The 23rd Annual CMRF Wine and Art Auction

The Annual CMRF Wine and Art auction attracts art and collectable wine buyers from all over Canterbury, to bid for (and hopefully acquire!) art works from some of New Zealand's most well known artisits and to add to their cellars from the best vintages and collectable wines from around New Zealand and the world.

This year, the auction will benefit the research of Dr Julia Rucklidge at Canterbury University.  Julia's project looks at the role of good nutrition in the control of ADHD in children and the application of micronutrients in the treatment of depression.  Julia's work has been in the media several times as the results she is getting for children and families are very exciting.  You can listen to a TedX talk given by Julia in 2015 on the subject here  You can read the full press release here

If you would like to attend this event, you can contact our Fundraising and Events Manager, Caroline on or call 03 3531 245 and we will send you out a ticket order form.

If you are an artist who would like to donate a work for sale or a wine maker wishing to contribute, we want to hear from you!  Contact Caroline on the email address above.
