Up For Auction

I always try to get involved in community events, partly because it is a way of advertising
Ted Coney's Family Portraits and partly because it makes living in Ely a bit more interesting. I have reasantly helped organise an art competition/exhibition at the Babylon Gallery (which is close by) and it was nice to get an aknowlegement in the local papers (along with other shops and businesses) for the small donation that I made to towards the prizes. However, the latest request is a slightly new departure for the business.
Hereward Rotary are organising an Auction as part of a fund raising Barn Dance for the Teenage Cancer Trust. They have asked me to donate free tickets to one of my tours when I reopen in the spring. Will someone see this as a treasured prize I wonder? The event is being led by David Palmer, who I reckon can sell anything. He did after all, auction one of my paintings, 'An Extra Snow Angel' for charity, several years ago.
