There were 49 auction slots at this year's event and the children's artwork raised about $6300, she said. There were 14 pieces of children's artwork auctioned off, created by local children living with cancer.
Paige Maxwell, a 7-year-old Lynmore Primary School pupil, was one of the children who had artwork bought at the event.
She said she felt "pretty happy" as she presented her artwork to the room, and when it was bought.
Paige said "one of my friends" bought the artwork, and that the lady had bought some of her pieces from other years. It was her fifth time at the event, she said.
