Art-X (recently rebranded Harcourts Art-X) has been the major fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Green Meadows for 38 years.
100% of the proceeds from this event are gifted back to the Hawkes Bay Community.
Each year we give away the majority of the proceeds in the form of the Art-X Community Grant. This grant of $20,000 or more, is given to a Hawkes Bay community organisation or charity that makes a substantial impact in our community.
2019 – 2021 Grant
We are pleased to announce that we have entered into a 3-year funding agreement with Surf Life Saving Hawkes Bay. In each of next three years, subject to certain conditions being met, we will be gifting Surf Life Saving a minimum of $20,000 year for a total grant of $60,000 or more!
These funds will be critical in supporting the lifeguarding services they provide across the main Hawkes Bay beaches during the summer months and associated provision of search and rescue responses throughout the year.
