23 Aug Fine Chinese Painting Charity Auction 2020 浓墨重彩献爱心
Welcome back! The Fine Chinese Painting Charity Auction was originally scheduled on 18 March but was forced to call off due to the Movement Control Order (MCO). The auction date was actually fell on day one of the MCO. We are coming back after the tough five months of waiting. Regrettably, Joblink Centre, The Society in Aid to the Handicapped didn’t make it but forced to close down due to the unsustainable financial problem. We are equally helpless with the Centre’s trainee. Rotary Club of Penang was supposed to raise fund for Joblink Centre but unfortunately the timing has gone against us.
However, we do not stop here, we are always there for the community. Although it takes a long wait, veteran artist Ian Tan understand our situation and agreed for us to keep his fine Chinese ink paintings for community service purpose. For this upcoming auction, 40% of the proceed will be fully channelled to Penang Rotary Charity Foundation. The Foundation has been supporting our Club’s community services such as the dialysis centre and home nursing.
We don’t ask for donation, we merely encourage you to collect a fine painting while meaningful good deed is fulfilled. Not only Royal Art Gallery but you deserved a fine Chinese ink painting from the veteran artist Ian Tan.
Auction Date : from Saturday, 15 August until Sunday, 23 August 2020
