    In the utterly unlikely event that I win this, do you think the $500 would get myself and a friend to Toronto to make use of the ticket to Montreal?

    On a more serious note, what a fantastic way to support a very worthy cause. My best wishes to the organisers in attracting submissions and supporters.

    I'd be willing to throw a dollar into the pot if you board a train in Melbourne and it ends up in Toronto

    I totally misread that (missed the punctuation) and thought you were only thanking me IF I lived in Victoria, Ontario

    Either way, I do wish you well. I've really enjoyed reading about your projects and plans on here and DPUG.


    And to Martin, that dollar will help immensely, thank you - could you perhaps round up a few million of your nearest and dearest and encourage them also to drop a dollar in the kitty? If you can get it to $3m, we'll give two of that to Bob to spend/share as he pleases and divvy up the remaining million between us. Sound like a plan?

    Ok its getting closer,,, I am in the live auction,, so is a Herb Ritts image, wow, we both were adopted ( means that a private group will match the bid on our prints) You can see all the work for the Live Auction if you click on that heading. I hope some of you get involved, all money raised is dedicated for a very good cause, If you are in Toronto at the end of March let me know I will make sure tickets are available( this event sells out every year) not free tickets, just tickets to buy.

    Elevator is getting involved with the curatial aspect of next year, It would be nice to see some of you get selected, this is a nice stepping stone for emerging artists.

    So an update

    Snap's big event is next Sunday evening... Even before the Live Auction is held they have raised $55.000 in adopt a lot bids.

    I am lucky to be in the live auction part of the show show and over the weekend Edward Day Gallery here in town had a preview of the 63 lots.

    Proudly I can say my piece was situated right below a Herb Ritt's piece and Ansel Adams darkroom Tray image by John Cyr.

    I hope this not my only 15 minutes of fame but boy did it sure feel good.

    I will be working on the live auction side for Snap 2013 and to that effect will be looking for Canadian work from all points east to west , but as well I welcome international submissions.

    If you feel you would like to donate a print and frame for the live auction then send me an email and I can look at your work.

    bob@elevatordigital.ca

    This is a great cause and one Elevator has supported for 5 years and hope to continue with.. I will post images as time moves on showing this great event.
