Ron Esplin Painting Auctioned at Attitude Awards Benefits Canteen by $1100 - 12th Dec 2014

Ron Esplin Painting Auctioned at Attitude Awards Benefits Canteen by $1100: 

The 2014 Attitude Awards were held on the first of December at The Viaduct Events Centre.
It was a glittering red carpet event attended by a crowd of 600 and presided over by Simon Dallow.
It was an evening filled with excitement and emotion when we celebrated the achievements of nominated Kiwis who live with disability.

Gala Dinner also marked World Disability Day:

The Gala dinner was punctuated by the awards ceremony, and world class singers and acts and it was no co-incidence that December the third was also World Disability Day.
The evening was televised for broadcast on TV3 and among the nominees was my wife Julie who was one of three nominees for The Attitude Spirit of Attitude Award.
Julie was pipped at the post, but that did not detract from flying up to Auckland for a couple of days, staying in the swanky Sofitel Viaduct Harbour Hotel, and seeing my daughter Melanie and grandchildren.

Braille Art Work "OK" now owned by the Mad Butcher:

During the course of the evening, they auctoned my braille art painting "OK" for $1100 which I had donated, and the money went towards Canteen. The painting now graces the home of The Mad Butcher, whose wife Janice made the winning bid.
