Silent Auction in Aid of the Ceylon School for the Deaf & the blind

August 24, 2017

The Ceylon School for the Deaf and Blind in collaboration with the Saskia Fernando Gallery presents ‘Silent Auction and Fundraiser of Modern and Contemporary Art’ for the third consecutive year at the Temple Trees auditorium on 24 August 2017. 

 

Differing from the typical setting of an auctioneer calling out for prices and taking a count of raised hands, the organisers are introducing the ‘Silent Auction’ format, a trend popularly used for charity events across the globe, to Sri Lankan audiences with the hope of making this the biggest fundraiser of this sort in the island. 

 

 Marking the third consecutive auction, the event will have 42 works of art exhibited and open for bidding at the end of which the total amount raised will be announced. All proceeds will entirely be directed towards the three residential schools under the Ceylon School for the Deaf and Blind, The School for the Blind, the School for the Deaf at Ratmalana and Nuffield School for the Deaf & Blind at Kaithady Jaffna.
