Last items from Sven Nys, Stefan Everts, Tony Cairoli, Ken De Dycker and Bart Wellens now on auction!
On Wednesday June 16 the final section of the Pictures4health auction will be launched at e-bay. Pictures4health is a Belgian charity that supports children who are seriously ill through ‘Make a Wish New Zealand’ and the Oliva fund (www.olivia.be).
In support of the Pictures4health cause sports photographer Stefan Geukens has produced a coffee table book called Blink of an eye. The book was launched at a unique gala event last year on the 23rd of September. Additionally a series of on-line auctions with collector’s items of well-known sports personalities was organized. Both the sale of the book and the auctions have generated a significant amount of money (and publicity) for the charities.
To check what’s available in the final part of the auction on e-bay just type in
