The auction for the 40 larger-than-life kangaroos ended last week with the Hop for Hop event raising over $160,000 for the Alannah and Madeline foundation.
Jill (the name given to the roo I painted) sold with a final bid of $5,750.
The Hop for Hope event was an exhibition held through September and October at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery. You can read more about it in my other posts here:
I hope Jill enjoys her new home! (I wonder if she will be an indoor or outdoor roo?).
