As the bushfire crisis continues in Australia, Australian Business in Europe (ABIE France) would like to thank all of those who have reached out to express their sympathy and solidarity with Australia. Now, more than ever, we are reminded of the special bond between France and Australia.

On 28th January, ABIE France, with the support of the Australian Embassy, is organising an auction to raise funds for the devastated communities and the massive wildlife rescue effort. A live auction will be held at the Australian Embassy, during the vernissage of the exhibition ‘Longitude, Latitude, Solitude’, large format aerial landscape photographs of Australia by Andrew Vukosav.

Thanks to the generous support of our members and partners, the live auction will be complemented by an online auction which will continue until midnight on 11th February. Monies raised will be donated directly to Red Cross Australia & Wires (wildlife rescue).

Examples of items available for bidding on the 28th of January include:

  • Two of the splendid chairs from the recent Jarracharra Exhibition (donated by the Embassy and Babbarra Women’s Centre)
  • The surfboard on which French champion Jérémy Florès competed in the Quiksilver Pro Hossegor in October 2019, signed by the champion himself (donated by Quiksilver/Euroglass)
  • weekend for four in the chic Alpine retreat, Chalet Savoie Faire in the Tarentaise Valley (donated by Chalet Savoie Faire)

If you would like to attend the auction, please register for the event at http://abie-france.com/events/past-events/upcoming-events-extern/.  Registrations close on Thursday 23rd of January.

For those of you who are unable to attend on the 28th of January we invite you to bid for items online.  The online auction will close on the 11th of February at midnight. The highest bidder for each item will be notified on the 12th of February and asked to transfer the amount bid directly to the charity selected.  Once the winner has produced proof of receipt of payment to the recipient charity, ABIE will put the winner in direct contact with the donor of the prize to arrange collection. Winners may choose to remain anonymous if they wish.

We will shortly be sending you a full list of items for auction, as well as a link to the auction page.  Should you wish to contribute an item for auction please email bushfireappealfrance@gmail.com.
