FUNDRAISING GALA An Evening of African Artistry JOIN US! ACCESS ART AUCTION
VIRTUAL FUNDRAISING AND ART AUCTION GALA

“AN EVENING OF AFRICAN ARTISTRY”

Presented by Simanye Clinic in partnership with Supivaa Medical & Arushvest Capital

Featuring pieces from House of Mandela Art International and curated by RED! Gala for Good.

Simanye Mobile Clinic, in partnership with Arushvest Capital and Supivaa Medical, a division of Supivaa Advisory Group and in collaboration with RED! Gala for Good will be launching a LIVE virtual art auction to raise funds for the clinic in South Africa. The EXCLUSIVE art auction will feature works provided by the House of Mandela Foundation and feature several well-known and upcoming artists from across Africa, curated and hand selected by renowned art curators at RED! Gala for Good.

During the Gala event, we’ll hear from artists and art experts & investors from across Africa and also have the opportunity to network in a cocktail event with our global guests.

We invite the world to Africa (virtually) to experience rarely seen works of the extraordinary Nelson Mandela - pieces that he’s personally sketched and painted, plus other works from the House of Mandela that have been donated exclusively for this auction.

The purpose of the fundraiser is to raise funds for the operations of Simanye Mobile Clinic. The brainchild of Dr. Kim Lamont of South Africa, Simanye Mobile Clinic seeks to become the premier provider of health care services for the missing middle market of Africa. With the use of innovative processes and technology, Simanye Mobile Clinic introduces mobile medical clinics and laboratories bringing primary health and care services to the poorest and hard-to-reach places in Africa.
