Art and Environment mix in well Otaki
October 2014

During the recent annual Otaki River Walkover hosted by The Friends of the Otaki River an inivative fundraising opportunity was undertaken. During morning tea at Chrystall's Bend the 150 strong crowd saw a new fundraising initiative for FOTOR in the shape of an art auction, made possible by the generous donation of an original painting of Chrystall's Lagoon by Levin artist Grace Goss. The hosts were delighted to see the auction won by FOTOR's own Peter Pope. This raised $850 while the sale of five books on the history of the Otaki River added another $150, totalling a $1,000 to add to the group's restoration funds. The fundraiser was a lot of fun and was well conducted by entertaining auctioneer Peter Jensen.
