Chubb shows its support for Chewstick

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

An art auction on Thursday, October 13 is set to raise funds for the Chewstick Foundation.

Organised by insurance company Chubb, the event will feature works by Chewstick artists as well as artefacts salvaged from the July fire at the cultural hub, which destroyed its Front Street premises.

The auction will take place at the Chubb Building from 5.30pm to 7.30pm, and will also feature live musical performances, while an art exhibition will run until Thursday, November 10 at the same venue.

After a fundraising drive, Chubb also handed Chewstick a cheque for $6,300 to further support the cause.

Chewstick executive director Gavin Smith said that everyone involved with the foundation was “deeply grateful” for all the support it had received in its efforts to rebuild.
