There was quite a bit of interest this morning at the  auction for the building on the corner of Marine Terrace and Cliff Street in Fremantle.

It is a beautiful building opposite the Shipwreck Museum and one minute away from Bathers Beach.

But I did not win the Lotto jackpot again on Thursday. ; >(

Posted in earthquake, fremantle, nepal by freoview on June 12, 2015

A reminder that tomorrow evening the Fremantle community will try to raise money for the earthquake victims in Nepal at the RESTORING NEPAL CONCERT at the Fremantle Sailing Club. It starts at 7 pm, Saturday June 13 and tickets are only $ 25.00 so come along for an evening of music by the MUTIMA BAND and EMPIRE BLUES and more.

There will be a silent auctions with some great items for sale such as a five day stay in Bali, a fully signed jumper by all the Fremantle Dockers footy players, etc.

The Buddhist Gyuto monks of Tibet will be in attendance so maybe this will be the rare chance of seeing them dance.

The bar will be open and there will be food for sale, so no reason whatsoever to stay at home!

Please spread the word through your network as every dollar will help to get shelter and clean water to the affected people.

Posted in art, fremantle, homeless by freoview on June 10, 2015

The Fremantle Soroptimists did a splendid job fundraising in their recent art auction. Here the message I received from them:

Thanks to participating artists, generous bidders and sponsors, and a small army of volunteers, the turnover for the Help the Homeless Art Auction at Fremantle Town Hall last Saturday was just over $72,000 in less than three hours, with several additional sales still in negotiation.

Works still available include artists such as Amanda Shelsher, Anne McCaughey, Jo Darvall, Theo Koning, Geoff Wake, Chris McClelland, Tim Macfarlane Reid and Pippin Drysdale.

art auction

The annual Soroptimist International Fremantle HELP THE HOMELESS ART AUCTION is on again this Saturday June 6 at the Fremantle Town Hall. Register from 3 pm and auction starts at 5.30 pm.

There are too many artists who generously donated their works to mention them all, but check out the poster above. Names like Salvadore Dali, Robert Juniper and Elizabeth Durack should get the attention of serious art collectors, so don’t miss out to support the homeless and get yourself a great artwork or two.

Funds raised will be going to the Freo Street Doctor, St Pat’s My Sister’s Place and the Fremantle Multicultural Centre.

DONATE AND HELP RESTORE NEPAL

Posted in earthquake, fremantle, nepal by freoview on May 10, 2015

Nepal aid

At the Fremantle fundraising concert for the earthquake affected people in Nepal we will also do a silent auction, so hopefully the Fremantle business and art community will support that with generous donations. Hotel stays, dinner vouchers, artworks, and things that might raise significant money is what we are looking for. We already have a wonderful five days stay at the Blue Buddha villa in Bali that alone is worth attending the concert for at the Fremantle Sailing Club on June 13.

Of course we are also very happy to just receive donations from the corporate sector, maritime industry, City of Fremantle, Fremantle Ports, the tourism  and development industry, etc.

You can contact me via email roel.loopers@iinet.net.au or call 0419 850981

HELP THE HOMELESS AND BUY ART

Posted in fremantle by freoview on May 30, 2014

Help the Homeless Art Auction by Soroptimist International of Fremantle at 5pm Saturday 14 June.  Fremantle Town Hall

Viewing: Friday 13 June 3 – 5pm, Saturday 14 June 12noon – 5pm

AUCTION NIGHT RSVP: PH Christine 0438 880 868 Roseanne 9440 0669 or cjohnson@amnet.net.au

Now in its fifth year, the Help the Homeless Art Auction began when Soroptimist International of Fremantle realised the need for funding of services to the homeless was much more than they could provide. “Hence our drive to raise more funds to donate to these worthy recipients,” says Roseanne Thomas, President, Soroptimist International of Fremantle.

The auction night is an experience in itself. “Apart from carefully selected artworks, people are truly amazed by the performance of the Starlight Hotel Choir – a highlight of the night for many, but there’s also something incredibly special about the goodwill that fills the room on the night – a palpable bubble of common purpose and drive to help the homeless.” Lyn DiCiero, Curator.
