Provenance Properties Cayman Islands hosted an online auction of art and luxury home goods which raised $24,000+; funds were matched by R3 Cayman Foundation.
Provenance Properties recently hosted an online auction to raise funds for the nonprofit organisation, Cayman’s Acts of Random Kindness. The auction, which took place on 23 July 2020, was innovatively hosted through an entirely digital platform.
As the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in the Cayman Islands, the auction evoked the spirit of the Christie’s name as the world’s oldest auction house. Whilst it may not have included the rare art, antiques and jewels that are featured in global Christie’s auctions, it did feature works by Cayman artists, staycations, gift certificates for local services and experiences and luxury home goods.
The auction raised over US$24,000, an amount matched by R3 Cayman Foundation for a total amount raised of more than $48,000 in support of ARK’s vital efforts to provide food relief to families in need. R3 was established in May 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and is committed to the sustainable future of the Cayman Islands through assisting with readiness, relief and recovery in times of crisis.
“We were so impressed with the range of goods that were donated,” says Sheline Chandi, senior marketing coordinator at Dart, who helped organise the auction on behalf of Provenance Properties. “Over 100 items were donated and about 150 people took part in the bidding process, which resulted in a meaningful and fun event for everyone. It also provided a great outlet for home owners who had spent time decluttering their space whilst sheltering in place.”
Chandi notes the auction is set to become an annual event and one of several ways that the brokerage will continue to support relief and recovery efforts in the Cayman Islands.
