Event Details


Yuga Cafe & Floral Gallery will be hosting a charity auction on Thursday, 7 April to raise funds for the Japan disaster relief. The auction, to be held at the café located at 172 St Johns Road, Glebe, will start at 6:00 pm and feature Japanese and Australian artworks showcased monthly at the Yuga Cafe & Floral Gallery who have so kindly donated these for auction. Auction hosts Setsuko Yanagisawa from Yuga Floral Design and Ben Crisafulli from Yuga Café hope to raise at least $10,000 through the auction.

A lot of artists have been donating their beautiful artworks to support our Japan Disaster Charity Auction night these included Sumie, Oil painting, mixed media, aboriginal painting, photography, Japanese Calligraphy, Ikebana lesson voucher & craft work.

Yuga Café Gallery will host the evening and sponsor Japanese canapés, provide a stunning venue and friendly wait staff.

Wines have been generously donated by Top wines Australia and Vintage Blue Cellars.

Entertainment on the night will feature:

·        Koto Play by Sawai Koto School

·        Shakuhachi and Taiko by Australian Musician Felicity and her friends

·        Ikebana demonstration will be held by Setsuko Yanagisawa (Yuga Floral Design)

Setsuko, who was born in Japan and studied floral design in Japan, Europe and Australia, said the auction is a good way to showcase the beauty of Japanese art while supporting a greater cause. The artworks we will feature during the auction will each be unique in style.

Tickets for the auction can be purchased for $50 and include Japanese light refreshments and drinks on the night.

All proceeds from the sales of tickets and artworks will be donated direct to the Japanese families in immediate need through the Japanese Red Cross Society.
