Silent Auction for JAPAN – Report from Kaori Homma

by Geoff Hall on April 18, 2011



Hi,

I am back from Budapest.

I would like to report that the Silent auction went very well and we have raised more than 760,000HUF. The fund will go straight into Japan Red Cross.

Considering the poor economy and the standard of living in Hungary, which is not quite yet  up with the rest of Europe, the above amount raised in one afternoon in the contemporary art sector is apparently very good.


The local artists were all very surprised to find out the result. I am simply grateful for all the support and help we have revieved for this event.

The artists were also saying that they would like to participate if something like this is happening in London or elsewhere, they are keen to help again and indeed, we will continue the effort and I will be updating the progress on our fund rasing effort on a regular basis so please check up on our blog:

I would like to thank you for your kind support.

Kaori Homma
