The majority of the artists will be present at the luncheon, which will give guests the opportunity to discuss the artists’ bespoke pieces with their creators.

The Bespoke Art Auction is aimed at raising funds for children with disabilities in the underprivileged areas of the Western Cape. All funds raised will be divided between Little Angels Home and Senecio.

Both Non-Profit-Organisations based in the Helderberg basin.

The Bespoke Art Auction is part of a collaborative community initiative titled “Standing Together for Those Who Can’t” created by Little Angels and Senecio in support of mutual funding programs designed to maximise reach to children in need. All the funds raised at the Bespoke Art Auction will be evenly distributed between Little Angels & Senecio.

More about the causes:

Little Angels provides a home for 14 children that require special care and nurturing as a result of their mental and/or physical disabilities. Little Angels aim to provide a safe haven for these children and ensure that they receive the correct and proper medication and treatment, special care that their parents often cannot afford to provide.

Senecio supports children with physical disabilities in underprivileged communities in the Western Cape and empower their families and caregivers, by providing therapeutic intervention (done by Physio – Occupational – and Speech therapists) and training of carers at Special Care Centres. They establish temporary outreach clinics and conduct home visits for children who do not have access to Care Centres and offer Hambisela training for facilitators, parents, caregivers and individuals with Cerebral Palsy.
