A splash of colour, stunning design and funds too…

Action Bequia Ball_GRW_8999The Action Bequia Valentines Ball was held last week and the auction of paintings by Heidi Muller was a great success, with the proceeds going to the Bequia Youth Sailors.

Six of her painting were shown at the event for everyone to see before the auction started and brightened up the Sugar Reef restaurant with their dynamic and colourful designs.During the serving of hors d’ouvres all those coming to the ball had a good opportunity to see the painting up close and decide which they wanted to bid for and which would look good on their wall back at home.

Richard Roxburgh, who along with his team organised the entire event, acted as MC for the evening as well as running the auction and developing lots of interest from the audience. The auction went very well and David and Christine Anderson came in with a final winning bid of US$3,600. A great result.

The proceeds from tickets sales will go to the Action Bequia General Fund to help continue their work across many charitable projects on the island, to improve facilities on Bequia for visitors and locals alike.

Our thanks go to David and Christine for their generosity and to Richard and his entire team of helpers, organisers, supporters and sponsors for making the evening such a great success.
