Auctioned artworks from 34 New Zealand artists have raised $72,200 for HIv/AIDS work in New Zealand, with a further $40,000 raised my sales of cosmetics. NZAF spokesperson Jonathan Smith says he is "over the moon" with the response from artists wanting to be involved and the amount collected. "We had to decline offers by a number of top artists to be involved this year as we had the required number of artists," but he says the event will be staged again in 2004. In addition to the $72,000 raised on the night the M.A.C. AIDS Fund presented the New Zealand AIDS Foundation with a cheque for $40,000 from the sale of the M.A.C. Viva Glam lipstick.
