In June, the Chubb Charitable Foundation – Bermuda pledged its support and became a corporate sponsor of the Gombey Gallery at the Chewstick Culture Hub.

Following the fire that destroyed the facility, Chubb employees rallied to help with a fundraising drive. Together with matching funds from the Foundation, donations totalled $6,300.

The exhibition will feature artefacts salvaged from the fire allowing attendees an intimate look at some of the damaged items and learn more about Chewstick’s mission.

Funds raised by the Art Auction will benefit The Chewstick Foundation and will feature the works of Graham Foster, Antoine Hunt, Trevor Todd, Samantha Gosling, Amanda Temple, Ami Zanders, Stephan Johnstone and many more.

In addition, live performances will take place during the opening, showcasing the range of talents that Chewstick supports within the community.
