Original works of art from leading New Zealand artists will be on display and available for you to bid on, including the talents of; Clare Matthews, Bruce Mahalski, DSide, Sean Duffle, Flox, Michael McCormack, Donna Cross, Juliet Best, Alfred Memelink, Brian Nelson, Bruce Luxford, Liz Ritchie, Christie Wright, Mica Still,  Mellissa Young, Helen Casey and Jack Candlish.

This brilliant array of artists created pieces of art out of actual materials extracted from the old club house before demolition. Other pieces were inspired by the amazing South Coast we all love. All will go under the hammer to raise funds for the club.

After being exhibited in February and March in a prominent Wellington location, the artwork will go on show for the last time at the gala evening. This is an exclusive opportunity to meet the artists, enjoy the entertainment, and partake of the nibbles along with a selection of premium beers from Parrot Dog and  fine wines from Cambridge Road.

The evening will also feature the auctioneering skills of Malcolm Morris.
