The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation has announced that its online Incognito Art Sale, which got underway at 10am this morning, has sold out raising €188,040. Monies raised will fund Jack & Jill’s specialist home nursing care to 374 children with life-limiting conditions right across the country, including end-of-life care.
Now that the collection is sold out, the BIG REVEAL will happen tomorrow, Friday April 23, at 12 noon, on www.incognito.ie, when people will be able to see just who painted what. Meanwhile, the artwork bought will be posted directly to purchasers over the coming days.
With an unprecedented level of interest – with almost 12,000 shoppers trying to buy the artwork as the sale got underway – Jack & Jill wishes to acknowledge the patience of shoppers as the website encountered some technical difficulties in coping with the sheer volume of activity. However, delighted members of the public have been receiving notifications of successful purchases throughout the morning and afternoon.
