CGS raffle raises almost £2k
Each year the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) holds a fundraising raffle. This is an important way to support the CGS to put on its many events. Plus purchasers have the chance to win one of a selection of unique, glass-related prizes.
The 2022 raffle raised nearly £2,000 towards the CGS’s anniversary year events, and the committee wish to thank all the artists who generously gave their work, as well as all those who bought tickets.
Artists who donated this time included Charlie McPherson, who donated the impressive bowl shown in the image, Amanda Simmons, and Adam Aaronson, plus several CGS members. There was also the chance to win a sketch by US glass master, Dale Chihuly.
There were 15 winners in total, with Helen Johnson winning Charlie’s bowl. Peter Austin won Dale Chihuly’s drawing, Pam Fyvie won Amanda Simmons’ piece, and Sarah Stutchfield won Adam Aaronson’s. Carol Barlow won Dan Klein’s book donated by Alan J Poole, and other winners were Hannah Gibson, Hannah Facey, Helen Stokes, Katharyn S-R, Kate Pasvol, Angela Ashton, Debbie March, Paul Cameron, Dot Hill and A Popkin.
Thanks again to everyone who bought tickets.
