Cape Town – Esteemed wildlife artist, Fuz Caforio, the Cape Leopard Trust Foundation and the Art Curator Gallery hosted their first combined fundraising event, The Art of Conservation, at Lourensford Wine Estate, on Saturday 16 September 2017.
VIP guests, partners and sponsors were treated to wine and canapes as well as a personal meet and greet with Fuz Caforio and the Cape Leopard Trust team while MC and well-known Global Adventure and Leopard Ambassador, Braam Malherbe, inspired guests throughout the night.
The Art of Conservation auction event was Fuz Caforio’s first solo exhibition in South Africa since 1999, and it will run and remain open to the public until 20 October. As a strong believer in using his art to raise funds for conservation, this was the ultimate event for Fuz, as a wildlife artist, to get involved in.
The auction raised a substantial amount, however, contributions are still open for those who would like to make a donation to this special cause. This can happen in two ways:
1. Limited edition Cape Leopard Wine Collections are available in Chardonnay and SMV range. This range was specifically created for this occasion and R290 will get you the package.
2. Raffle tickets cost R100 each and you stand a chance to win Natural Art Wooden Bowls (valued at R380 each), Three Potters and a Painter Dinner Set valued at R35 000 and Whimsical Collections life size canvas print of Leopard at Leisure (valued at R6500). The raffle will continue to run until the end of September and can be purchased at the Art Curator Gallery (cash or card) or via EFT (reference: CLT Raffle and your name).
