Galway Daily news art auction raises over €10,000 for COPE Galway

An art auction held in Clifden raised over €10,000 for COPE Galway to combat Galway’s homelessness crisis.

The annual ‘Help Galway’s Homeless’ event was held in Foyle’s Hotel in Clifden in December to raise money in support of the work COPE  does to tackle homelessness.

The event included an art auction, raffle, and cake sale to bring in people of every interest, and raised a total of €10,889.

COPE expressed their gratitude to Patricia Keane, Ellen van Boeijen & Sarah McLoughlin for organising this “tremendous initiative” for yet another year.

Also up for thanks were “the numerous amazing artists who donated their work for auction” and the businesses in the area who contributed prizes and for the raffle and brought in cakes for sale.

“Most of all thank you to all those who attended and supported this event! Amazing work – thank you!”
