A Charity Auction to Benefit Underprivileged Students and Retired Athletes
Sotheby’s, together with HomeArt, Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China (SF&OC) and Hong Kong Olympic Fans Club (HKOFC), is honoured to present Olympic Dreams, a charity auction to benefit the SF&OC Sports Legacy Scheme which supports local underprivileged students, and retired or planning to retire athletes to pursue their dreams in sports. This charity auction is the brainchild of Rosaline Wong who wishes through this event to celebrate the remarkable achievements of Hong Kong’s athletes at the Tokyo Olympics. The auction will demonstrate how art can be used to promote sporting culture and values, and how art and sport can be so meaningfully intertwined.
The auction will be raising funds through the sale of wonderful art donated by artists, collectors and galleries, as well as sporting memorabilia donated by Hong Kong Olympian athletes. Works on offer include a beautiful new series of paintings by Peter McDonald commissioned for the event by HomeArt and themed around the Tokyo Olympics, as well as works by Damien Hirst, Zeng Fanzhi, Simon Birch, Mak Ying Tung2 and Cheung Tsz Hin. Additional highlights include autographed items donated by our Event Ambassadors: a signed foil from fencer Edgar Cheung Ka-Long and a signed artwork by epee fencer Vivian Kong Man-Wai. Also adding to the list is a signed T-Shirt from the Olympic China Diving Team.
