Over 200 guests turned out at Sabina Ibiza, in the heart of the island, where internationally acclaimed DJs such as Lauren Lane, MK and Senzala delivered the musical backdrop for the event. BBC1’s Bargain Hunt TV expert and international auctioneer Richard Madley took control of proceedings and auctioned off pieces from Irish artist Robyn Ward’s thought-provoking Plastic nation collection. The artist dedicated a year of his life and work on the collection and each piece of the collection has a market value of $20,000, raising a remarkable amount of money for the charity. The money raised will be disseminated between two causes, which will be determined by followers and friends of MAAC and their ambassadors and will be determined through online voting through social media. The five short listed causes are…
