Travel draw 2019

Win luxury prizes and support the Gallery

The annual Travel Draw is exclusive to Art Gallery Society members. It offers great prizes in recognition of members’ commitment to the Gallery, and above all, it helps put art on the walls.

We rely on the generosity of individuals to raise money for works of art through fundraising initiatives such as this.

We hope you appreciate the 10 luxury prize packages from 37 supporters. This year’s first prize includes your chance to travel Business Class with a friend to Moscow flying Singapore Airlines. Please treat yourself, friends and family to as many tickets as you can. Our promise to you is that we will ensure every dollar raised from ticket purchases goes towards helping the Gallery acquire artworks for the collection.

Thank you for your continued support and good luck in the draw!
