ANZ art auction success
The 2011 Kaleidoscope charity art auction held at ANZ Centre on Tuesday, August 30 was a huge success raising more than $13,000 for ANZ’s registered charity partners.
This year a total of 63 artworks were donated by ANZ employees from Australia, New Zealand, India and Papua New Guinea. Artworks varied from photography to large canvas oil paintings and jewellery.
Paul Bonello, Kaleidoscope auctioneer and ANZ’s senior manager operational risk and compliance, said: “Kaleidoscope represents the various talents among ANZ employees not only within Australia, but across the many regions we operate in. Each year the exhibition gains more momentum, and 2011 was no different with a 20 per cent increase in proceeds from the previous year.”
Senior management from across ANZ also added to their art collections with successful bids from CEO Mike Smith, chief risk officer Chris Page and chief financial officer Peter Marriott.
