Saturday, October 19, 2013
Arts Umbrella returns to CBC Vancouver for Splash 2013. Splash is an opportunity for art collectors and enthusiasts to bid on more than 100 works by artists from Vancouver and beyond. Splash is one of Vancouver's highest profile charitable art events, and features an accessible and diverse silent auction, as well as an astounding live auction.
OMG. Thank you for a magical night celebrating Arts Umbrella!
Nearly 500 guests gathered at CBC Vancouver to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Splash, Arts Umbrella's annual art auction and gala on Saturday, October 13th. Together with the help of our generous sponsors, donors, volunteers and guests, we raised $350,000 in net proceeds for Arts Umbrella!
