Following two years of Covid-19 cancelled and restricted Fund Raising Events we are pleased to launch once again the DTP Fine Art Auction in an effort to raise much needed funds and donations that go to maintain and support all the residents at Dar tal-Providenza at Lapsi, and its community homes.
This support is certainly not possible without the generosity and assistance of our benefactors, who year after year come forward to contribute, assist and donate time, resources and money to ensure that the mission of Dar tal-Providenza and the vision of our founder Mgr. Azzopardi, is kept alive, while also striving to giving so much more than just a home to all its residents.
This year’s auction will be held online, on the 1st of January, during our Festa ta’ Ġenerożità. The intention behind this initiative is to avoid any cancellation or restrictions that may be announced by the Health Authorities.
The lots in the auction will be exhibited at the Parliament Building Foyer, Valletta from the 15th November till the 24th December. This has once again been made possible due to the continued patronage of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dr Anglu Farrugia. The display will be open from 09:00 till 16:00, Monday to Friday. Entry to the Parliament Foyer for viewing will be strictly against presentation of your identification card and your vaccination certificate.
This year Dar tal-Providenza is also pleased to announce that the Online Auction is being organised in collaboration with Belgravia Auctions, who are supporting us with their online presence and auction experience.
