Spring Fling

Spring Fling – a Thank You to our Supporters

Due to the impacts of Covid-19, what would have been the 27th iteration of the Wine & Art Auction event could unfortunately not go ahead in 2020.

Instead, we invited our loyal supporters for an exclusive invite-only evening of thanks and celebration.

The board of the CMRF decided to fund the recipient of this auction award, Professor Gail Gillon from the University of Canterbury Child Well-Being Research Institute, despite there not being a fundraising event able to be held this year. Prof Gillon’s team gave us an in depth look at what this support means for their research work for young Cantabrians, their literacy and subsequent development and well-being.

Drinks & canapes were enjoyed by all, and live music provided by local jazz duo “Vintage Blue”, while we connected with other supporters of this long-standing event, including artists, wine makers and patrons, as well as the board and staff of the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation.
