x 10and5 are raising funds for immediate aid in the fight against COVID-19 by helping Witkoppen Health and Welfare Clinic
in its work in South Africa’s most disenfranchised communities. Donating to this cause will give you the chance to win this original sculpture by Singer
, whom is represented by THK Gallery, titled “Apollo’s Murmur.”
So how does this work?
Donation denominations are in R250 increments, and you can donate as much as you wish, each donation equals 1 donation coupon, which Jake will pick at random to win the Apollo’s Murmur artwork in a live Artist Interview hosted on the 25th of May.
All donations will receive an invite to the live artist interview.
Donations over R2,000 (i.e. 8 tickets) will also be eligible for a second draw of one of Jake’s drawings.
When do donations close?
Donations close on 25 May 2020 at 09:00.
The live donation handover and draw will happen on 25 May 2020 at 11:00.
What if I want to donate more?
Is my donation tax deductable?
Unfortunately not – 10and5 is not a registered charity and is merely facilitating the fundraising process.
