ADI Development Group is no stranger to throwing a crowd-pleasing event. After hosting a super successful design-inspired function in late November, the Burlington-based developer partnered with the Canadian Diabetes Association to present ARTINDEX.
Crowds of local residents packed into the LINK Condos + Towns presentation centre last night to join the fight against diabetes and participate in a live art auction.
Nine vibrant paintings were displayed throughout the space, as interested bidders circled the room to view each one before speaking to the local artists themselves. A few large pieces of global photography and a portrait photo session and lesson were also being auctioned off at the event.
The inspiration behind many of the works of art varied — some were a reflection of the neighbouring Bronte Creek while others were a tribute to the artists’ personal experiences. Photographer Inger Mackenzie also created a notable photo series that documents the life of Lucy McFarland, a bubbly 13-year-old diagnosed with diabetes.
Attendees sipped on cocktails and sampled hors d’oeuvres from The Alex, a restaurant in Burlington that specializes in small plate fine dining (read: wild mushroom risotto and petite chicken meatballs).
And it wasn’t long before guest auctioneer Bob Cowan, co-host of CHCH Morning Live, took the stand. With all the proceeds being donated to Halton’s Canadian Diabetes Association, people were quick to bid well above the minimum asking price.
The presentation centre, located at 5210 Dundas Street West in Burlington, is a direct reflection of the new community that will soon take shape. LINK Condos will house a selection of modern suites and townhomes that link to the green vistas of Bronte Creek.
The development will also feature a central courtyard with a manicured garden, a recreation centre on the second floor and two spacious terraces that will overlook the ravine.
Suites range from 435 to 1,396 square feet and prices start in the $170,000s.
