The auction was held in the gardens of the ICRC Delegation on Friday February 19, after the official opening of the Tengenenge exhibition from the private collection of Mrs. Imbrova.
Donation of five extra pieces from Tengenenge was bidding for 40 minutes and their quality and attractivity raised surprising results for Zimbabwe Red Cross Society
The other 150 guests were pleased by the selection of 33 pieces delivered directly from Tengenenge after Mrs. Imbrova's selection.
Two-thirds of the exhibited pieces were sold for 2050 USD. This amount was handed over by the Regional Delegate of the ICRC and Mrs. Marie Imbrova to Dominic Benhura, new director of Tengenenge since 2007, for Tengenenge pre-school and children's play centre.
The day after, February 20, Dominic Benhura received his 2nd NAMA Awards and the Arts Service Award , on behalf of Tengenenge.
