médecins Sans Frontières. An incredible accomplishment made possible by Whytes Auctioneers, The Copperhouse and the Art for Gaza organizers.

The drive, in order to aid MSF in their work in Gaza, helped to fund essential humanitarian work, and saw 117 lots selling for generous public bids.

Some highlights from the works sold included lyrics to ‘Nightswimming’ by R.E.M., handwritten by Michael Stipe himself, an art piece by the late Shane MacGowan and photographs and costumes from Game of Thrones actor Liam Cunningham.

ART FOR GAZA posters by Irish designer Eilidh Brosnahan raised an additional €3,200 and are still on sale for €20 including postage. Please support if you can via Revolut.
