After 17 years sponsoring the Rotary Club of Victor Harbor Art Show the naming rights of the 2018 Art Show went to Thomas & MacKay Optometrists. Andrew and Janet were estatic with the win who are proud to be part of a great community event.
Chairperson of the art show committee Sue Ellers said the naming rights dinner was a good night and is an opportunity to unite businesses that support the art show.
“The sponsors provide $12,500 to the winning artists and this prize money attracts the quality paintings which we see on display each year,” Sue said.
“We thanks our sponsors so much and the funds raised from the art show all go to community projects.
“They include funds to the Victor Harbor Men’s Shed, Childhood Cancers Bradley’s House which is a holiday getaway for children and families suffering from cancer and assisting students to continue tertiary studies.”
The art show will be held from January 12 to 20, 2018 and is an iconic and historic event for Victor Harbor.
