A total of zl.66,000 was raised at the third Seed of Art-Garden of Hope charity auction of artworks and collector's items, organized by the Garden of Hope Psycho-Oncology Foundation. The entire proceeds will go to preparing an integrated "psychoeducation and therapy" program that will offer support to recovering cancer patients and their loved ones next year.

The auction, hosted by Piotr Lengiewicz, head of the Rempex Auction House, featured 133 works by Polish and foreign artists, 128 of which were sold.

The auctioned items included paintings by Joanna Pawlik, Dorota Buczkowska, Mikołaj Kasprzyk, Dariusz Mlącki, Bogna Gniazdowska and Bogna Czechowska; photographs by Aneta Grzeszykowska, Yola Zuchniewicz and Jerzy Kośnik; a poster by Rafał Olbiński; screen prints by Andrzej Pągowski; ceramics by Sylwester Ambroziak; and a sculpture by Iwona Krajnik.

"The auction is further proof that art can be an excellent way to support our efforts to raise funds to help people battling cancer," said Monika Popowicz, head of the Garden of Hope foundation.

During an event preceding the auction, foundation supporters received the titles of Foundation Friend and Foundation Sponsor. The event was hosted by TV presenter Dorota Wellman, while the Behemot Quartet chamber act provided the music.

The Garden of Hope Psycho-Oncology Foundation was established in 2004 as a place where people with cancer and their families can obtain psychological help and other forms of support in their fight against the disease.
