AUCTION NIGHT AT VIVI
£88,800 raised for centre point charity
On 24th June 2019, rhubarb was delighted to welcome guests to VIVI restaurant for a very unique charity auction.
The original Centre Point letters, were re-imagined by incredibly talented artists and then were auctioned individually by The Auction Collective in collaboration with Christie’s.
Almacantar, the property company behind the redevelopment, collaborated with Patrick Morey-Burrows of ArtSource on various commissions at Centre Point and approached him for ideas on the restoration of the original letters.
Each letter was given to an artist to appropriate. The finished letters were exhibited at Centre Point’s VIVI restaurant and Christie’s auction house, before being auctioned, with the proceeds going to the UK’s leading youth homeless charity Centrepoint.
The auction raised £88,800 with 100% percent of the lots sold, a fantastic result, and all the proceeds will be donated to the charity Centrepoint to help them continue their work to give homeless young people a future in the capital and the rest of the UK.
