Following up the press release about the Horses being painted for charity which was posted on 07 December 2010, we have more details about what Lucy and other stars will be doing to decorate their horses for charity. Too bad the horses aren't dun coloured instead of white...Lucy could have painted Argo.
At the completion of Auckland Cup Week the painted horses will be auctioned off with the proceeds from each horse going to the charity of its artist’s choice (I'm guessing the money raised from Lucy's horse will go to Starship)
The following was posted at stuff.co.nz:
Marc Ellis and Lucy Lawless are about to take the reins of 18 white horses for charity. The life-size, fibreglass horses left Ellerslie Racecourse yesterday to go to new celebrity owners, including Ellis, Lawless, Karen Walker, and Sara Tetro. The celebrities will decorate their horse, which will then be auctioned off to raise funds for a charity of their choice.
The celebrities have until February to paint their ponies. The horses will then begin popping up around Auckland in surprise locations.
After their mystery tour, they will be auctioned off one at a time during Auckland Cup Week.
