ART ATTACK: Taranaki CanTeen youth worker Kat Angelo with donated art items for auction.

The art pieces are in but CanTeen Taranaki still has more than 100 tickets to sell for its inaugural art auction fundraiser.

Twenty tickets have been sold but youth worker Kat Angelo says there are still another 130 up for grabs.

Taranaki artists Barbara Clegg, Graham Kirk, Glenda West, Chris Fuller and Peter Lambert are among those who have donated artwork for the auction.

There will be 40 pieces for sale during the evening and Mrs Angelo hopes to raise $20,000 on the night.

Pamphlets advertising the auction were handed out a month ago but response has so far been quiet, Mrs Angelo says.

CanTeen is a non-profit organisation that supports young people with cancer.

Funds from the evening will stay in Taranaki to pay for various activities ranging from monthly get-togethers to creating care packages for its members.

"It's about lighting their day with little things," Mrs Angelo says.

The auction is on March 21 at the New Plymouth Rangers Soccer AFC clubrooms in Merrilands, starting 7pm.
